late report for ponce inlet

Postby captain john » Fri Jun 16, 2006 4:26 pm

Late off shore report for last week—No 600 pound Mako sharks last week, but we did see a 300 or 400 pound Bull shark on a 6 hour charter. He ate 3 out of 4 Bonita’s that we had on at once. He was hooked up for about 20 sec.: he ate our Ballyhoo on 80 lb mono. We had a limit of King Mackerel and about 20 Barracudas along with 10 Bonita. We also had a bunch of fish heads that the Cudas got before we could get them to the boat. We also had a sail fish on for a minute or two before he jumped of along with 2 Dolphins.

On 6/6/06, we had a 6 hour charter (you just knew it was going to be one of those days), when everything just goes to H___, and nothing as it should. We lost a bunch of fish, including a Sailfish, a Dolphin and some King Mackerel. But by the end of the charter, our luck changed for the best. We started catching King Mackerel that reminded whole. And the trip maker, a 50 pound Cobia. The mate just happened to look up in the air, when we had the Cobia coming to the boat; he saw a Frigate bird only 12 miles offshore. It turned out to be a good day. Oh ya! , we also saw an 8 foot Hammer head shark: he was just cruising around, probably looking fro the South Atlantic Ocean seal (the local surfer).

King Mackerel are on the reefs-from 65 to 90 ft., we are catching most of our bigger fish on a bait rig deep and a red spoon short. Dolphin are still out there in 160 ft, but the numbers being caught have gone down. Wahoo are mixed in with Dolphin along with a Sailfish or two.

Bottom fishing has been OK in 100 to 250 ft of water on the ledges and wrecks. Grouper and AJ are eating live bail, Hard Tails and Pinfish. Snappers are eating live Hard Tails.

Hope to Sea Ya on the water soon.
