10/13/11 Flat calm seas.. gorgeous! Nice permit and red!

Capt. Rick Stanczyk and Capt. Mike Bassett went out for a day of fun fishing themselves today on 10/13/11.  The islamorada fishing guides went and caught some bait very early in the morning - pilchards and pinfish.  They headed back to the flamingo/everglades area.  Hit a few islands and channels back there, not too much except snappers today, a few jacks.  Did catch one nice black drum.  We ran further down the cape area and hit a couple other spots.  Saw some tarpon rolling and busting, though they didn't want our bait they were after the mullets.  We hit a gulf spot and as the tide died some big schools of permit showed themselves!  Unfortunately we had no crabs, though we had a bunch of shrimp (mostly dead at this point!)  Rick got one to eat a few shrimp chunks luckily and caught this nice one!  We took off after that and hit some shorelines and a couple creeks.  Not much luck still, did catch one red out of one of the creeks, along with some jacks and catfish.  Oh well the permit made the day, and it was gorgeous scenery!!!  Come on down there can still be some quality fish caught while islamorada fishing charters are happening!

Capt. Rick Stanczyk
