Fish weren’t the only thing wet that hit the docks on Monday. With scattered showers throughout the morning Monday, a few fishing trips were cut short due to rolling seas, but not before they hooked up with a few fish.
Anglers fishing aboard the No Alibi with Capt. Chris Schofield came in before 11 a.m. with a good catch of king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. The biggest king of the trip almost didn’t make the ride home as the line got caught up in the prop. But the deckhand managed to hand line it in.
Capt. Reid Phillips and his group on the Rewind came in a bit early due to a few experiencing a little sea sickness. But they did manage to pull in a few mingo before heading in.
Anglers on the Sure Lure with Capt. Don Dineen pulled in a few mingo and white snapper before it got to rough on the water.
The group aboard the Un Reel with Capt. Justin Destin had a blast and were still hooting and hollering when they got in. They pulled in mingo, white snapper, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel and bonito. With it drizzling rain at the docks, the guys were still having a good time holding up fish for photos.
The crew aboard the Sea Fix with Capt. Phillip Blackburn and first mate Aaron Smith also had a blast in spite of the rain and rough seas. They reeled in mingo, mackerel, black snapper and bonito.
Mackerel was the catch of the day aboard the Al-Lin with Capt. Harold Staples. They had kings and Spanish, plus a few bonito.
Anglers fishing aboard the Fish N Fool with Capt. Casey Weldon put two and three mingo to the nails, along with a couple of king mackerel and bonito.
Capt. Tommy Carter and his group on the Blue Runner II came in with a couple of king mackerel with a few mingo and white snapper. They too struggled with sea sickness due to rough seas.
Anglers aboard the Game On with Capt. Eric Thrasher pulled in a good catch of mingo, white snapper, mackerel and bonito.
The weather cleared up as the day went on.
This time of year, however, it’s good to be prepared with a raincoat and even a dose of Dramamine.
See you at the docks.
