Im headed down south to see what the gulf has to offer. Will update as i am able. Weather looks perfect and i have heard tale of multiple hookups of 200+ lb yellowfins. Hope that holds true.

Kevin Sneed sent these pictures of a back water red fishing trip he and Kimber Alford took today. Kevin said he was using a custom OIFC spinning rod with a Shimano Sahara which made a perfect in shore combo.
Couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks for the pictures and the report Kevin.
Here we are. Bus ride wasn't too bad. Crowd is down by half at least from 09'. Congressmen on stage strutting their support..... Funny thing is PETA is here too. Me and Barrett had to take the topportunity at a photo op, talk about being out of place: mini skirts and high heels? Really? They are getting an ear full from this crowd. Stay tuned.
Pictured is John Kerry on stage, a heavy hitter showing support. Good mix of bipartisan support; seems like no good reason why things should not be able to get fixed.
My observation of the event is initial puzzlement of why more progress can't be made on the issue in that several of the most powerful Democratic Senators in Congress spoke in favor of the effort to modify the Magneson=Stevens act to relax the rules in favor of flexxibility for fishery management. Senators Kerry, Shumaker,Frank[and others]; on the Republican side Senator Scott Brown[and others]. The point is there is bi-partissan support for the effort. So, why can't it get anywhere? The answer is apparently the other 90% of the inland folks in Congress don't have a dog in the fight and apparently aren't interested. SO.....step #1 is define the problem....step#2 is figure out a solution. Standby, this one needs some thought, but having made the trip, it was very enlightening. This one should be solveable, even dealing with national politics.
Thanks to everyone who took their time to come and support the effort. Let's figure out a new plan of attack.
Larry Spainhour submitted this information about a 43 pound Wahoo caught by Jeff Annas while he was fishing with Steve Farmer and Jason Gore near the 100/400. The trio were fishing in 330 feet deep of 72 degree water.
Thank you Larry and great fish guys!!
Tim Greene took his children fishing around the Sunset Bridge aboard his Key West when his little girl Selah caught her 1st Red. She was using a small pinfish as bait. The boys were jealous. I've always said ladies make better anglers!!
There is not much of a better feeling that seeing the look on a child's face when they catch their 1st fish!!
Thanks for sharing Tim.
Jake, Moma, and myself hit the water for a few minutes this morning. We didn't have to go very far to catch a few fish. Jake had a blast reeling in 10 trout and 2 redfish. I missed several strikes, but I also managed to get 2 trout and a redfish to the boat. Most were on the small side, but lots of fun!
We still have few seats left on the bus- cost is $35 per head. Bus will leave OIFC on Wednesday at 4:15am and arrive to DC about 11:30am. We rally til 3pm and then hopefully load up and get home before midnight -- Come join the excitement; I bet your kids could even get an excused absence for this excursion! Email me at email@example.com if you want to join -- thanks.
We are fighting for our rights to fish, and we must show our support for the cause. This rally really needs to turn out numbers to show continued unity in this fight.

Jay Murphy and George "The Dredge" Macon fished a little inshore of the 100/400 Sunday. The ocean was 175 feet deep and 73 degrees. They had one short bite and one break off with all but one being on a red and white, not to include the 2 1/2 in the picture below. The big wahoo weighed 50 lbs. Not sure what the 1/2 weighed. It appears the camera man was a little slow on the draw.
Not only did Jay apologize for the butchered fish, but he was even more apologetic for Bill, who was "Tebowing" in the picture. As per Jay Bill is a Georgia fan and just hasn't figured it out yet.
By the way..don't you wish you'd entered the Rodeo Saturday when you were talking about it...Snooze you lose! Just kidding!!
Yesterday, Daniel Simmons, Brian Freeman and "Big Kevin" went to the blue water aboard Daniel's Contender the "Reel McCoy". Actually they went to the 100/400, the same place the "Dirty Martini" had been a couple of days prior.
The guys came to the OIFC with the wahoo in the picture. They said they released some other blue water fish. Daniel weighed a 41.1 lb wahoo for the rodeo which puts him in 1st. Brian reported a warm eddy at the 100/400 which was @76 degrees.
Note: Jeff and Daniel both said I could disclose the location in an effort to save everybody from burning a lot of fuel hunting for the fish.
Also my apologies to Kevin..man I've got a mental block on your last name!
BRAIN LOCK CORRECTED!!!! Kevin isn't Kevin...He's really Brian Robbins!!! Also Brian Freeman is actually Bryan Freeman. I am going to start wearing a name tag so I can remember who I am. Getting old isn't for sissies!!!!
Michelle Evans Drake, wife of Jeff Drake was joined by David Christian and Ashley Komoroski for a blue water trip this weekend. She said the bite was fair, they caught a few mahi, had several short strikes and some break offs.Otherwise, great to get on the water.
I asked Michelle to marry me because she washed the boat, mowed grass, washed the boat towels, fed Jeff and the labs BEFORE she ate and relaxed.

Worked in the store this morning and lots of people were out fishing today. I have not heard any reports back from anyone, but I am sure someone caught some fish today. It was absolutely gorgeous! Our backwaters are alive! Baby mullet minnows are as thick as I have ever seen them. The flounder should have plenty to eat this year! My Mom just got into town for a visit this afternoon, so a fishing assault has been postponed. I did talk my Mom into walking down to the dock for a few minutes which allowed me to make a few cast. Honestly, we were just enjoying the weather and having conversation! Apparently, a flounder wanted to join in on the action, my chartruese soft plastic on a 1/8 ounce jighead got slammed by a nice flounder. Who would have guessed? Supper on the table...See ya on the water!
Captain Jeff Martini of the Midtown Bristol fished the 100/400 with his son Chance and friend Bill Hall. They caught mahi ,kings and black fin in 200 feet deep water. The water was 74 degrees with great color.
As many off shore fishermen say, no need to go looking for fish if you know wher they are.
