Rainey Day

Here on the beach the rain has died down to othing and a few fishers have showed up. Susprisingly the water is still clear. Yesterdays catch included reds and bonito. With the surf up its kinda hard to see far but a fish could ride the waves right into someone's jig today. tight Lines Tommy t

Still waiting

Waiting is the key word for fishing now. The water clarity is great just a little cold. While everyone ants the cobia remember there are other fish just waiting to e caught. Yesterday they got the big pompano, reds, blues, and bonito.

We are still looking for people to work night shift . if interested drop by the pier and fill out an application.

hopefully we will be fully manned and ready for 24 hour operations 1 Apr.

While the majority of the fishers are looking for that first cobia, there are still other species available. Today Sal got a monster pompano. There also been sheepshead caught. The water condition remain good. Yesterday they also got blues to go with more sheepshead. keep your lines tight and drags loose

sooner then later

This is the type of days that the chamber of commerence dreams about. Nice sunny day crystal clear water and a moderate south west wind. Almost perfect for cobia fishing.

Yesterday catch included big reds and bonito. The water temp is still low 60's. Come on out and try your skills.

It could be today

After yesterdays wind and dirty water, everything has cleared up and in
perfect fishing shape. The water is calm with small swells and gin
clear. you will be able to see the fish out to the ramada in these
conditions. The sun is shinning and we still have a few spaces on the
east side. bring your best cobia jig and gaff. water temp has dropped
to 58

weekend is here

Saturday morning and people are out looking for that first cobia. The water is still clear and we have a sw wind with a good chop. Water temp has climbed to 62. Yesterday they caught some big reds, sheepshead , and pompano. Just remember that you can't catch the fish unless your fishing. Tommy Tarpon

remember me Posted by Hello

Getting ready or the week end

If I were a gambling man would bet that a cobia will at least be seenover this weekend. This morning we have a good south wind a nice chop on the water and great visibility. The temp has come back up to 60 its still a little low, but all other conditions are perfect. Yesterday catch was pompano, big reds and some bonito. Dust off the cobwebs wd40 your reels and enjoy a day at the pier.

The pier will be hiring for summer help. Applications are avalable in the tackle shop

beautiful day for fishing

The water has cleared up after yesterdays storm. Visibility is good all the way to the ramada. If you got the right jig and good polaroids, the fish can't escape you now. Be sure to have a buddy with a gaff. water temp went down a bit but will be back up there this week end. All the old timers know that we give a free years pass for the first pompano, cobia, king, and tuna caught each year. Starting today I am happy to announce the pier grand slam. Just as in tennis or golf, it is a major major accomplishment to win all four major tournments in a single year. So if one angler can catch the first pompano, cobia, king, and tuna in the same year, we will present that angler with a lifetime pass to the pier. We will still offer the free year for the first one.Tommy Tarpon

It's a biggie to her Posted by Hello

pier ramblings

This is the first try and getting more information to the fisherman in a timely manner. We will update this blog everyday during to good fishing periods. and at least weekly otherwise. Right now the biggie is cobia. As of this reporting none have been caught off the pier and the free pass is still available to the skillful angler who lands the first one.

We will have an add comments section to this, as long as they
stay on topic and do not contain any profanity. Once abuse is noted I'm sorry to say public posting will cease. So sharpen your hooks, change your line, don your polaroids, and go get the fish. Tommy Tarpon
