My personal best muskie....Lake of the Woods 2006. While I caught it on a large spinner bait, I tied up an orange streamer to use as a trailer....muskies love em ......well, they love them occasionally.

My little girl was all about wanting to go fishing this past weekend. So we did some bank fishing under a shade tree with crickets Saturday. My middle son was more interested in what he could catch in the long handled shrimp net. We found a handful of handful sized gills and she wanted to come back with the boat. So Sunday we went back for a couple hours and caught several more good ones, along with all the hard pulling cichlids she could handle. We had a blast.

Finally had some calm winds and was able to get out on the Big O. I've been itching to go find some specks. Weather was beautiful and the company of my son and dad was even better. My son was kicking our but to start with. We brought home 23 that were over the 10in. minimum. Caught them on both jigs and minnows. It was a great half day.

Baby goliath grouper, around 25lbs - lots and lots of these around now in the rivers that drain out of the Everglades into the salt.  They'll attack and eat anything they can get.... I have to make sure my anglers are holding onto their rods since the drags are set at "exterminate"...

We consider them to be "babies" until they hit around fifty pounds - a ten pounder will take you to school - the bigger babies are pretty hard to land since they love to hang out around downed trees and river corners with strong currents...

Nice fatties there. I’ll be heading to Florida in another month. Gulf coast, can I catch red fish then?

Believe Venice was north of the hurricane strike zone… but this most recent cold (a killing cold for snook and other temperature sensitive fish like tarpon ) will have some effect but reds aren’t very temperature sensitive at all…

 

If it were me I’d get on the phone with local shops (Mr CB’s and others ) and talk to them. I’m nearly 300 miles to the south…
