 Thursday, August 13, 2009 - The Starling Boys - R & R Back
Seas: 1-2-3    Water Temp: 87°F Crew: Starling Boys 
Moon:     Location: Steinhatchee   
Species:   Category:    
Report: We headed out this morning for some R&R which doesn't happen very often. We left the Steinhatchee channel at 7am looking forward to a nice morning of fishing polished off by an afternoon of scalloping. We ran offshore and absolutely blistered the white grunts and black sea bass. we caught numerous grouper and a few red snapper but all were too short to keep. We ran accross a huge school of bull redfish so we had fun with them for a while. The biggest one went right at 30lbs. I landed double header bull reds 3 different times. What a fight on a shimano torium 16 and a jigging rod! We left offshore and headed inshore ahead of a thunderstorm (thank you Sirius Satellite weather) and intended to do some scalloping. The tide was going out and before you know it, we were beached on a sandbar. When I looked back offshore, the 1 thunderstorm we ran from had tuned into 3 large storms, all headed our way and merging together and popping lightning. There was a sense of urgency to get off the sandbar before there was a BBQ. Another boat saw our distress and came to assist (thank you very much). We got it back in deeper water, threw in the towel on the scallops, and headed to the boat ramp. Great day with my boy and my dad just being kids and fishin!! We all need more days like that!! KEEP THOSE RODS BENT!
