Capt. John 10 Hour Offshore Saturday August 13, 2016

Todays 10 hour offshore fishing trip by the party boat was again run to platforms to the East and ESE of the island. Captain Johnny Williams put his 75 anglers on another great catch of Atlantic spadefish and bonnethead shark. These species come from near the surface to at or near the bottom. The spadefish hit small pieces of cut squid, fished from just below the surface to about fifteen feet down. The bonnethead mostly occupy the lower end of the water column and hit larger pieces of cut squid or Spanish sardines.

Todays totals were:

275 Atlantic spadefish

60 Bonnethead shark

1 Sharpnose shark

3 Gafftop catfish

4 Bluerunner

2 Whiting

1 Mangrove snapper

1 Gulf trout

See you on the Capt. John!
