Caught lots of fish! Everything we tried worked today; it was that type of day!
First, we started off by throwing jigs and catching lots and lots of lady fish, trout and spanish mackerel on the bayside of Captiva, near South Seas Resort.
The fish were thick and feeding aggressively. We caught fish every cast.
We moved and fished the beach side of North Captiva, looking for some bigger trout and flounder.
We had plenty of fish for dinner so we decided to go for something even bigger.
There were only a few tarpon around the beach so we decided not to bother with tarpon today and headed 6-7 miles offshore to break up the usual routine and do something different.
We fished over a structure in 36 feet of water and again caught lots of nice spanish mackerel and blue runners.
I dropped a blue runner on a tarpon rod and we caught a 19 lb. kingfish (king mackerel) which fought really hard. We also lost a giant goliath grouper that took us into the wreck.
Another great day of fishing off Sanibel & Captiva.
Fair winds and following seas,
