I have been fishing bob sikes for the past three nights so here it is

1st day-we got out around 9.it started off pretty slow but after about two hours we got a good bite and landed a 24 inch red.:thumbup:after that red we caught some decent sized white trout and some decent black snapper but nothing huge so we decided to pack it up around 12


3nd day- we got out there around 6 and started to kill the white trout.we managed around 15 trout within an hour.afteer that it slowed down and had a couple big reds on but they all broke off.my brother did manage to get snagged and instead of popping the line and decided to yank on it and snapped my rod.:censored:


3rd day-we got out around 9 and after about ten minutes i landed a MONSTER!!! i was reeling up my bait and i feel a big weight at the end of my line.i was thinking stingray because it wanted to stay at the bottom but it also wasnt pulling so i didnt know what it was. i managed to get it up and it turned out to be a MONSTER can filled with sand and a fiddler crab.other thsn that and some ladys we didnt have any luck.

If you want to catch White Trout cut bait is the best. To me White Trout are nasty..!

Actually ihavent caught a pinfish in a while.we actuallyhave tried to catch some pinfish but couldnt.i guess ive been getting lucky or it might be im using a pretty big hook.i have noticed that when i fish closer to the shore i catch em so try to move down a little.hope you manage to get out of them.

I've been trying to catch the pinfish myself. I usually do well when i have a few of those handy to freeline. Haven't been able to catch any though.

Small hooks and pieces of shrimp for pinfish. Live white trout will catch big reds, specks and flounder.
