The FWC apparently has increased their boardings significantly as a result of pressure from the Feds. Can't wait to get President Zero out on Jan 20th.

Watch the tides at the inlet, seems like more hook ups at the tide turns. And fish toward the south jetty out behind the breakers. Or fish north of the north jetty at the point. Always have pretty good success there. I fish live blue crabs or live Jumbo shrimp.

its refreshing to see someone give actual advice about where to fish and how to do it.. sharing the knowledge online or face to face seems to be taboo these days.

Not many of us have the time or the $ to fish all the spots on all the tides/moon phases with all the gear to figure out what works. I for one hate getting skunked and "wasting" a day when people Im fishing with want results...

on that note, if any of you want advice on how to catch catfish I seem to be your guy lol

Yeah, those are the correct spots and the last bit of outgoing is usually the ticket. It was a little too sporty that day to fish tips of the jetty(s).

True, I don't discriminate...... I catch my fair share of catfish and the kids have fun!

When it's too sporty at the inlet, I hit the bridges. Live Jumbo shrimp and fiddler crabs. Sheepshead and snook. Every now and then a nice tarpon. If nothing else, there are a ton of jacks that move through there.

if you can find smaller livebaits like mud minnows, the concrete marker at the end of the coast guard station holds mangrove snapper year round

I know Rhonda Gale went out with Dookie and BlueChip. According to Dookie, they caught and released 837,963 elusive Atlantic Red Snapper on Monday. One of them may chime in.

Apparently the clearly marked "warning shoaling" signage wasn't clear enough for this Delaware registered boater. This was on the east shoal directly across the lighthouse. Beautiful well kept boat by the looks of it too. It's a total loss. Completely submerged at high tide and at low tide she looked sucked down hard in the sand with damage to her port side running gear...

It happened sometime between Dec. 27 and Dec. 31. I was out late on the 27th and early on the 31st. People from the beach were observed stripping stuff off the boat on Jan 1st. Boat looked to be pretty pristine.

Yeah, I have to literally throw them overboard when I get near the island They're such "regulars" that they literally know when we're coming around the bend to the island. When we're boat riding the dogs will chill out and usually either sit next to me on the leaning post or lay down near the back of the boat. But as soon as I get within eye sight of the island, both dogs get all excited and start bouncing around. If I don't toss them overboard, they will jump themselves and thats too dangerous with spinning props. One time, my idiot dog "Bones", decided to jump off the engine bracket and I didn't even realize he was there. The motor almost got him. Since that day, I toss them overboard first and then worry about anchoring or getting tied up to my buddies boat.
