Walkers Cay/ Grand Cay 4/27/14
I'd like to put in a good word for Capt. Meyer Aubry pictured in rear who put us on fish all weekend and was a lot of fun to be around. If you are ever in Grand Cay or Walkers Cay and need a guide I highly recomend him. He is a hard worker, and a great guy to be around. Capt Meyer spent the entire weekend with us and we all felt we had gained a good friend. We considered him one of the crew.
So I have been a little busy with my latest catch:
But I have been fishing twice since she was born on March 13th. First was a redfish trip where we caught 3 overslot fish(no pics) and decided to go play with the big uglies. I caught one on fly, which took about 45min and while fun, was generally a bad idea lol.
Second trip was our fist Cobia trip of the year on Saturday and it was quite fruitful.......netting my buddy and I our personal bests of 47lbs and 57lbs respectively. Hell of a day!
Very nice pair of cobia.
congrats on new catch. Girls fish too
I got a power rod wrapper/rod building supplies for my birthday in March. If you were thinking about getting into rod building be careful, it is addicting and expensive!
Here is my first build. Its a 7'6 medium I built for redfishing, and its gator themed naturally....
6:30 long video. We did not land him but we did "jump" him. That's one of my son-in-laws up there on the bow. My buddy Bob and I can be heard "encouraging" him.
Beautiful family Rella congrats!
Nice fish as usual but that rod is cool I want to get into that maybe soon.
Great video Roll I love is time of year, time to hunt some tarpon.
Awesome pics, guys! Beautiful family, Rella...love the Gator rod and the fat Cobes. My tournament partner wraps rods a little on the side...think I'll see if he can make one similar for me.
As for the fishing, it's been pretty good over this way despite all the fresh water. We fished Nick's Redfish Roundup out of Choctaw Bay last Saturday and finished 3rd....had a great time and caught a pile of nice fish. Here are a few recent exploits.
That trout was over 27" and weighted 6lb, 13oz on the digi scales.
Oversized red...been catching a lot of these lately.
Opening day.. 31" twins
I should not have clicked on this thread . . . LOL! As we speak, I am supposed to be in Lucaya fishing for yellowfins. We cancelled when one of our crew got the flu. AAAGGGGGHHH!!!!
Nice catches, everyone!!! And congrats, Rella!!!!
uhhh, just PM me and I will step in.. duh.
Baygator... how did you only finish 3rd with that GATOR!? Was it only for Redfish? No way somebody caught a bigger speck. My biggest that I won the yak tournament in Pensacola was 28" and 5.8lb.. yours is so FAT
Gator7_5 --- knew i would be seeing those twin sows on here. Can't wait for July!
yeah, I was thinking the same thing. my pm box must be broken too...
My cousin was fishing off Browns Bank west of Turks and Caicos and hammered the yellowfins and wahoo. Wish i knew how to post pics.
BTTT...It's that time!!!!
Anybody got any reports from Charlotte Harbor? Headed to Englewood fishing for the next week and have not heard good reports. Bait scarse and small, etc.
threadfin are the most plentiful in Pine Island sound at the bridges. got to get em early though as they are getting beaten up quick. ladyfish are working well. buy em if you can find em. whitebait is small. got to chum up pinfish at edge of flat/channel to get bigger ones in 4 feet of water +/-. offshore red grouper bite is good. kingfish still around.
Thanks Gr8t. Been here on Lemon Bay since Sat. Weather has been awesome until today. Have found plenty of bait inside Stump Pass and have done quite well on snook, trout and mangos on the outgoing. House we are in has some giant snook under the lights. Lets just say they didnt get that big by being dumb.
Ill figure out this picture thing eventually.
