Place your fishing pictures and tales here!
Went here (Puget Sound, Seattle) with a good buddy of mine... that is a flotilla of boats in the distance.
Saw some of these on the way... fish thievin' Sea Lions.
Fish on !!!
He didn't tell me we were catching beer thievin' fish !!! Trying to swallow the entire BOTTLE without opening it first. (Fish are dumb)
Got back to shore, cleaned up the boat.
Went back to his place and fillet our catch, sealed 'em up for the freezer.
And drank some more of those beers, and ATE some of those beer thieving fish !!
Here's a few from the southwest Gulf Coast of FL. My dad is a charter captain down on Marco Island, I spent most of of time offshore working (if you could call it that) the boat with him and my twin brother. We do mostly drift and anchored bottom fishing over various hard bottom andcstructure ranging from 1 to 35 miles out.
Keeper Gag grouper caught on a live pin fish in about 120ft of water 30 miles or so out.
36" cobia caught on a free lined grunt.
My twin brother Scott with a nice gag grouper caught on a live sand perch in about 80 ft 5 mile reef Marco island.
capt rich my dad up top, with a nice king mackerel, and a good days haul of red grouper back at the dock.
Nice array of fish there. Used to do a LOT of halibut fishing when I was in Alaska. Still got a buddy with a boat in Anchorage... need to pair up with him again... now that digital cameras exist.
Halibut fishing looks like an awesome time. I've always wanted to go to Alaska. I spent a summer in Oregon/ Washington about 6 years ago and I was planning on getting up there it just didn't work out. A good friend of mine is in Skagway right now working.
Do a little bit of fishing myself. Usually spend a few nights a year on the Padre National Seashore. Drive and camp on the beach, its like having your own personal beach far enough down! I built a little trailer with a rooftop tent, shower and generator with a/c lol!
Yes!! Nice pics, That second red is a monster. I like your mobile operational support center too haha. I used to drive to the national sea shore a few miles down almost every day when I lived in corpus when I first joined the navy. Such a great spot. There wasnt much going on in the barracks so I fished the sea shore and Oso bay every day I could. Mostly got into big black drum on the bay though. Not nearly as much fun as a nice bull red, they just sit there being heavy and useless and wait to get dragged in. Maybe they'd put up more of a fight if the water wasn't 2 feet deep all the way across!
Camping, fishing, hunting... why don't people "get it" ? Lookin' like a great time there.
These pics make me want to go fishing.......Nice
MD1005, used to fish down Marco way. Actually out of Port Of The Islands Marina just south of Marco.
Ever had the seafood chowder at the Snook Inn ?? Best in Marco. --- pruhdlr
I haven't fished port of the islands much. I have some friends that do well down there on some big triple tail and cobia. We used to go southwest out to the different towers that are down that way off shore for grouper and amberjack. A couple of my wifes friends have been working at the snook for years. never had the seafood chowder though. I used to go there all the time from the marco pass and dock up when i was growing up. Ever eat at the little bar in goodland? Right there on the backside of Marco. They do some fine seafood, they've got a really good conch chowder.
Goodland ???????? Damn...haven't thought about that little community in years. And yep...had the conch chowder. I have a friend that has a little "shack" in Goodland. One way in ..... one way out. Had some warm beer at that lille bar also...didn't complain though,it was colder than the ambiant air in late August. Not as salty either.
Yep,we've fished some of the same waters. --- pruhdlr
Haha yep spent lots of time in good land growing up. Stan's on Sunday was a regular thing. Plenty of beers at the little bar too. The fishing ive done down there is Some of the best ive done. It's a small world (state?)
Is the big fish a drum?
Yep red drum.
WenI lived on the Outer Banks Hattres inlet on the first full moon in may they came in and the water was red. People were shoulder to shoulder trying to catch them was way fun
In Alaska... we call that "Combat Fishing". Except it's generally on a river bank... and both sides of the bank are full of fishermen. You DEFINITELY need to learn how to choreograph your hook slings with (not only) your folks near you... but the opposing side as well. Kinda fun once you get into the rhythm of it.
Some crappie from LOP "Lake o' the Pines" in East Texas.
DW and I putting the hurtin on them at Lake Palestine.
