Well it really is March. One day it blows and the next it doesn't. I have missed the last week of fishing due a nasty intestinal critter that has kept very near to certain parts of the house. However, March is looking more and more like spring every day. Cobia, tarpon, snook and permit are starting to ramble. Redfish, trout and Spanish mackerel are very strong. It is going to be a great spring!!
March 1 -- A half day trip with Fred Jette and Elaine Schmitt of Stuart, did not produce many of the big snappers that we were after, but Fred did score a nice King fish, along with a Spanish mackerel, blue runners, little snappers, six million jacks and Elaine muscled up a small goliath grouper.. I am pretty sure we had one cobia on, but .... Keep the anchor story between us guys!
March 2 -- Howard and the rest of his group of six from Ft. Lauderdale, unfortunately caught the March wrath as it blew 20-25 all day. The fishing was great, but the catch was very tough. Catfish, ladyfish and trout were the highlights this day, as There was not a snook or redfish to be found in this entire "liquid desert" we call the Everglades National Park. We all, especially the kids had a good time and that is the most important thing.
March 3 -- Kevin Stutz and his wife Charlene caught a nice day between the wind. Kevin has fished with me several times before, but this was Charlene's first trip. She was great!! Charlene broke the ice with a very nice tarpon (actually a jack crevalle) about 10 pounds. There were tarpon around us, slow tarpon. I saw a tarpon roll on her bait, but the jack won the race. Several very nice triple-tail were landed and Kevin wrestle a while with a goliath. Jacks and ladyfish we abundant.
March 4 -- I fished with Al Lorenzetti and Tim Smith trying to finish up some fly fishing footage for a video that were shooting. Basically, we were blown off the water and managed only a few small snook on fly. The water was turbid as chocolate milk. Not a good day.
March 5 -- Larry Guilbeau and his buddy from Dallas had a very good day with cobia, triple-tail, goliath groupers -- small and very larger, snapper, Spanish mackerel, jacks, runners and sharks. We had some very good opportunities with some very larger permit, but they were not taking the jigs today.
March 6, 7 -- Bob Cousins fished with too other captains in my place due to my intestinal incapacitation catching seven snook on fly the first day and a 1/2 dozen more with Capt. Bruce Hitchcock the second. Bob did get a unique pre-historic fish with Bruce that day a juvenile sawfish.
March 8-13 -- Praying to the Porcelain God!!! But I am back!!!
