    SLAMMING THE KITCHEN 1/15 & 1/17

    the color for both days were glow/gold
  8. Monday 1/15/12 I set out with "Bubba" who just moved down from Alabama. We arrive at the kitchen at roughly 6am. It is very very chilly and we are having hopes that the cold front didnt shut the fishing down. There was a morning solunar from roughly 6:30-8:30 and we launched at low tide. It wasnt long before bubba got a small trout. We hit the mangroves with not much luck. Hut the deeper interior holes with a trout here and there. Hit the deep structures with a trout here and there and a load of ladies to boot. We tried to go out on the flats but the tide started going out again. Did i mention the West wind was howling something brutal. So we fished the interior for the outgoing until the tide switched tried to hit the flats again but still not enough water. Back to the interior. About now we have loaded up on trout but nothing else. We make our way down a small cut and spooked what seemed like a red. Worked the area and i finally get the first red of the day around 2:30pm, measured in at roughly 21". Released the red and tried working the area some more with no luck. Made our way back to a low flow area with patchy algae/grass with an adjacent structure and i get what feels like a small spunky red. When the fish made his jump i saw the black lined wonder wink at me. Yes its a snook. Landed the fish and snapped a quick pic let him suck my thumb and sent him on his way. Woo HOO slamma jamma!!We worked the area a little longer to try and get bubba a snook or red but struck out. Got off the water around 4:30pm and headed home. Next time Bubba, we will get you some fish so you can call this place home!!!Wednesday 1/17/12 last minute plans came together with myself and bicoastal (Andrew)to hit the kitchen. Since he missed the kitchen clinic i decided to show him around. Andrew launched before me and i launched around 1:30. Tides sucked as far as movement but the main key was that there was alot of water. Incoming all day until a 2.4ft high tide at 9pm. As i was hitting the interior islands i picked up 2 trout within the first 10 casts. Wiggled my way through the channels trying to find andrew and picked up a small 20" red in my "go to" spot.Made my way out to the flat where i met up with andrew. Showed him the oyster beds and i picked up another redOff in the distance we can see the storm coming and the winds started to increase. I found a nice island with a small ledge with some nice patchy grass/algae and made a few casts to the backside of it with a couple nibbles but no hookups. I moved closer to the top of the island and cast to a nice ambush area where there is oysters on the point and a sand flat on top of the island 2 bounces of the paddle tail and fish on!! after about a 3-4 minute battle the fish was boatside. He posed for a glamour shot too. Meausred at 27" natural layReleased the big boy to be caught another day. So now the storm is approaching and i get my gear on as the temp is dropping and the wind shifting every which way. And then it lets loose. Now we arent the type of people to just give up when it starts raining. Nope. We kept on fishing. No lightning, only heard one boom of thunder so we were safe. As its raining im still in the same side of the island but now the side of the island is a dead zone from the wind so i wasnt moving at all. Kept fan casting and got a nice thump but missed. Recast and blammo fish on!! A nice jump from the black lined wonder and up to the boat for a pic. Luckily i had some dry paper towels in my drybox so i dried off the lens and snapped a pic. This ended up being my best HARDCORE PICTURE so far. Who says the fish dont bite while its raining?We keep fishing, and i get hooked up about 20 casts later in the same spot to a bigger snook which measured roughly 20" which rounded out my second slam of the day. Went to take a pic but batteries went dead. I have extra batteries but couldnt change them out in the monsoon. Meanwhile, poor andrew is struggling. He has a blowfish, a cichlid and some ladyfish and diggs up a small trout. Thats gotta be some kind of slam..I tried to critique his methods but it seems like the fish like the way i wiggled my worm today. By now the winds have shifted directly southern and we took a little refuge on the north sides of a couple islands one of which has an oyster bed point. I made my way over and the fish gave himself away. One cast, and i swear he must have been there with his mouth open and before i could click the bail over I feel the thump in the line. Set the hook and little red on. ~20. Released to be caught another day. We worked the area a little more with nothing much except the damn needlefish so i show andrew the oysterbeds on the back side of the island. Bunch of stingrays, no other activity though. We decided now to hit the interior islands. Couple of ladies here and there and andrew gets a small red not much bigger than his shoe. By now its getting late and we started to head back. The sun disappeared quickly but the memories will last a long time. I had a great time andrew, thanks for sticking it out in the monsoon with me. KEEP IT HARDCORE!!!!!

    1/7 kitchen and 1/9 south shore (lots of lictures)

    I have been tinkering with the thought of jewbanging, I mean goliath kayak fishing. I have felt the power of these fish first hand and even on solid structure they are stubborn. Dangit Gary, you have my wheels Turning now. My best yet is roughly 350lbs.

    I also play photographer if the fishing is slow. I'll follow my buddies around and take shots of them. If we know its a big fish I try and get some action shots.

  13. on 1/7/12 myself and 8 other anglers made it out to the first "touring the kitchen" event. Well not an event, but it should be. Launched at a negative low tide with an incoming tide all day. 2 slams were caught, and over 200 trout between the 9 of us. My lure of choice for the day was a chartreuse 1/8 oz mission fishin jig head with silver and glow doa paddle tail, 25lb ohero floro. Here are the pics from SaurrdayMonday was a 2 man mission on the south shoreToday i get a text from daveyt asking if i wanted to go fishing. Well, we set up a time and we launched on the south shore of beautiful tampa bay around 12:30pm. I have never fished the particular area before and Daveyt was going to show me some spots. We made our way out to a small flat in between 2 islands with channels on either side. Not too long into the trip i get hooked up with a beautiful redi get to another spot and picked off 3 more within 15 casts or so. One fish was had 20 spots. My personal best spotted red.So now i have 4 reds landed and daveyt still has his skunk on. I convinced him to throw on the same paddle tail i was using and boy did it pay off. Davey gets hooked up less than 15 minutes later on a nice red. Once the red was close to the boat he decided that he wanted to go and stay under the boat. A little coaxing and out he came into the hands of his master.http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0082.jpghttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0083.jpghttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0084.jpghttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0088.jpgand the fish stachehttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0089.jpgAfter daveys fish i picked up another small redhttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0090.jpgSo now we chased all the reds away so we decided to move. The next area was on the back side of an island where there were thousands of mullet. So we work the mullet groups one after another. Then the ladyfish showed up. Every cast it was lady after lady. Davey managed to pick a slot trout out of one group of mullet and found a flounder on a nice sandy area. Since the ladies were demolishing the paddle tails we decided to mave. We headed out to the flats on the bay. As we get around the corner i pick up a decent trouthttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0092.jpgThen shortly after a carolina skiff scoots across the flat and marine patrol pulls them over. This scared off all the mullet so the bite shut down for about a half hour or so. We found some thick grass and started picking off reds one after another. I told davey the techinque i was using to skirt the paddle tail just above the grass and he picked off 3 in a row. We almost had a double, we were about a minute or so off. So about now the sun is going down and we see what looks like a bird orgy in the bay we wanted to check it out and see what was feeding on the bait that the birds were feeding off of. Well at the same time there was a cruise ship coming down the channel and i tell davey that we better not be on the flat when the wake hits so i decide to go and see what the birds are up to and what they are eating, of course when i get there all the bait is gone and the birds are just chillin. so we decide to call it a day and head in. As we were heading in the cruise ship wake hit the flat. We were in deep water and had 3 foot rollers so i imagine the wave was the same on the flat. We hit beef o bradys for some much deserved beers and food. What an awesome day on the water with an awesome friend. Thanks for getting me out of the house today bro. Total count for the day in 6 hours was 15 reds, 3 trout, 1 flounder, ass load of ladyfish, and 1 mullet [video width=425 height=344 type=youtube]jXstdyqb4Wg Some misc picshttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0093.jpghttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0096.jpghttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0099.jpghttp://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n222/GSELLERS1245/100_0101.jpgKEEP IT HARDCORE!!
