Mackerel & Mullet action in Lemon Bay, Fl.

Posted on March 9th, 2012

[nggallery id=685]Yesterday my wife Barbara, our dog Mulligan and our friend Gordon ventured out about 3-miles into the Gulf of Mexico to try for some bottom fish and than to troll for mackerel.  Winds were gusting and we picked-up a lot of spray off the top of the waves and still fished on bottom for about 1-hr.  Fishing was slow and we just caught smaller species of sand perch, pin fish, jacks and grunts.  As the winds picked-up we decided to troll back with some cut-bait.  My wife Barbara landed the only mackerel of the trip just as we went through Stump Pass.

 

Today I had a chance to cast-net fish for some mullet and was blessed to catch 15-mullet with one throw.  Mullet have been scarce, but persistencey pays off.
