Happy Holidays to all!

Many have winterized the boat already! Some of the best fishing can be found during this time of the year! The run to the fish is longer but the results are rewarding!

Nearer to shore try a bottom trip for Black Bass! Easy to catch and great table fare! 10 to 20 mile range live bottom and small ledges are best bets! Cut bait and squid will do the trick. 2 hook bottom rig is all you need.

30 to 40 Mile range – Grouper are thick! Look for ledges with good marks of fish. Anchor up and use cigar minnows, squid, cut bait or vertical jig! Move around until you locate the fish!

40 Mile range and near the tower KINGS!!! Know your limit and I suggest only keeping the bigger fish grap smaller fish by tail and release! Slow troll dead bait and have great action. Try some light spinning gear! 10# spinning gear with 20# plus king is a great fight! You will loose some fish but what sport! Be sure to stay out of the commerical boats way they are fast trolling.

Gulf Stream – Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi and Sailfish all caught is last 2 weeks! My last trip 2 weeks ago had sailfish and real nice wahoos! missed a number of fish that we felt were small tuna or more sails! Consult water temp cahrts find the temp breaks the closer to the bottom break the better!

Keep on fishing! Less boats and great potential.

Boats Shows in January! I will be at Greensboro January 4-6th. Seminars and working the Bug- Em- Bait booth. January 11-13th in Raliegh doing the same and January 25-27th in Richmond, VA! Stop by and see me or take in a seminar!

Hope to see all come 2008. Let’s go fishing! I will continue to update my web site all winter!
