Sharks Snook and More

Report Date: August 5, 2012

On July 31st the Lapnow family had a great morning of fishing. Gabriel, Jessica and Christian caught pairs of amberjacks, barracudas, kingfish and big porgys. That plus 10 bonito and a big blue runner filled their morning.

Gary thought Gabbi was hungry

Wednesday August 1st the Kelly men caught their share. They caught 8 mahi, 2 spinner sharks, a mutton, 4 huge porgy, 10 bonito, a yellow jack, and a barracuda. The catch of the day was Johnís first bonito on fly. I should add that he tied his own fly.

Thursday was crazy as we ended up running 3 trips. First we fished with Hans and his kids. They caught 3 amberjacks, 3 almaco jacks, a tile fish, 5 rose porgy and a bonito.

Alison and Jen caught 4 sharks and more

The next Thursday trip was with Alison and Jen. They requested sharks and they caught a lot more. They caught 2 spinner sharks, a silky shark, a hammerhead shark, a wahoo, a big barracuda, an amberjack and a bonito.

Finally We took Henry and his family fishing for a little while. On the first bait Henry caught a snook of over 20 pounds. His dad added a barracuda and a tile fish. Little brother Gordon caught a bunch of blue runners along with Henry.

Friday we tried to fish in the afternoon, but the weatherman wasnít having much of that. We did catch a couple almaco jacks and a amberjack before the rain and lightning called the game.

August is cubera snapper month, snook should stay good, spinner sharks provide great big game action and last year August was great for mahi.
