Cornbeef, Cabbage, & KingFish

3 posts in this topic

With the recent arrival of warmer weather conditions, baitfish will soon invade Tampa Bay. The pelagics will be hot on their heels, and the Mac attack will be in full force.

St. Patty's Day usually marks the arrival of King and Spanish Makerel. Down South, commercial fishermen have experienced an awesome year for Kingfish. Captain Jonnie Brown of Naples fished the Isle of Capri this year and reported filling his 1250lb quota daily hand lining schooly kings in the 10-20lb range. These fish will be heading our way following schools of baitfish up the gulf. Fish the edges of large pods of sardines, glass minnows, ballyhoo and work the edges. Black-outs on your fishfinder will help you to locate fish at deeper depths. Trolling a wire rig or floating balloons will produce good results. A light drag and a lot of line is what you will need to land these smokers.

So, get out there and "Get-R-Done" or give me call and I'll show you how. "Fishing Like a Pro" with EUPRO! Till next time, have a safe and quality

day on the water.
