Out of Clwr. Pass 6-14-2022

Went out to the 70' depth range. Jumped in and looked down to see the sand and reef edge. Still gumbo. Just not as bad. I got a 21 3/4" mangoe :D and thought you belong out in the Elbow or MG. Horz....

Re: Boat fuel price question

Sorry, I should have asked about people that do 75-90 total trip miles or more on a day trip on a regular basis. Maybe, you only do a total 20-30 mile run or less for the day. Where I live. We...

Out of Clwr. 6-7-2022

Back out again while the vis. is top to bottom. Jump in and see 70' below the reef. Horz. vis. is a good 35'+. Never know when a strong front will muck up the water. We limited out on gags. Got a few...

Team HeadHunter

Dan, enjoyed watching the new video posted on You Tube titled Ledge of Gags with Ricky doing some fine shooting. There were times back in the 1980's out here that you'd come upon a "loaded" spot....

Sorry, to hear that you didn't do well. I've been out there enough with you thru the years to know you have some very good spots for hogs. My recent trip out of JP produced a few fish. No "loaded"...

Re: JP 5/15/22 Trip Report

Years ago, spearing was the main method of hog harvesting. Now, many target hogs by hook and line too. Also, in the last 2 years more boats fishing/spearing in our area.

Re: Middlegrounds Trip 5/14/2022

Congrats on your trip. Looks like you had similar conditions to the MG trip I was recently on. Mother Nature sets the windows of opportunity.

Re: Mg 05-05-2022

If its been 10 years or longer since you've been out there. You'll be a little disappointed with the fish. 20 years or more. You'll be highly disappointed. Besides the Elbow here. It's the only place...
