Spring Break Trips

Well we were very blessed this week with good weather. Every year during Spring Break we seem to get blown off the water with 25-35 mph winds, but all past week the winds were good. We did have a couple of days of stiff wind, but we were able to fish every day. My brother and I really had very productive days on the water. Every trip produced over 25-75 fish caught and our customers were very pleased. These trips are great for the kids and families just wanting to catch some fish. We caught red fish, sheep head, puppy drum, bull drum, whiting, sand trout and gulf trout. Some clients went home with 5 gallon baggies full of fillets, while others didn't keep a fish. The beauty of these trips are people catch a lot fish and have a great time. I will still be offering these trips all of April and the way it is looking we will start targeting speckled trout in about 2 weeks. There have been some specks being caught around the bay system lately and it looks like this year is going to be a great one for speckled trout. Even though we caught a lot of quality trout last year, we caught more juvenile trout (14-16 in.) trout last year than we have in many years. Good news is those trout will be good quality 17-20 inch trout this year. Well this blog is now ranked on the Search Engines so hopefully I will start getting some responses from some of my readers. I have checked the views on this site and it is over 300 so if you feel like leaving a comment please do. Look for a post in about a week.

  1. Capt. Alan,
    Really like the blog - good job! Just found it and still looking it over. Will have to save as one of my favorites. Diffently will be watching you blog each week and commenting as the 2011 season gets into full swing. You and your brother have always taken care of me and my family on our trips - looking forward to our next adventure...

  2. Thanks John, really appreciate the reply. I created this blog for people like you and anyone that likes fishing and the outdoors. Hope to hear from you again and spread the word to your friends and fishing buddies. Thanks Capt. Alan

  3. Sounds like a great trip. Seems like with the economy my time has been so tied up with my business Ablaze Home Improvement Siding that I haven't had the time for fun lately.
    I just followed you and I just started my new blog and would appreciate you coming by and follow. Maybe we can keep up with what each is doing. Thanks.
