The waters are full of life off the shores of Capt Hiram's. Spring is here and with spring comes Cobia, Dolphin and Wahoo. Pods of bait are all over the place, from just off the beaches to the offshore reefs.
If your looking for Cobia, first try the beach. Look for Rays; the Cobia will be swimming with the Rays or just under them. You will also find them on the offshore reefs. If you're bottom fishing the reefs, Cobia will follow hooked fish up to the surface; be sure to have a rod and a bait ready when they come up to the boat.
Fishing for the Dolphin; look for color changes, rips and weed-lines. And keep an eye on those birds, they can lead you right to the fish.
Congratulations go out to Capt Gus Brugger and Gary Beach! Gary Beach, the new chef at Captain Hirams Resort, spent his first afternoon away from the kitchen fishing with Capt Hirams owner Tom Collins aboard the Pattern Setter with Capt. Gus Brugger. This 31" (79cm) Gator Seatrout weighed 10.25lbs and will be submitted for an IGFA all tackle length record. It hit a D.O.A. 4" C.A.L. and was released to fight another day.
AND the fish keep showing up on our dock! Capt Terry Wildey and The Big Easy delivered this catch on Saturday March 16th! We do have the best Capt's and Charters around! Check them all out on our Fishing Page
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the SISA 40th Annual 2012 Spring Fling Tournament, April 28th (Capt's Meeting on April 27th) always a great time!
That's all for now.... Capt Michael Barkle
