Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Capt. George Welcome
August 22, 2005
Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

Going back in time: Scott had out Don Mirth from Melbourne, his son and

grandson John. Opting for 8-dozen shiners they departed early AM with great

anticipation of a fantastic Stick Marsh day and they certainly weren't

disappointed. Bass were found to be in current and outside of the current with

the better fish coming outside the current. Free-lined shiners worked in the

current and shiners on float out of the current.

John Mirth with a 6.5-pound bass and lots of smiles. Shiners were gone by 12:30.

The balance of the month since the 10th we have hit the Marsh several times

with mixed results. One day they would be hitting and the next day it would be,

"where did they go?". When we did find them it was along the ditches of the Farm

and in the wood on the NW area of the Marsh. We could get a sporadic bite if we

traveled from visible wood to visible wood on the Marsh. which if you were

spending a full day out there might be something to try. Also on the south end

of the Farm we found them next to visible wood. The bait most successful for

this pointed type fishing was the Senko fished weightless.

The heat has been playing a major factor in the bite as well as time of day.

Afternoon bite has been pretty good as you can see from other reports.

As we start into the fall the heat will lessen and things will be back to

normal. It has been hotter than usual this year so if you are going out there be

prepared. Lots of water, plenty of sunscreen, and cool clothing are all required

if you are going to cope with the heat.

In between we have been doing a bit of the salt and have had good success on

the Indian River. Multiple species have been the order each time out there, with

a mix of Reds, Jacks, Ladyfish, Sharks and Tarpon. Scott got jumped by what

appeared to be a 50-pound Tarpon the day before yesterday, but 8-pound line and

Tarpon don't mix well, with the Tarpon winning with a quick snap of the line.

See you out there.
