Considering the fact that the wind has finally died down and I can give kiteboarding a relaxation for a little bit, I figured it would be very good to go see what’s heading on out in the Bay.
Left the dock at 10 and caught a few pinfish, the strategy remaining to go look for tripletail, cobia, and see if there had been any tarpon hanging back again.
Checked all of my common spots for cobia and TT, they had been really bare bones, only some little TT existing. The h2o was lifeless small which I believe was the perpetrator of the lack of exercise.
Went to an spot we have caught a tarpon or two in the past and it was bare bones as well. Followed a rip out into the middle of nowhere and uncovered a few tarpon hanging out. Just after seeking to figuring out the tide and wind, we established up on the to start with drift, a miscalculation experienced us off class a small little bit. During the drift we marked a few fish and saw a massive freejumper which was a very good indication.
Drift variety two began off with two pinfish beneath corks in the rod holders with bails open up. Although employing the trolling motor to deploy the baits even more back again, 1 of the pinfish got smoked. Flipped the bail and the tarpon promptly got tangled in the other line. Just after clearing the line we had been established to fight the fish. You could convey to this tarpon was cold as it only ripped off sixty yards and did not bounce until 10mins into the fight. Just after a small even though the fish was boat aspect and we known as it a working day so we could go try to eat some lunch.
Pretty slow out there for me, would like we could have place a cobia in the boat for some meat but oh well. Great to pull on a fish at the very least.
