Good Morning, I finally have received a few fishing reports. One from the Nelsheen offshore and one from Capt. Scott Crippen inshore.
First, the offshore report, from the Nelsheen. Brendan Burke whom was running the boat in my absents yesterday told me they caught a bunch of very small dolphin. Some of the smallest hes ever seen. In fact they were so small they saw a blue marlin feeding on them. The marlin was showering them like a dolphin showers flying fish. They made a turn on the marlin but never gained his attention. Brendan also said that the water was cold and green most everywhere he went. He was forced to fish in five hundred feet of water most of the day to stay in warmer clean water. On top of having to fish way offshore it was also very rough. He compared it to fishing in the Pelican Yacht Club tournament a few years ago.
Now the inshore report, Capt. Scott Crippen fished for snook and redfish yesterday and hit a home run. He told me that the fishing was great! They had big snook and over sized redfish on the end of their line most of the day. He also said they lost a few monster snook, one in particular that was close in size to one he caught last year that weighed near thirty pounds! The fish ran off a hundred yards of line and pulled the hook. All of his fishing yesterday was done with live bait, and for the most part was done way down south in the river.
Good Luck this weekend!
