Obama went to an elementary school and was speaking to the students. He asked if the students knew what a tragedy was. Little girl raised her hand and replied, if a family was driving down the road and were hit by a truck and died that would be a tragedy. Obama said no not quite that would be an accident. Little boy raised his hand and said if a school bus full of students ran off of a bridge.... Read More
I talked with the owner yesterday and he said he was still a few weeks from opening. A very kind gentleman and had time to talk to me even though his place was destroyed and his boys were rebuilding it as we spoke!
We headed out 90 miles from the marina friday morning about 6 am. The tuna were blowing up all around us. We picked up some small tuna then someone radioed that the tuna were thick out there and the crowd showed up. We moved to another rig to avoid the crowd and caught one right off the bat, then a nice skipjack on topwater. Caught another nice yellowfin soon after and the crowd from the other.... Read More

We had our fishing license checked July 1st out by hopedale. First time I have seen an officer on the water all year. I was wondering if it was coincidence or they were trying to catch people who's license had just expired on June 30. Just wondering how many people got checked within 3 days of old license going out. Don't get me wrong, I like seeing them out there and checking but not just when.... Read More
The howling west wind made for tuff fishing yesterday around morgan harbor but we managed 47 specks and one 40' red. All fish were caugt 3' under popcork on 3' natural or white gulp shrimp. Have not dumped specks out to clean yet, will post pics of them later.
Check out this blue bug that showed up at a boil last night. I know it has nothing to do with inshore fishing but thought it was just to cool not to share.[IMG]http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii213/kiflong7276/bluecraw.jpg[/IMG]
I have a johnson 200 ocean runner that will not charge the batteries while running. You can disconnect the batteries and the engine will run fine like the alternator is keeping it firing. Any help would be appreciated.
We had a great trip out of sweetwater this weekend. The specks and reds were biting good if you could find them. We had 3 boats there and the one that fished stone island smoked them. Fish were caught on plastics under PC or just big lead head bounced off bottom, most of the fish were caught 2'under PC with live shrimp. They were even biting dead shrimp when we would run out. The hotspots were.... Read More
I got this ole big boy monday morning about 915. He had a 12.25' beard, 1.25' spurs and weighed 20 lb 13 oz.! By far the biggest south ms turkey I have seen.[IMG]http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii213/kiflong7276/pinespur.jpg[/IMG]
Went fishing out of la france thurs and fri and had little luck. Trialered around to Cindys because of the good delacroix reports. Their crew is the most helpful I have ever seen. They put your ice in the coolers,put bait in the boat and then put you in and take you out! They showed us which bays to fish and what plastics to use and how deep. We did not kill them but ended up putting 20 trout.... Read More
