Good morning, Taylor Hansen, piloted the boat Export to first place in the Citrus Tournament on Wednesday. The crew on board the Export won the tournament with 9 dolphin to 25#, 1 wahoo at 30#, a handful of kingfish and a tarpon at 120#. Congratulations to the top 4 places in the tournament, Taylor Hansen at first, Scott Lambeth at second, Mike Jacquin at third and Rusty Varn at fourth. Kadri Benton and Devin Moberg reported a catch of 3 grouper at 20#, 2 dolphin, 5 amberjack and a 45# cobia on live bait in 180 feet of water on Tuesday. There is plenty of live bait at the buoys and there are now some tarpon showing in our inlet and along the beaches. Chris Blackwell reported a catch of a tarpon around 100# at Boca Grande. Chris hooked the tarpon on a live greenie in 10 feet of water along the beach.
Inshore, anglers are reporting good catches of trout in the lagoon. We have heard from folks wading both sides of the lagoon some good results on trout and snook. Snook fishing in our inlet is real good now, anglers have been reporting some good catches on live bait.
Have a great day, Donald.
