Hello TOF Friends, Wanted to share this mornings adventure with you, got out on the water this morning around 6:30 just as the tide began to push in. Joining me was my good friend and NBJ Pro-Team member Bryan Holton.he is an 8th generation Floridian and as today would prove a great choice for a partner, We got set up along one of our favorite St Joe Sound beaches and began riding the drift parallel to the beach. Throwing 1/4oz Hot Pink, Chartreuse Yellow & Polar White NBJ's, it wasn't long before I had the first strike when a jumbo ladyfish greeted us with several big jumps and then off she goes. It was Bryan's turn next, and again and again, well you get the point. He was on a roll, species after species came over the rail as he put on a beach clinic. It was fun seeing him hook up one after another and the best part was we were just getting started. Every time we reset to begin the drift again, Bryan was on them...Pompano, Trout, Jacks, Whiting, Silvers, Ladies and even a remora joined the parade. Bryan has been a Major supporter of NBJ from the very beginning and with his help and Jeannie's, I have been able to take Nekid Ball Jigz from out of the garage to around the country. Thanks Bryan & Jeannie, Cheers, TK
Hello TOF Friends, It's been a while since I posted a report, have been very busy filling Nekid Ball Jigz orders, but today was one of those special trips that reminded me of why I love Florida Spring Fishing. Invited our neighbor Ohio Jack to join NBJ Pro-Staffer Bryan Holton for some inshore fun. Jack had never fished NBJ and was mostly a freshwater angler. We hit the crab traps at dead low tide, as soon as the incoming began the action was amazing. Nice sized Speckled Trout joined some Bigger Mack's to begin the day along with tons of ladyfish and about a dozen different species. After we had enough of the tasty speedsters to fill the smoker, we decided to try some of the Island passes of St Joe Sound for some Pompano. Didn't know if they would be there, but sure enough within a few minutes of getting into the drift along the beach...Bang - Pomp On! These weren't little Golden Nuggets, but full bodied bruisers who gave all three of us a work out. Hit after hit, the Pompano kept coming over the rail, hitting on all three colors - Hot Pink Flash, Yellow Flash & Green Flash. Every time I looked over Jack had a Big Smile on his face, as he scored time and time again. Jack will be heading back to Ohio next week for the summer, but as of today he was our newest NBJ All Star. Have a safe trip home Jack and we will see you in the fall. Cheers TK
