Well this trip had an unusual twist. The fishing was slow and only produced five keeper Sea Trout, the twist was these folks were from France and barley spoke any English which really made hard to explain techniques so we had to fish white bait on bobbers. it was probably one of the hardest trips Ive done simply because of the language barrier. they did manage to take home a few eaters.

We began our trip fishing Useppa Island in Pine Island Sound were we threw white bait under miscellaneous docks and produced several Grouper with Spanish Mackerel and Sea Trout mixed in. it was a good day on the water.

We started our trip from my usual marina this morning and headed toward Captiva Pass where we tossed mid sized greenbacks (pilchards) to hungry snook. After boating a few we hit the bushes of Pine Island Sound and found a couple of hungry Red fish, it was a good day on the flats.

We had a tough day today looking for something other than Sea Trout, we searched the mangrove islands that make up Pine Island Sound looking for Snook and Red Fish When we came to a hole where we thought we had found some Snook laying on the bottom. i began chumming with some Pilchards and then we put our lines in, to our surprise we had found a hole full of 23"-25" Gator Sea Trout, it wasn't what we were looking for but they sure were fun.

We left from Pine Islands Pineland Marina on a windy day right after a cold front, we began by throwing plastics (which i often do) and caught several decent Sea Trout, when that bite slowed we went south to the southern tip of Useppa Island and caught more Sea Trout with one exception, a 6-1/4 pound Pompano. the biggest Ive ever seen.

We started out with these folks from Canada and their wife's one of which had never been on a boat before let alone been fishing. We went back to the spot that i had good luck at the day before but this time it wasn't meant to be due to a fat approaching cold front and 35 mph winds. While we were fishing a Manatee popped up right next to the boat and that got the girls excited. Since the guys and i were already in the lunch mode knowing the fishing was going to be bad i asked if the girls would like to go to a spot i new of were Manatees and alligators frequented, they were all over it. We saw several Manatees a got to see a gator snatch an egret from a branch. This made the for all of them.

We started from Pineland Marina this morning and went to the north side of Pine Island Sound. We threw lots of plastic baits that produced several Sea Trout from 18-21" and a nice 4-1/2# Pompano. That bite started to slow down so we picked up and moved to Rocky channel where the bite was still active, We boated several more nice Sea Trout and a 5-1/2 pound Pompano. This was these guys best trip to date and they threatened to be back.

We started out trip from Pineland Marina and ran to Wood Key in Pine Island Sound where we hit the bushes with big live shrimp and cut Lady fish. After awhile we had boated five Red fish and then moved out on the flats where we encountered Sea Trout and big Lady fish. It turned out to be another good day on the water.

This was going to be an interesting trip. These folks were from Indiana, were used to fishing for catfish with cane poles. This became quite obvious when i saw one of them turn the reel upside down and started reeling it backwards. After a little instruction they started to get the hang of things and while we wee fishing they told me they try to go fishing whenever they go somewhere, unfortunately they never caught anything, until this trip. At the end they ended up with five keeper Sea trout, four Silver trout,a Pompano and a Black tip Shark. It was their best trip to date.

Well i had the Canadians back for some more rod bending action. We caught who knows how many Sea Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevale and and few Silver Trout. These guys had a ball just like they always do when we're out. I can't wait for the next time, they're just a great bunch of guys who love to cut up and catch fish.

Black Tips were on the radar this trip. These guys had heard of their excellent table fair and wanted to put some on the grill and that's exactly what they did. The day ended up with six keeper Sea Trout up to 20", two Pompano and three Black Tips, the biggest of which went straight to the grill.

This day was interesting to say the least. My clients this morning were from Switzerland which i felt was very informative. I learned some of the species they target there and that many were the same as in our norther states. Pike, Salmon,Walleye,etc. neither of these guys were to impressed with the small Sea Trout we were catching but once we hit a school of big Lady Fish their eyes lit up, one after another a few actually pulled one of them around the boat. You could tell both had done considerable fishing by the way they handled their rods during the fight. It was a good day for all three of us.

Well we had another good day. We began our trip from Pine Island and went north to Patricio Island where we started our drift. It wasn't long before the first fish was on, a Spanish Mackerel. We continued to drift with just a few bites when i decided to move a few hundred yards. It wasn't long and all three rods were bent two with Sea Trout and one with a nice Pompano. We managed to boat another twenty or so Sea Trout before making another move and oncw again we started catching more Sea Trout.

Well we started out from Pineland Marina like i usually do and knew immediately that i was going to have my hands full with the weather conditions. I would have normally cancelled this trip due to the 25 knot winds from the north. These guys from Canada weren't quitters and it was the only day they could go. So we went. I had to use my sea anchors this day other wise we would not have been able to control the drifts we were making, even that seemed almost impossible but we did catch fish. After awhile i went to a spot behind Cabbage Key that i thought might be protected and it was. It was in fact warm and calm and the warm muddy bottom produced several Sea Trout to 23" and a couple of Mangrove snapper and two Flounder. We left with a good limit of fish after all.

We started out trip from Pineland Marina on Pine Island and fished the northern end of Pine Island Sound. We did like i like to do on my trips throwing artificials. We had a great day catching 30-40 Sea Trout, Spanish Mackerel and a few nice sized Pompano. These boys from Minnesota absolutely loved the clear blue skies and the constant action.
