Fishing Report: A Week of Unexpected Targets and Thrilling Catches
Date: 10/10/23 - 10/16/23
Location: South, near reefs and islands.
Big Black Drum
Our enthusiastic crew expressed a keen interest in trout in a week that deviated from our usual pursuits, leading us on two distinct adventures to the south.
On our first outing, we embarked on a lengthy journey southward, setting our sights on the reefs. Our primary aim was to locate a dense population of speckled trout. While our journey led us to encounter a few bull reds and white trout, our perseverance paid off when we stumbled upon a school of feeding speckled trout. The crew managed to secure a commendable catch, but our expedition was cut short as we had to leave due to an approaching water spout.
Our subsequent venture took a similar trajectory south, but this time, we explored the islands in search of the speckled trout. Several thrilling catches, including bull reds, sizable black drums, and Jacks, marked the day. Once again, our patience was rewarded as we located a feeding school of speckled trout. The crew decided to keep a portion of their catch, releasing the remainder. The day concluded on a high note with a cooler full of speckled trout.
Safety Note: Anglers are advised to remain vigilant and monitor weather conditions, especially when water spouts are forecasted in the vicinity.
Reflections from the Captain:
It’s the little things!! I am very fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living. I try to take this shot every morning to remind myself of where I came from, where I am now and to never forget the people that have helped me get here.
