Re: Pompano

The Lighthouse Special Clouser, attributed to Terrier who posts here, is olive over chartreuse, over white, with some gold flash.

Lots of Lady's and spanish around plus others. Of course have had a number of ? fish that broke me off. Never k...

Terrier,

SGI. Also, we caught spanish, lady's, and blue runners. Other species were around, but no love on those. Never know what you'll pull around there.

Re: Fish bit someone at St marks sandbar

Are y’all catching the puffers on live bait? We’ve been fishing the refuge every weekend since March ( too windy to get offshore) and haven’t caught a single one. Plenty of reds and trout, but no trash fish. I can't get out if the damn things. They've destroyed a bunch of tackle and a net for me. S...

Re: St Marks NWR - 02 May 2021

Sounds like a great day with lots of pull backs. Son and I went east of lighthouse yesterday and fished some deeper water with limited success and then went creek fishing. I only managed a trout for the box on a lighthouse special, but he did well on reds up to 30" and others on spinning gear.

Re: SPANISH MACKS

Its fun to catch them on the fly, but tough on the fly's and get bit off a lot. Knotable wire works well for the latter, but its spendy.

Re: Cedar Key Reports?

Glad you got some pull backs. Is a good ramp, guess the city just has limited revenue streams. Would like to get back there, my kind of place.

Re: Cedar Key Reports?

Have only fished there once in Dec. a few years ago for
a couple days with son. We just drifted around the islands in his old 13 whaler and caught trout. He spin fishes and i'm a fly guy. Cool little town. Ramp fee was $15, a little high i thought.

Re: St Marks NWR - 02 May 2021

Wading the bars whenever possible - I hate fishing out of a kayak but sometimes you have to. It's so much less aggravating wading then being in a kayak. Agree Terrier!! I think the best inshore skiff are my two feet and legs. Unfortunately, too many places ya would sink up to your eyeballs, get eat...
