Saltwater fishing!!!

Postby Dogman » Wed May 11, 2005 4:36 pm

How many guys fish the big salty,Atlantic or Pacific.What are your targets?
Around here I'd have to say that the all around champ would be the Striper.Bluefish a close second.Man what a mouth full of teeth those blues
have,make short work of a plug in a hurry. :eek:

Plenty more fish to chase but those are the mainstays :thumbsup:

My dad is leaving tomorrow around noon to head down to the Florida Keys for a week. One of his buddies has family down there with ocean access. They go out on 24' Contenders, with twin 250's. Last year they went out about 30 miles in that boat. There targeted species is Mahi, but they take what they can get. Wish I could go, it sounds like a blast.

My dad got back in town this past weekend from his trip to the Keys. They caught between 30 and 40 dolphin a day. The biggest was about 20lbs. The weather was great after the first day when Arlene went through.

Yeah I wish I could go, but they already had 5 guys on a 24' boat and they didn't want to have to rent one again like they did last year.

The Bluefish are running good now.Nothing like watching bait trying to fly to get away from the choppers of a school of blues!
Fast action when you get into a feeding frenzy.
Someday I'm going to try them with a flyrod but first I need to get some new leaders that will hold up to them. :help:

Salt water fishing

Postby Dep666 » Wed Sep 21, 2005 9:53 pm

Couple of years ago I went to Cabo San Lucas on my Honeymoon. Caught the biggest Dorado Ive ever seen (70 pounds) and two striped marlin. What a day. Ive fished for sailfish in Islamorada Fla, and in Laguaria Venezuela. The fishing in Venezuela was a little disappointing. I probably had a S%$# guide. Isamorada was awesome. Sails and big smoker kings.....Now I fish for Salmon (LakeOntario kings) and Muskies. If anyone can give me directions I'll post a few pics......Thanks ...Matt

Saltwater Fishing is the best kinda of fishing u can do. Here in Texas got 2 go 2 the Gulf of Mexico and go to the Snapper Banks catch Red Snapper all day long.

Plus you can Hunt all morning and it warm enough to fish the afternoon away. Cant go wrong

i will go for anything that swims... fishing in the chesapeake bay we start with stripers for the spring season, then generally go for flounder, spadefish and big croaker... will throw some blues in there along with them big yellowbellies in the fall... once it gets cool enough the puppy drum come in the river which is always fun as well.. so definetly a mixed bag

Its always duck season, there is just a long break from february to september.
