I ventured out again today with Tom Humphrey & we decided to start fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, but strong winds only allowed us to fish about :45 min before we had to leave due to a lack of boat control. We did manage to land a few fish, but headed closer to shore to see if the Spanish Mackerel were still feeding on the shallower reefs.
To try and locate feeding schools of mackerel we again started trolling at 4-6 mph using Blue Fox and Luhr Jensen Spoons with Terminator Titanium wire leaders. To our pleasant surprise, the mackerel were there in good numbers even in the wind and we caught about a dozen fish before heading back home to another fresh grilled fish dinner.
For the mackerelagain we fished the Rapala Magnum series Baja 4-piece saltwater spinning rod matched with the largeRapala Xi spinnig reel and loaded with Sufix 832, 20 lb. test line and Terminator Titanium leader.
We ran out of time to fish for the Spotted Sea Trout & Redfish but I hope to give them a go tomorrow.
