Nearshore Grouper and Snapper Seminar

NIce Fall Nearshore GrouperThis Thursday, October 6th, at 6:30PM, I will be giving a seminar on Near Shore Grouper and Snapper Fishing at West Marine in Clearwater.  Store address is 1721 Gulf to Bay Boulevard / Clearwater, Florida 33755.  With cooler weather approaching, these fish should be getting closer to the beaches by the day.  By October, legal grouper are often quite available inside of ten miles and sometimes are just a mile or two out.  With a little luck, we'll also get a good push of mangrove snapper into our area this year as well.  Topics discussed will include tackle required, tactics used as well as the types of structure where these fish can be found.  Remember to bring a picture of  your latest"best catch" so that you can be entered into the drawing for the West Marine Gift Card.  As always, pizza and drinks will be available at the seminar.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Split Cost Fishing Charters

Jumbo Redfish cuaght off of Clearwater beachI recently sent out an email regarding the opportunity to split a fishing charter with another angler.  Although someone has already signed up for this, I received numerous other requests for split fishing charters on different days.  Since the response was so strong, I thought it might make sense to send out a follow up email offering up some other options.  So here it is.  There are three very good fishing days left during the last week in September (strong tides)...the 26th, 28th and 30th.  If you are still interested in splitting a charter with someone, let me know which of these days you would be interested in and I'll see if I can get you paired up.  Also, if you only want to fish a certain number of hours (4,6 or 8) please specify.  Again, you can bring one aditional person for $25 more than the split cost of the charter.  For example, a 6 hour trip is $500 so, it would cost you $250 to go alone or $275 for you and a friend.  If you have an interest in fishing on one of these days, just let me know.  Thanks

Seminar - Rigging an Inshore Fishing Boat

This Thursday Evening, September 1st, at West Marine in Clearwater, I will be giving a seminar on Rigging an Inshore Fishing Boat. Start time will be at 6:30PM and, as always, West Marine will be supplying free pizza and drinks, as well as a gift certificate.  Bring a picture of your most recent "best catch" to qualify for the gift certificate. Having proper tackle, tools and accessories is critical to a good day on the water. Many little things can greatly improve your fishing experience.  Having spent over 20 years on the water in Florida, my boat is pretty thoroughly equipped and, at the close of the seminar, you may well find that there is something that you want to put on your boat before your next trip.  By the same token, if any of you out there have items on your boats that you feel are both unique and highly useful, please bring your thoughts to the seminar so we all might benefit.  See you Thursday.
