Overall the fishing was good last week. I was able to get out and fish for fun for two days with long time friend Capt RJ Hagewood. We were all over the place doing some tournament pre-fishing. We both had different tournaments later in the week. The bait was good every day this week and stayed alive all day long. In our travels, we were able to find fish almost everywhere we went. They weren’t always the target species but we had a lot of action. Both days we were able to catch some really big healthy snook and redfish.
I had a charter Thursday with really low water and a tough tide. We were able to catch some healthy snook and snapper. We spent a lot of time running around trying to find a bite. Friday I was chartered for a corporate fishing tournament, bait was not easy this morning. Pick up was at Tarpon Lodge at 8am with a start time at 9am. At 930 it was determined that my guest were not going to make it, so I called it a day and went home to do some maintenance on the boat.
