Weather makes for a weird week

What a weird week. We shot an episode of the “Reel Animals Fishing Show” with Captain Jason Perito on Tuesday. On Monday night, we had a cold front roll through, coupled with a full moon, and that made things tough. The bait was really too easy — two throws and we were on our way. The fish we caught were small, and the pattern was three or four fish per spot and it was done.
On our way in, we decided to fish a spot we had hit at the bottom of the outgoing tide, so we tried it on the top of the incoming tide. My partner, Mike, got down and dirty with a 38-inch, 18-pound snook on 10-pound test line. It ran in and out of the mangroves several times before he could land the fish.
The next day, the fishing was much worse for some, with a few reporting spotty catches of redfish and trout.
On Friday, I had the pleasure of fishing with the Culver family — grandpa Bob, cousin Brian, mother Candy, and the kids, Logan and Faith. The morning started out with one trout after another, with Logan catching the first, the largest (24 inches) and the most. Let me tell you, this 9-year-old was on fire.
Later, Faith caught a really nice snook, and Logan lost a monster. Candy and Bob caught some quality slot redfish, and Bob landed a great linesider. All of our fish were caught in the residential canals and way up the river. It’s just that time of year when our rivers are on fire.
Catch Billy Nobles and Mike Anderson on the “Reel Animals Fishing Show” on Saturdays from 6:30-7 a.m. on WFLA, Ch. 8, and from 6-9 a.m. on 970 AM, and on Sundays from 7-9 a.m. on 620 AM. To book a charter, call 1-866-GAMEFISH or visit http://www.reelanimalsfishingshow.com.
