Winter 2020 – Fishing with Smokin’ Hooks

Posted January 24, 2020

This past week has been phenomenal. Today on an 8 hour trip we ran a total of only 12 miles and were catching fish all day. So many that FWC came by at the dock to check us out!

Left the docks at 8 from Wiggins Pass and journeyed out after a wicked cold front with some variable seas. The forecast called for the seas to lay down by midday so Captain and crew were optimistic. Within fifteen minutes of anchoring down we landed a nice King Mackeral and had a Triggerfish on board. The day proved fruitful with Kings, Snapper, Spanish Mackeral hooking up with our lines. The rest of the weeks been active, even yesterday with a cold front and backwater fishing we hooked up to a nice Redfish and some good keepers.
