Weekend Fishing

Clearwater Beach and Hurricane Pass, Well the fishing has really turned on and anywhere you go should be good. We decided to check out Clearwater Pass and the markers we hit the #1 Marker and had some great luck. After Baiting up we caught about 4 Spanish Mackerel on light colored Jigs and silver rattle Traps. Then we decided to move towards Hurricane Pass and try some inshore flats for trout. but on the way we thought we would troll for some larger spanish macks. We hooked up with about 4 more macks some up to 20". Once inshore we hooked into some trout and even a Cobia hit our small live shrimp. And we ended up landing a 4 ft. Bonnet Shark (Hammerhead family). The fishing is picking up and we're staying on them. Reports we have are of Tarpon schooling and rolling near the skyway and inner bay bridges. Red fish and trout are all over the flats. Permit are on the closer wrecks hitting smaller crabs. Pompano are on the beaches. Large King fish are on the inner side of Egmont Key. Spanish Macks are all along the Beaches. Tight Lines

Clearwater Beach Fishing

We headed out of Seminole Boat ramp and thought we would just play around on the beaches and fish a little. We had a Live well full of shrimp and we really were looking to catch some flounder. We also wanted to catch a few Blue Runners in the event we made it the top of Honeymoon Island we could do a little shark fishing. So we headed straight for the last marker out of Clearwater pass and circling around the marker were about 6 keeper sized Cobia. We immediately through a few live shrimp towards them. But the Cobia were'nt the only thing in the water I was lucky and landed about a 19" Spanish mackerel and then we hooked a few Flounder. The rest of our hits cut our line immediately since we weren't expecting the Spanish to be that thick we weren't running wire leaders. The Cobia were more reluctant or should I say elusive. We did hook a few Blue runners though and we headed for the beaches. We ended up in Hurricane Pass and wade fished. We landed another Flounder and About 5 fish that looked like a type of drum but were extremely silver and had a black marking on the back of the top tip of their Tail. I will post pictures when I get them downloaded. Seems like the fishing is picking up and this next weekend shoudl eb one of the best yet. Tight Lines
