More Fishing Photos from January at Hibiscus By The Bay
After publishing the last post about the January tides and the fishing report I realized I plumb neglected to include a couple of nice photos that a couple of neighbors sent us and gave us permission to use.
The first photo is Doreen Ernst and a nice amberjack.
The fishing report is from her husband Bob and went like this:
Bob and Doreen Ernst motored out from Hibiscus to do some winter fishing on a near shore wreck less than 10 miles out. Doreen brought this big Amberjack up after it ate a 6 oz. white and green jig w/ a 8 inch split tail glow trailer. If any of you have ever hooked an Amberjack you know how hard those bad boys fight!
Good job Doreen! We heard from them both that the amberjack was very good eating! 🙂
The next photo is of our neighbor Bill Allen. Bill and I got to go fishing one nice day in January. The day was cloudy, the temperature about 60 degrees. We found some warmer water and Bill spied a school of fish. He cast first and immediately hooked up. Then I made a cast and shortly was hooked up as well. 🙂 We doubled up!
The jinx is off. I landed a redfish while fishin’ with Bill and a double up to boot. I have never been in a boat when two redfish were caught at the same time so that was cool for me as well. Bill caught two out of the school. I caught one. He also caught a couple of trout earlier in the day.
They were biting my Z-Man shrimp rigged weedless on weighted hook and Bill’s Gulp! shrimp rigged on a jig that I swear he could cast out a mile.
Thanks for spottin’ that school of redfish Bill! All fish we caught that day were released alive and swimmin’.
Have a HAPPY day! Please comment and share this post with anyone you think may be interested!
