Out with Sal a new implant to Naples by way of Long Island. He had never caught a snook or tarpon and was very excited when I told him the bite was HOT! First order of the trip was to catch the rite bait....PILCHARDS. No bait - No fish. We were blessed with 400 beautiful Pilchards in two throws 7 bumpy miles offshore. It was a relief to catch the bait quickly and get back inshore.
Now to the good stuff. We fished only two of my hot spots. We had Tarpon all around the boat. We jumped 5 and boated two. We caught several snook 25 to 30 inches and 1 hog well over 40"! We filled in the blanks with 5 big trout over 25 inches and not only did Sal catch his first Snook and Tarpon he slammed!
Great stuff, Jesse!! As usual, you make it look easy.
I'm sure lookin forward to getting back down.
