my ist saltwater post

Postby fishy1 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 7:14 pm

finally got to go fishing in ocean water today fishing with good friend kevin . we headed north to fish a public dock with only 4 fow in indian river. kevin put on cut mullets i put on cut mullet and clam. didnt take long for kevin to get and catch a small catfish. so i decided to take weight off and hang bait over dock. in about 15 minutes bait started busted water all around us . then suddenly my 12 foot surf rod jerked down violently and big fish on but not for long. took the clam which was on the top hook fished another 10 minutes and left as we had a visit to make. fished 1 hour but got to check out alot of public areas for us to fish. talked to chawk and explained what the fish did after hooked and he said mostly likely it was bull red fish. cant wait to back down to river or ocean beach.

3/24/2020 went back again this morning but bought another rod this this time a 7 foot spinning rod i set up with a slider bead set up and a cut mullet. surf rod i had squid on. caught 2 nice catfish on the squid and a spanish mackeral on the mullet. then at 11 am my line on the spinning rod took off like no tommorrow closed the bail after it got out about 200 feet set the hook really hard it busted water an shook off. spinning rod doesnt have enough back bone for a fish that far out . couldnt see what it was . got a pic of the beautiful ocean catfish and a dolphin swimming in front of me.ImageImage

3/31/2020 fishing has improved for me since in started experimenting and moving around . since the beaches are closed and state parks closed the best fishing is not there for me and i dont have a boat but im making the best of it inland a little where i can fish. weather is 80,s every day all fisherman are keeping distance from each other and its working out great. i caught my ist mangrove snapper yesterday along with some jacks mackeral and others. day before i even caught a sea robin. where im fishing now there are rod holders in the ground and put my rod in and just sit and wait for runs. i have seen manatees sting rays lots of dolphins sharks tarpons you name it i have seen in here. lost some big fish missed some just so much fun. cant go home yet and i miss shore fishing for salmon which is best this time of year but my health is better here and dont risk my family coming back to soon with the corinavirus although i miss them . i am lucky here staying with my cousin also im minutes from ocean waters with great fishing and i can tell you this the fisherman here are very friendly and helpful here to just like up home. i hope everyone stays safe up there and keep on fishing but please be careful this virus is no joke.
