Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that 2016 is a fantastic year for all. It's hard to believe that another year has passed by so quickly. 2015 was a wonderful year for us. Making many new fishing friends and seeing lots of familiar faces throughout the year. Thanks for making it a memorable year for me! Guess what??? Here it is January and it's still in the 80's everyday. Talk about a mild winter so far...I can't remember a hotter year than 2015. But is has been a fun year fishing anyway!
Fishing this past week has continued to be good for us. Lots of species being caught with sheepshead and snapper the most prevalent bite on any given day. We are still catching redfish around the mangroves and docks with a few snook in the mix. Black drum are moving into the river and that bite should only improve. Croakers are scattered around the area with some nice sized ones being caught. Jacks, ladyfish and blue runners are moving into the inlet with the incoming tides. Some Spanish mackerel are being caught as well around the inlet. Pompano are scattered and we have not found any quantities to speak of so far. It's going to be a great January ahead!
Don was back with his family for a morning on the river. Lexi and Sammy had an exciting adventure catching lots of fish and watching dolphins play. Then helped catch enough for dinner. Laura and Gideon had a beautiful day to enjoy the water. Gideon caught a lot of fish and took one home for his grandpa, Arthur. Doug, Cade and Ken had an awesome day. The guys caught many species with three redfish along with sheepshead, snapper and croakers to make for a good day of fishing. Henry, Rhonda and Cole were back for vacation and another fishing adventure. Everyone caught lots of fish and enough for Cole to take home for dinner. Sheepshead, redfish, snook and a host of other species made for an exciting day. It was another fun week on the water!
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
