24,25 Nov reports, lots of species

Matlacha - Saltwater Fishing Report

24, 25 Nov 2014
Lots of fish species around. 24 and 25 Nov fishing with the wind isn't an easy task but it is doable. With the wind blowing around 15 mph on Monday it was a good day out on the flats if you know what to look for. Its not as easy as a calm day but as I've said in previous posts look for the schools of mullet and see if there is a lot going on behind them. On this day after catching our bait we went looking for snook in some usual places but the fog kept me from seeing anything and as the fog lifted the tide was changing and I wanted to head to a different area to find some reds. After some scouting we found a lot of life in the backcountry as did a couple other boats. But we slowly got up in the mix of things and tried a bag full of bait, from Pins, greenies and mullet nothing but sharks were biting. This was going to be a harder day than I wanted. Later in the day when the tide was coming in strong with the southerly wind we caught Reds, trout, Snook, Black tips, Sail cats and Jacks galore on all the bait we had, it was truly a feeding frenzy.
On 25 Nov after catching bait and deciding how long I wanted to stay out with the stronger winds showing up in the a.m. I headed out to the flats looking for life and there was plenty of it, seagulls tearing up bait fish on the top while Jacks and blues were tearing up the bait from under. Since I had time to kill I decided to see what was hitting underneath hence the jacks and blues and while playing in with the seagulls low tide almost got me. Thank god my boat can get skinny! Well on this extremely windy day I thought might be a loss I started hitting the windward sides of islands and funnels and just like yesterday every type of fish was hitting and I got another inshore slam along with more than my share of huge Jacks.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving day and weekend.

If you're ready to go fishing give me a call to plan your trip so we can try and catch the tides right. And if you're a Veteran with proof I have the best prices around.
