8/13/2003 Captain Dude!!! Hopedale / Delacroix Island Fishing Report!!!

13 Aug

Mr. Lester Sarpy, Thomas Kelley, Barry Yokum, Gene Dodd, we started down the ship channel in search of some Red & Mangrove Snapper, Lemon Fish, and Grouper!!!
The weather was scattered thunder storms 2’- 3’ wave’s incoming tide just, perfect for an offshore trip. We stopped at one of my Hot spots we were using dead shad on the bottom. Wham!!! Snapper on ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! We lost a lot of hooked up fish. Later I hook up on a Nice Grouper landed it but only 20” long back in the water. Wham!!! Gene hooked another 2 Groupers they both were keepers. While were all were on Red & Mangro Snappers. One of the trigger fish that I caught flipped about 6” off of the floor of the boat and bites my little finger; it almost took out a chunk!!! Needless to say I BIT HIM BACK after he hit the pan!!!
Latter in the day My good friend Walter and his wife Brenda Lavine pulled up and we hit the water with spear gun in hand. I decided to just site see as I did not want to spear any fish with the 7   5’to 6’ Barracudas that were just staring at me like chum!!! Latter Walter brought up 3 Big Groupers!!!
This was one of many great Memorable Fishing Trips!!!
We caught:
2 Grouper
12 Red Snappers
4 Mangroves Snappers
3 Trigger fish
Check out the Great Pictures!!!  
All you have to bring is a fishing license and what you want to eat and drink. Two Comfortable Private Deluxe overnight accommodations that have NIGHT FISHING & you can catch CRABS right from the boat dock.
