new wind

Finally something other then a north it has shifted to the east and may being still shifting to a little south of east as the day goes on...fisherman know the southeast is the best wind for the pier

the water is still clear and we have some fishing size waves...temp 72

yesterday saw a big increase in the daily catch..had a good run of bonito, still acres of skipjack, along with spanish, reds, blues, pompano, and flounder

all in all a good day of fishing

Saturday, October 29, 2005


Broken record on the weather...Cool north wind crystal clear water and small waves...Temp 72 this morning

more fish showed up yesterday..At time there were acres and acres of skipjack...They also reported some Spanish, reds, blues, bonito, and pompano...

Better fishing

Conditions still about the same...Water temperature 72 crystal clear light north wind small waves...The sand bars are still looking for a permanent place

more fish showed up yesterday that had a huge catch of reds, some Spanish, skipjack, blues, and a few black snapper...

so far there is no entry in the junior angler category for the pier...12 and under catch a fish enter it in the rodeo and win a prize..Times running out for this one

The beach and sandbars are changing daily...It will be interesting to see where they finally end up

weather almost no change still a north wind which knocks down any waves and crystal clear water

yesterdays catch was kind of light again a few Spanish skipjack and reds.

water temp

This cold snap has dropped the water temperature to 73...we still have clear and calm seas with a light chilly north wind

not many fishers but they did report catches of skipjack and reds

Tuesday, October 25, 2005


Weather conditions the same...Cold north wind that keeps the waves down and clear water

the beach is still growing another 100 feet added over night

no fish were reported yesterday...One of the reasons, not very many hard core fishers were out

Monday, October 24, 2005


Feels like winter is here...We have a strong north wind which is bringing down the temperature....Wind has knocked down all the waves, so it is flat and clear

yesterdays catch was again on the small side, just a few flounder, Spanish and blues

Sunday, October 23, 2005


Our first of many cool nights....The wind is out of the north and we have some nice waves and swells....Water is still very clean

not much action yesterday a few Spanish, flounder, and blues

the sand bars have moved again..We gained 30-40 feet of beach sand overnight


Our first of several cool nights....still have the dreaded north wind, good waves and swells, and clean water

yesterdays catch not much just a few spanish, blues and flounder

overnight the beach grew by 30-40 feet the sandbars have moved and will continue to move can make for some interesting fishing

Saturday, October 22, 2005


Wind has shifted to the north again...Expecting some cool temperatures the water is still clear and the waves have dropped a bit but still 2-3

fishing remains slow just a couple of good Spanish runs and some blues

Friday, October 21, 2005


We are seeing the first signs of Wilma...Our wind is still light and from the south, but the seas are building and the water stirred up...It is still clean..Just hard to see into because of the wave action

Finally a small change in the we still have the clear water but the wind has finally shifted to the south and some small waves...this should really help fishing if it holds for a day or two

yesterday we had several great runs of spanish, they would only stay in 15-20 minutes, but when they were there everybdy was getting them ...also a few black snapper were reported

if the wind continues to shift and gets south or southeast fishing should pick up

still rough

The wave action has calmed down a bit, but still rough if nothing major happens should be calm tomorrow...our northeast wind is being caused by the storm of bermuda dont know what it's going to do so we again have northeast wind and southeast waves the water is still clean

not many fish the reported catches were spanish, hardtails, skipjack, blues, and reds

one entry n the destin rodeo a 2.4 pompano

Tuesday, October 04, 2005


If the seas return to normal the fishing should be great....again today we have a strong east wind, waves out of the southeast and clean water..the latest storm in the southern gulf is still pushing all the water this way

Sunday, October 02, 2005

churned up

usually when we have a north east wind the seas lay down....not today the will is brisk, and the seas are riled up...waves coming out of the southeast again...the water appears to be clean but wave action affected the visibility

the only reported catches yesterday were hardtails, and whiting
