Default Thursday 6-21-12 Report

Took my daughter, her boy friend and best friend out yesterday for some snapper fishing. In most circumstances I would have called it when we hit the pass, but they all had the day off and I scheduled my day off so we could go. Looks like it was a good choice anyway, because the forecast isn't any better for a while.
Anyway, we hit the pass about 8:00 a.m. and boats were stacked up around the steel jetty, but we pressed on, only a couple of the big charter boats were going out. I had planned to go out the the LAARs east area as there are lots of options, but there was just no way to make that run yesterday in a 21' boat. We headed east to one of the nearby natural bottom spots.
No way I could hold up on the spot, so we marked it and anchored; not perfect, but close enough for the conditions. Katie immediately puts a keeper in the box she's having fun now! Zak is having some difficulty and switched rigs a couple times and caught a few smaller fish on a double drop rig. The freaking dolphin are thick and thieves!!!!! These peckerheads are toying with our fish as we're reeling them in and splashing all around the boat. We managed to pick up six keepers. I caught 4 on spinning tackle and Sirena caught 1. I noticed our bouy drifting off and decided to pick up before we lost it, so we pulled anchor and went after it. It must have cut off on the bottom as the weight was gone when we pulled it up. Tried to go back and drift over the spot to pick up our last two, but just couldn't make it happen. Headed in and stopped at Ft. McRee to let a couple kids get their land legs back. The ride back in was like surfing, unreal big waves out there!
Finally on the way back through the bay I stopped at one last spot and Katie picked up another snapper (too small) and one small Gag grouper which we snagged a picture of her with, and gently released.
They were all troopers and I am especially proud of my daughter and her boating/fishing skill. It would have been an extremely difficult day without her help.

Absolutely, wish it could have been a bit smoother, but all had fun and took home some dinner.
