November Catches

Report Date: November 8, 2004

Well we ended October with a bang and November is off and running. Our last trip of October was with some guys from TR-1 auto pilots. We left the dock after 7 and were tied up at 11:45 with two swordfish releases.

The Gladiators released two swords 10/29/4

The first trip of November was in pursuit of light tackle casting action. We got a few spanish and cero mackerel, king mackerel and assorted jacks on plug and spin. The biggest challenge was several Bermuda chubs on fly. Don?t laugh, they fight like crazy and are challenging to get the strike. We fished the bay one night and caught 3 small tarpon

Light tackle plus smaller tarpon equal big fun

, 2 ribbon fish and a big ladyfish. Had a lot of strikes, but they were tough to hook. Friday and Saturday each resulted in a couple sailfish catches. We had a couple dolphin and a nice grouper to top off Friday. A couple kings topped off Saturdays sailfish action. Sunday night produced 6 tarpon strikes along the beach, but only one fish around 80 pounds got along side the boat for pictures.

We are rapidly approaching the tournament season. For the first time in years we have openings to take on new teams to fish these events. The Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tour. is November 19-21 (booked). A new tournament takes place in Miami December 11th and 12th. Cocoplum Sailfish is January 14-16. The Mayor?s Cup is January 29 and 30.
