OVER 180 BLACK DRUM ALONE IN 3 DAYS OF ANGLING!
Starting the day after Christmas, TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS was back at it again, and despite an icy boat in the morning, stiff cold north winds, and extremely low winter tides plenty of fish made it back to the dock.
On SATURDAY my comeback clients were Jim and Pam Guthright from Texas, and in two and a half hours they caught and released 25 or so black drum, as well as a couple of small redfish.
From here they were heading down to the Florida Keys, so they could not take any fish home on this trip. Man, it was so cold they were lucky to stay out that long. Heck, it was so cold I could hardly get the dead shrimp to thaw out!.
On MONDAY I had the Noah Vaughn group aboard TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS once again, and this trio of fishermen wanted fish for a big fish fry, and they got all of the fresh meat they needed.
Matter a fact, when the smoke cleared their take home catch included 66 black drum, 1 nice flounder, and a big sheepshead. Another cold morning, but they fished hard and had a ball catching the drum on light tackle.
By the way, Noah's trip earlier this summer aboard TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS set the one day record for Florida pompano in 2009, 28 fine fish, and they are still dining on those delicious fish.
And then on TUESDAY, well, it was more light tackle fun as my clients Tony Watson and his stepson Steven from Texas had a ball hauling in the fiesty black drum.
When they finished catching a mess of fish their take home catch included 51 black drum and a nice sheepshead.
Throughout these trips we released a number of undersized redfish, and plenty of drum too. However, considering the cold windy conditions all anglers managed to catch plenty of fish.
My hunting party cancelled out for the weekend, and moved it to later in the month so the weekend is now open for some light tackle angling fun.
By the way, it has been an incredible year for TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS, and it's all of you wonderful clients that has made my business such a success.
I've been blessed with hundreds and hundreds of great clients, most that I now consider good personal friends, and regulars aboard my boat. I humbly than all of you for your business, and looking forward to many more fishing adventures with you all in the years to come.
Regards and many thanks to all,
Capt. Robert L. Brodie of TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS
