Flat Calm and The Fish Bit

Flat Calm and The Fish Bit

Check out the Daily Catch at Sunset Marina!

Today we had the kind of weather that ocean fishermen dream about.  Flat calm seas, sunny skies, no precipitation and we even had some biting fish.  What a great day to be on the water.  Looks like we’ve even got some more of it over the next few days to boot!

Last night, Shaun Flaherty hit the route 50 bridge where he continued his fish catching prowess and attempt to become angler of the year for the ACSA once again.  Shaun landed some big bluefish and caught and released a big 39.25″ rockfish on the night.

Anglers fishing on board Bayside Guide Service with Captain Jim Murray and Eric Blanks had some great fishing for bluefish at the route 50 bridge with “chopper” sized fish on both trips.

Chase Slaboda and Lamont Hilbert had some good fishing on Lamont’s private boat Seabum with some flounder, sea bass and triggerfish.

The Judith M fishing out of Bahia Marina saw plenty of fish come over the rail today with sea bass and some nice triggerfish in the mix.

Brian Brannan and his crew headed to the north in the ocean today and found 7  sea bass and 4 keeper flounder.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star had two trips today with fish caught on both.  His regular trip was sea bass city, and this afternoon he took some kids and had fun with sea bass, trout and triggerfish.

A summer day as we’d like to remember them all: flat calm and the fish bit. Works. Ethan & Henry from Minnesota launched our reef blocks over the stern rail at Capt Bob’s Memorial Reef. I was able to get a decent sidescan snap – there’s a large field of pipe and blocks with a small tug and barge just east. Capt Jerimiah has two more pieces coming – another small tug and barge. At 55ft deep it’s his hope beginning divers will be able to develop their skills while experiencing an interesting site. I promise fishermen will enjoy it. Fishing today was just a bit better than so-so better than average of late. Despite an almost tepid bite, Darren from Nebraska (well versed in ocean bottom fishing!) using pink shine Gulp!- and Zig’s brother in law using boat bait, were both on fire – Jeff too – they each caught a limit. By day’s end everyone had plenty of dinner. Bill from Minnesota landed the pool winner. Don’t know why the rail was so light. Vic & I enjoyed it. We’ll pay the rent tonight!Cheers, Monty

Auctioned off a Kids’ Trip at the Reef Dinner in May. Max, Javi & Rocco’s Grandad won the auction. Though I was concerned about t-storms, they dissipated inshore; we tied her loose into a near-perfect calm.
For the first time ever even juvenile sea bass gave me a fit! Had to hit 4 different reefs to get these little fellows some action.
Dogone it.. Really fish? Tonight!?!
Perseverance our only hope, then success. Caught a few triggers, some spike sea trout & a few little cbass. Saw a school of spade fish too; but, with no current? No takers..
After a couple hours these youngsters were done.
I don’t know if we started anything in em or not – maybe..
Cheers,
Monty
