Triple Tails at the Pass

Capt. Larry Pentel
July 8, 2009
Apalachicola - Saltwater Fishing Report

Whoo- been here at Indian Pass for a week now. Weathered out the past couple days (lottsa rain and fire in the sky)but the first 5 days were great !

The bait ( pogies) are here as are the Tarpon. Not in record numbers but there are a couple fish being caught each day with a few more jumped as well. Capt Pete White got one to the boat (with a 15 year old angler no less!)last Friday a little over 8 feet long he estimated at just over 200#. A great way to run his first Tarpon trip of the season ! The Silver King bite should get better and better over the next couple weeks as the bait and tarpon start getting more concentrated along the beaches. Most of the action so far has been in the Passes, both Indian Pass and West Pass either on the tide change or early and late in the day.

The hot ( really Hot !) bite has been the Tripletails. Plenty of 'em around with some big un's mixed in as well. I ran a half day on the 4th sight fishin' for 'em and we saw 20 on a 4 hour trip, getting 8 to the boat. Proud to say we kept 2 for the table and tagged the other 6. The biggest any of my anglers have boated so far this year has been 17# but I have seen a couple over 20# caught. I was in the tower following one in the 25-30# range that wouldn't stay up for more than 5 seconds at a time the other day. Both my anglers on the bow, ready to throw if he let 'em when we saw another fish about 12# just flat on the surface, lit up like a mirror and too tempting to pass up. By the time my angler had the 12# fish to the boat on the 8# line and light tackle reel I didn't have a clue where the big fish was----- oh well, a sure thing is always better than a good chance !!

It's rumbling out there still this morning and my charter for today is coming tomorrow instead- should be some hungry fish out there with no body messin' with 'em for a few days!!

Gulf Fishing off Grayton Beach in beautiful South Walton. Red Snapper to Cobia to King Mackeral to Grouper. No need to get up early or drive for an hour to a marina. We will pick you up on the beach and be on a reef or wreck in usually less than 15 minutes. Some of the Gulfs best fishing lies just offshore of the snow white sands of South Walton. We also offer Tarpon trips at Indian Pass during the summer run. July and August have large schools of giant Silver Kings feeding just off the beach.
