We were all missing Captain Jeff Williamson until he sent this picture of a big red fish he caught will fishing in Charlotte Punta Gorda Fla.. Capt. Jeff said the water temperature dropped so low it killed the young tarpon and most of the snook. He did find some red fish, trout and a whole lot of sun while fishing with Captain Rhett Morris.
There was a big trout kill in Morehead City, N.C. due to the cold. there was even one of the biggest snow falls recorded in the recent past in Moscow and a fish kill due to the cold now in southern Fla. Perhaps Captain Brant should invite Al Gore and some other global warms to speak at the Spring Kick off in March..
Also, it is with great regret that I am unable to make the trip to D.C. I feel strongly about this issue, will miss the bus ride which ought to be a blast, and I love a good protest! Someone get locked up for me. Good luck, and I hope this will have the desired impact.
Let the games begin. The bus will leave the OIFC at 4:15am SHARP on Wednesday, February 24th. If you have been in contact with me and I've saved a spot for you, you are committed to show. The bus is full and many have been turned away who wanted to attend.
The bus will leave the OIFC at 4:15am and make 2 stops on the way for food and leg stretching. There is a bathroom on the bus, but for the sake of everyone's health and comfort, let's save those morning "duties" for the stops. We should arrive in DC around 11am and the rally is scheduled from 12pm-3pm. We will leave shortly after 3pm, make a couple of stops on the way home again and hopefully arrive back to the OIFC around 11pm. I have a bunch of picket signs that were provided by Charter Lakes Insurance, so don't worry about signage.
Bus entertainment is up in the air. We will have a wide range of characters on board and I'm looking forward to the trip. If anyone has any DVD's, games, stories... bring them.
Again, tomorrow 4am at the OIFC the bus will be leaving. Be there.
Capt. Zach reported that while we were fishing the Georgetown Hole a friend went the opposite direction and fished off Swansboro on Sunday. They caught a 45 lb wahoo and several black fin tuna.
We are 2 days and counting until the trip to D.C.
OK..all rational thinking was that if we went out we wouldn't catch anything. The temperature shot showed the warm water had moved out. It was decision time..do we stay home and think about fishing, or do we take advantage of the excellent conditions and go fishing and not care what others think?
You know the answer! Captain Zach Faulkner and his dad, Benji, Captain Jeff Beck with me and my camera in tow left the OIFC at 6:15 am. We went as far as the Georgetown Hole.Not suprisingly, the warmest water we found was 65 degrees. But no problem..we had a couple of knockdowns by kings, a strike that acted like a wahoo, and one false albacore. But we did get out on a beautiful sea with good friends aboard a marvelous boat the "Get Floored". Any fish would have just been an added bonus. You can't do that in the big city!
Also, a sigh of relief..Captain David Hooks and his wife were involved in an accident .Their vehicle flipped and landed upside down in a roadside ditch.Thank God.no one was hurt!!!
A check of Reef Cast, The National Weather Service and The Weather Channel ALL indicate that Saturday may be THE day !!!!! 10-15 winds, 1-2 ft seas and sunny..could it be true? Find out!
Now is a good time to impart some of Captain Brant's weather knowledge on some who may not have been around the seas in our area long enough to understand reading the various weather reports. For most this is a refresher. The following is part of Brants's 5-20-09 report:
"We've had strong winds and the seas have been building over a long distance and are very large. The wind is forecast to drop to 5-10 knots by Saturday, and although the forecast isn't out I guarantee you it will say 6+ feet....DO NOT LET THIS KEEP YOU FROM FISHING. A 5-10 kt wind makes 2 ft seas, 10-15 makes 3-4ft, 15-20 makes 3-5 ft, and after that it's too rough to worry about. A swell is a residual sea created from rough conditions a long way away, i.e. a hurricane, or from bad weather prior to the current conditions. A swell is a long rolling sea that is spaced far apart and besides sometimes making the run off shore a bit slower, it is hardly noticeable when fishing."
I've been around Captain Brant and other knowledgeable Captains long enough to find this a good rule to go by. I hope it is helpful to you. See you this weekend!
