Singer Island 6/6

Great weekend out on Singer island!  It was a hot one out there on Sunday, water color was clear, water temp was about 75 degrees. I’d say 5 knot current going North, wind was  about 8 knots blowing North West. PLENTY of bait. Jacks running just a casts nets throw from shore with greenies,mullet and silversides residing on the intracoastal side.

The morning started off with nice action with Mutton Snapper and some Grovers along the rocks. We perched up on a submerged rock and got started. Bait of choice was live shrimp. We released all snappers that were caught to fight another day.

Giant Golden Arowana Snakehead 6/5/2010

Catching Burmese python for Giant Snake bait

10lb Golden Dragon nearly bite safeman left thumb off

It was seven AM on a nice lazy Saturday morning in Boca, so peaceful one could visualize a few cows walking across the street to my house for a milking.  Ah, all the snowbirds have escaped up north. After helping a buddy in Parkland retrofit his McMansion by half past noon,  I decide to call up my snake head brother Dependable Dondel to see what’s aching.   The minute I told him about my super secret spot for Golden Arowana Snake, Dondel was calling his traffic lawyer.  I arrived at the spot a few stone throws from Parkland at two PM and did not see a soul but me and snake head heaven.  Fifteen minutes into the oppressive humid thunderstorms I have already sweated two mountain dews and missed five bites with a white scum.  Half past two I switched to a black red scum and I hooked into a ten pound beauty that was tedious to land and worrying about when a sprite was going to kiss me since I was holding a long all aluminum landing net.  Dondel called and said he is at the school and did not see me while I was unhooking the Golden Dragon?

Broward – Lauderdale-by-the-sea, day break Sunday Morning

As the sun came up you could see small pods of bait around, breaking water every few minutes, got me going so I grabbed a rod and headed out of a few minutes.

As I got out and made a few casts, I started to get big goggle eyes, I was throwing a small xrap, olive green. Well after 6 or so throws and 6 Goggle eyes later I get a couple of blue runners, then bam I am on a fish that was about 3 feet long and silver because I saw it hit the lure and break water, then  take off.  I fight it for a good 5 minutes and slice it cuts me  “BUMMER”  not sure what it was , I do know, but  it fought well.

I look over and there are two tarpon sitting under me, one of them is 80lbs maybe 100lbs it looked to be a solid 6 to 7 foot.  Hum I wonder how long had they had been there?

West Coast is now online

Macks are all over the beaches early in the morning until about midday.  Live greenies freelined or under a popping cork work best.  Occasionally Bonito are on the beaches in small numbers. Larger numbers are just off shore 1 mile or less.  Afternoon storms are helping to keep the bait near shore and tightly packed around structure, this makes them easy to catch on sabiki rigs right now.  Pompanos are also on the beaches.  Sand fleas and small crabs are your best bet for these.

As this week passed the fishing was fair in the Broward Area

Around Fort Lauderdale and Lauderdale by the sea, we found Shrimp still passing with the Se winds early in the week and for this time of year a good amount. The Tarpon Bite has picked up and have seen a couple caught each day on Anglins Fishing Pier, They are also getting Yellowtails Snapper, Blue Runners and Mackerel every day. Yesterday Thurdays they had a Porgy, Yellowtail snappers, and Mackerel and a lone Pompano GO FIGURE.

Fort Lauderdale Beach has produced a few Permit this week, you need to fish from 5am to 9am that is the best time for the bite, you will see fisherman fishing and that willlet you know yo are at the right place, about a 1/4 of a mile North of Sunrise Blvd on A1a, Use fresh dead Crab with a little stink to them. Give it a few shots and I would not be surprised if you got a nice one, also try lobbing out a large Mullet head for a Tarpon .

Water has a very small chop, North Current and Clear, A great wind allnight not to hard but enough to give it some current, some Mangrove Snappers were caught through the night.

This New Front end

If you are reading this than you have had an opportunity to give me input and I do appreciate it.

I will be making a splash page for the main index of Boatless Fishing and it will then take you here to the Blog.

Also I am not sure of the Cyber News Name so if you have Ideas on a Name let me hear them.

As you can see I have added a New page area Regs and Id’s this is for Newbies and anyone that wants a quick link to pertinent Florida State Info.
On the Bottom I have place a Rss Feed that comes from FWC it will list posts from Florida’s 5 regions and other news and new proposed changes to laws and up coming Meetings, I have at this time included 8 different Feeds to there so as they put them out it will change instantly.

Look close for any broken linkage or I also have targeted all links to open in another window, so if you see this not working, take note and let me know.

I am open to ideas so let them fly my way.

Thanks in Advance
