Went out this morning about 10am, had 4 rods out on Johnson beach, Fish Caught were 2 Bull Reds, 16 Bluefish, 12 Spanish Mackerel, and 22 Pompano, Also had a live hardtail out and hooked a Tarpon, but he cut the leader. was wondering if anyone else has ever caught Tarpon in the Area, didnt think they came this far up the coast? Going back after this cold/rain front moves through. not a bad haul today. Was using sand fleas, shrimp, cigar minnows, and gotcha plugs. 2nd Bull Red was caught on Yo-Zuri Hydro Tiger on top of the sandbar. The Pompano were chasng the hell out of some type of bait on the Sandbar, I kept casting shrimp in midst of em and kept getting hooked up, decent sizes.

jigslinger, not to be rude or anything, but i was there, my cousin Mike Peek, who is a well respected Charter Boat Captain from Orange Beach was there, we know what we caught, were not here to impress anybody, most of our fish were released, some were kept. All we did when we got there was follow the birds, they led us to the fish, most of em held in the deep pocket between the 1st and 2nd sandbar. There were 2 other fisherman there about 100 yards off of us and they slammed some fish as well. they were just there, can't explain it, best day ive had in a looooonnngggg time. The fish would come up onthe sandbar, and the school in the deep water between them. It was just our lucky day i guess.:moon

we recorded the water temp at 61 degrees, not sure why the fish were there but they were there, we would see the birds diving and we would start casting as far as we could. People were also doing well on West Beach Pass in Gulf Shores, fishing the deep channel spot right off the sandbar. We let most of the fish go mainly because we had a small coo;er, and we even got checked for fishing licences, couldn't believe it.

asago (3/9/2010)The water temp was 61? I recorded 56 just a few miles away from you around the same time.... hard to believe we've got a 5 degree temperature difference on the beach within just a few mile span....


with all seriousness...most of the water temp reports that i've gotten lately has the gulf along the beach at around 61 and thats from multiple sources.



with that being said, congrats to the original poster for being one awesome fisherman, noones seen a spanish, tarpon, hardtail, or a decent number of pomps around here in months and you managed to do a number on them in one day...when noone else did
