Reel Adventure Charters Florida Report 1-21-10 LOT’s of pics

January 21st, 2010 by Capt. Matt Wirt | Comments Off

Hello everyone! I hope everyone made it through the brutal cold snap we had. It has finally gotten back to normal temps here in Florida and our Pine island fishing is getting back to normal. Lots of our fish had a tough time during the cold snap, but alot of them made it. Check out the awesome snook pics in our canal below. We even caught a few LARGE snook.

Offshore is doing well with the Goliath Grouper. The AJ’s, sharks and cobia should be back very soon with the rising water temps.

During the cold weather I shot some new fly tying vidoes. Click here to check them out: http://saltwaterflytying.blogspot.com/

 The Scientific Anglers 8wt 9? 2 piece NEW rods sold out quick. I sold 21 that I was able to get. I have 4 left, just email or call to get the remaining few that I have not gotten checks for… so here is your last chance to jump in and get one or two. First ones to get a check to me gets them. Can ship if needed! They are only $45 each and shipping is $15 if needed.

We are getting pretty full with charters but still have plenty of good dates left, if you want to come down to Florida for some great fishing just give me a call.

Here are this weeks pics enjoy!

More BIG Grouper, Spanish, Bluefish, etc. 1-3-10 Reel Adventure

January 3rd, 2010 by Capt. Matt Wirt | Comments Off

Happy new years to everyone! I just wanted to post up a quick report because the Pine Island fishing has been on fire when the wind works in our favor. I have gotten LOT’S of questions on the Goliath Grouper trips. The first one is YES they are always there! No you cant keep them, they are federally protected! We may or may not catch a keeper sized grouper and there is a good possibility you will get a cobia or an amberjack. But please be aware we are Goliath Grouper fishing, smaller bottom fish are generally not hanging around where the Goliath’s are….for good reason!

Inshore has been picky. Lots of temp changes on the flats. The fish are there but it has not been a easy bite. Some days we wear them out the next they wont even take a live shrimp much less a fly. This should settle down after the fronts blow by.

On a side note those that purchased a fly rod from me on the fly rod deal need to make sure you get your checks out to me ASAP. I am waiting on a check from 5 people. I also still have 2 rods left for sale.

Starting with off shore pics..

Rod abuse!

This one was bigger than  me. I estimate it @ 250 lbs. This one and the big one from last report are hard to estimate. I saw on youtube where other capts. estimate the same size fish around 400 lbs. I just know its big! I also will have a youtube video up soon. I have the footage, just need to edit it out.

Just a little short!

brokrod.jpg

I need a bigger stick. This was a 40 to 80lb rod I made. I am making an unlimited class rod this week. I can only imagine the size of the grouper that broke it. I have the rod breaking on video.

Inshore…..
