Bimini Has Hot Action

Report Date: June 12, 2005

Can you find us now? We have been to Germany and the Bahamas since our last report. Germany was great, but no fishing.

While I was gone, Capt. Josh produced 2 big tarpon and a cobia for our guest on his one evening trip.

On my first trip after Germany we caught 10 species? of fish. We caught a 20 pound king and a cero mackerel. Then we caught a sailfish. The next spot produced 3 yellowtail snapper, ? mutton snapper, a black grouper, a big rainbow runner and a big yellow jack. Finally we made a drift out deep and caught a dolphin fish and small tuna. It was a very interesting day.

We went to Bimini with Ron and Jina Crowder as well as John Nilson and Capt. Allan Engel. We were there from Wednesday till Sunday. With a tropical storm passing by we had plenty of wind and rain. Through it all we caught some very nice fish.

When all was tallied, we had several cero mackerel to 16 pounds. That is world record size. We had 4 mutton snapper to 10 pounds, a bunch of gray snapper from 3 to 4.5 pounds, 4 king mackerel, piles of yellowtail snapper, a mess of big blue runners and to many ocean tally. The biggest were, amberjack of 39, 42 and 42 pounds. The black grouper were 21, 19, 14, 11 and 23 pounds. We only caught a few barracuda and sharks this trip.

In the 22 boat tournament we were fishing, we won top male angler, top female angler, top amberjack, top gray snapper and top cero mackerel.

It is back to Bimini tomorrow. We have plenty of days available in July and August, so let?s go fishing. E-mail .
