Dangerous Father’s Day Snake Head Fishing 6/20/2010

Bass caught following school of baby snakehead and their parents

Ahhhhh Father Day, I was suffering from early mental anguish from the dementia of a twenty five lb snook and several large tarpons at Biscayne Bay Saturday evening with Sponge Bob; we caught a heck of a lot of five lb plus ladyfish to make up the snafu but that did not rub the sore ego away.

  I rise at six am to beat the heat and went to Margate hopefully chase away the adrenaline soreness and hit a few snake head holes I knew would produce well in this swelling heat.  I arrived in the sub par strip mall with a large hidden bank embankment on South-gate Blvd and went on top of it at half past seven am, to my chagrin a pack of half dozen young teenager fathers and their little scions out fishing with their freshly minted rod and reel that have never taste dirty water until this Father’s Day crack of dawn, have invaded my comfort zone.  It was the most dangerous combat fishing I have seen in a long time, not since the last time I went out with Dondel and nearly got hit in the forehead by Dondel ballistic scum frog.
  To bad BFF don’t have a Father Day’s fishing clinic because these fathers with more tattoos than a Marine Division were hooking the live shiner the wrong way through the head. The skinhead honcho father with the “I love you Mommy & Nazi Swastika” tattoos were teaching the kids to cross line throwing and such a ruckus that even the traditional ducks and avian that keep the bank well endow in a rich layer of glazing chocolate dropping and make it wonderfully slippery to skate down the embankment to the snake head holes, scuttle to the safety of the deserted Southgate Blvd as they stretch their neck glaring in horror at the genetic misfits invading their solace on this Sunday Father’s Day. ……………….

Singer Island 6/20

Good monday anglers!! hope everyone had a great weekend. Great weekend yet again on singer the man made reef has been producing. Sizes are up and tarpon are moving in.

Got to the my buddies house at 1130.  Tide was dead low so we planned on catching the incoming tide in the comming hours. We headed down to the beach and got set up. Wind was maybe 5 knots, water temp was bathtub and color was crystal clear.

 Curtis got to work with the chum bag and we were fishing. I decided to set up on the rocks like the week prior, I was not disapointed catching my limit on Mangrove Snapper in about an hour,all ranging in size of 12-14 inches.

I decided to join Curtis and Joel and fish with some whole sardines on a tripple hook rig on the reef. I set up and walked back to the base. no sooner did I put it in the rod holder to grab a drink it gets hit! Grabbed the pole and reeled her in. A nice size snapper but to small for regulations.

She went back to fight another day. Later in the day another Keeper was caught.

After releasing the Snapper we stayed with the whole sardines. after catching a few little snappers, we notice Joels pole doing a lil shimmy. he grabs it and BAM fish on. He gets it threw the reef and its a nice little cuda.

She was released as well.

All in all a Good day on the Island, My advice for a good day is bring the family, a few rods and a picnic basket and let nature do the rest…….A bucket of shrimp will help

Tackle.

4/0 hooks with live shrimp, 1 oz weight on fish finder rig. have a tight line as soon as it hits the water or you will not feel them “snap” your bait off.  Work the reef and be prepared to have fun

Bait.

Live Shrimp and sardines
