Headhunter Outdoors Report 8-28-07

Hi folks Capt. David with the outdoors report. The fishing is great,weather permitting. This time of the year it’s a good idea to pay close attention to the weather reports and use some common sense. Thunderstorms ain’t funny when you get caught in one and it doesn’t matter whether you are 30 miles offshore or in the sound. Lightening is a killer and being the tallest thing around doesn’t help much! Not to mention the winds associated with a strong thunderstorm. No matter how good a seaman you are, if you ain’t scared in a storm,you’re stupid! Lay the rods down, lower the antennae and stay low. If you are on the sound get out of the boat if possible. Get to shelter as soon as possible. The reason i’m telling you folks this is I got caught in one the other day and it scared the heck out of me. I pulled up to a community dock and got out of the boat and under the shelter till it passed. Then we went and caught some Reds!
Ok, Offshore everything is pretty much the same with everything biting. Folks I’ve been hearing reports of Sailfish in as close as a mile out the inlet. Kings are just outside the inlet as well. The artificial reefs are holding a mixed bag ranging from bottom fish such as Black bass,Snappers,Flounder, and maybe a Grouper. Up in the water column,Kings,Sailfish,Sharks,Barracuda,Spanish,and Tarpon are readily available now. Folks just name your game and go after it now. Small boat owners should be able to get in on anything out there now.
Inshore pretty much the same with Redfish everywhere. Trout in the surf and up in the River. Flounder are under the docks and around any structure you can find. The deep hole at the mouth of most marsh creeks is a good place to start looking . All three species will use them as a feeding station. You might hook up to a Ladyfish too. There is plenty of bait in the water and it’s easy to get. A good cast net is all you need. Finger mullet or Menhaden are great baits as well as live shrimp. I usually try to get a few of each and see what the fish are in the mood for today. Believe it or not, fish can be mighty picky about what they eat. Hey just go fishing!
Dove season opens SATURDAY! Let the games begin folks. I know it’s going to be a good season when my wife is already starting to get aggitated with me. Then boys and girls the next saturday is the opening of bow season for DEER! Yippee ki yaa! I hope you read the new rules this year. We now can get extra doe tags. Check your shotguns and bows and get ready cause it’s my favorite time of the year. Hunting and fishing all in the same day,what more could a country boy want I ask. Well thats about it for this week so remember to take a kid with you and be safe.

Headhunter Outdoors Report 8-20-07

Hi folks Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. I don’t know how many ways I can say it, the fish are biting! I really hate to sound like a broken record folks. If you want Kings, Look from the beach on out. If you are after Black bass, hit the reefs and ledges. Grouper are your game, try the deep ledges and reefs. A few Tarpon are still around and little blues are everywhere. Some nice Specks are being caught in the surf and from the piers. The river is full of Trout as well. Not to long ago some lucky fellow jerked a huge flounder out of the waterway up towards the Hi-rise bridge. Yeah the big Flounder have moved in too. Redfish are everywhere and are of all different size classes too. Docks and points at creek mouths are good places too try. Folks here in the past few weeks I have been catching some small grouper inside the inlets while Redfishing. I’m still hearing that plenty of Sailfish and Mahi are just offshore as well. On another note, I got to take one of my favorite client’s fishing the other day and we had a blast. We didn’t catch but three Reds,but two of them were 26 and 27 inches respectively. Those fish were in a foot of water folks! This time of the year fish shallow people,thats where the big ones are.
Sept. 1st is rapidly approaching folks and I’m happy as a pig in mud. There’s just sometime about the smell of gun oil and gunpowder that satisfies my mind. Memories of past hunts with family and friends, some of whom are not with us anymore and those who are flood my head. Some folks may not understand but those of you who do feel the same thing on opening day. Euphoria and excitement! Passing on the traditions to the next generation and watching the results.
Okay enough of that Sept. 8th Deer season opens boys and girls. Are you ready? I am. Well thats it for this week folks. Be safe and take a kid fishing or hunting.
