See What's in Store at Marker 54
Off and on all week the weather threatened us but we got it done in the Blow and surprisingly enough, many days turned out to be delightful
OK, say it like Van Morrison would…Wo, O...Oh Pompano!
Pompano were the main target each day and we were rarely disappointed.
Pompano Galore at marker 54.
Our Trips averaged around 80 fish per day with some nice keeper Trout, Pompano and Mackerel.
Early, it looked bad out Sunday morning but, O What a Beautiful Morning it turned out to be. All out On Marker 54. Grandpa Jack, Dad, Ken and Grandson Nick proved to be the match for over 140 total fish caught today. Mostly C&R but some were absolutely huge. For example, they each caught a Super Pompano and tons of Spanish Mackerel
and a bucket load of C&R Baby Tarpon Ladyfish :-)
We used over 300 live baits Sunday and what a workout they gave Ole Captain Russ. Tide Walker Charters. 239 994 7818 Cape Coral / Bokeelia, Florida.
Additionally, Captain Russ guided three of his clients this week to their first Snook catch and release. EWTG. Fun for everyone.
On the Inter-coastal waterway on the sandbar at Marker 54, the bite has been nuts producing many keepers. We are still working the sandbar and grass flat edges where the structure starts to dive from 4.5'/ 5' to deeper channel waters. Using a 4' leader under a popping cork, ¼ oz. chartreuse jig on 30 lb. mono leaders baited with a live shrimp.
The Cold Fronts have dropped our coastal water Temperature from 78.4 to 66.5 degrees. Surprisingly enough, the bite is still good.
If you aren't catching 50 to 80 fish per day, try a Tide Walker Charters teaching charter.
Till next tide; Enjoy the Magic of Florida Fishing.
EVERY TRIP IS AN ADVENTURE!
