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


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

Anglins Fishing Pier Highlights from our Live Video feed 06/16/2010

The first fish on was a Snook, Dave Wimberley hooks it straight up and down took him a second to get the head up, but then he went to hand line him up quick to get a quick release and it frayed him off.

Well we only had to Tarpon Hook ups this evening, Jose hooked up first and Austin next, for a few second it was a double hook up, then Jose pulled the hook on his and Austin went inshore to fight his and lost it on the Bouy by the middle house of the Pier.

Boca Raton Inlet fishin’

For the past three or so weeks, the Boca Raton inlet has been really loaded with bait. For the most part, the majority of the bait has been pilchards, along with cigar minnows, sardines, greenies, and the occasional google eye.

Attracted to the abundance of bait, tarpon have been stacking up all over the  inlet, along with some snook. Besides the tarpon and snook, some small mangrove snapper and some fierce barracudas having been making their appareances. Expect the snapper bite to pick up real soon.

An inlet regular caught this beautiful snook Monday evening:
I headed out this evening for a quick trip to see what I can hook up to from around 6:00 -8:00 PM. Bait was hard  to find at the start, but it steadily picked up and by the time I left everyone could catch bait with ease. As I arrived to the inlet, another inlet regular was releasing probably a slot snook, of course released though. Instead of going to the end of jetty, I fished around the middle of the inlet on the south side. Although nothing landed, I had one nice run on a flat lined pilchard, but whether it be a cuda or tarpon, it escaped.

Just a few pics:
