  1. Hey TOF Crew, Got an invite from Dylan Hubbard to go Hog Hunting with the Mighty Hubbard's Marina team, so it's time to head to Madeira Beach for some offshore action. The weather was perfect as we headed out for our next NBJ adventure. Capt. Frank had us on the fish from the first stop to the last. Joining me today is new NBJ Colorado Pro-Staffer Tim Conner Tim was off to a strong start scoring Red Grouper, Jolt Head Porgies, Key West Grunts and even our FF #60 File Fish. We landed ten different species on the trip, but it was the Hogfish and Mango's that were the center of attention. It wasn't long before the 1st Hog hit the deck, then another and another! The rest of the boat was scoring too, lots of mangrove snappers, a very nice gag and even a Kingfish were caught on a flat line. Met several of the Hubbard's regulars, who scored with NBJ and even converted a few from knocker rigs too. We caught and donated to the boat lot's of tasty Porgies & Grunts, but the Hogs and Mango's came home for dinner. Want to thank Capt. Frank & his first rate crew for their excellent service and can do attitude. Dylan Hubbard and Hubbard's Marina run a great operation from the back office staffers to the pros they have in the Capts. chair. Thanks Guys.... Looking forward to my next Hubbard's adventure. Cheers TK
  2. Pac Blue vs. Rusty Bellies ! Looks like Todd Randa is putting on a clinic with the Jumbo RG's. He has been on a Serious Roll lately with these end of season beauties. Judging from the size of those plump nuggets, we are going to have a great fall fishing season!. "My friend Brian Willis and I went fishing. he got his first keeper grouper weighing around 15lbs. great day.. I also caught a keeper grouper and we also caught around 10 shorts ... Also caught a squid. all caught on the miracle jig.. Nekid Ball Jig. Even the squid couldn't resist it. My friend Todd, the owner of the patent really created an awesome jig. Works on pretty much any fish. Its unique design triggers the bite. Everyone needs to try it. Even my friends in MN. I'm serious.. All my poles have those jigs on them.." TR Thanks for the offshore field report Todd, Nothing more satisfying than seeing the results of a great day on the water with friends and family. Cheers TK
  3. Hey TOF Crew It's been a little while since the Fooled Fish List added a new member. Fooled Fish #59 - African Pompano! Congratulations to Chris Taylor "Doing a little tackle testing yesterday.

We are looking forward to your deep drop report. The FF List keeps Growing! Cheers TK
  4. Hey TOF Crew, Just got this near shore report from Todd Randa.. "Hello, I have to report on this amazing lure. Yes, I said amazing. I went fishing with 2 friends of mine about 16 miles out of Clearwater in 65 feet of water. I have fished with the nekid ball jig, but only the smaller version and was sold on it.. I kind of made an assumption that it was great for smaller reef fish, but not grouper. so I never pulled out the larger one and tried it. My bad.. Boy was I wrong. It caught 4 to one with your regular knocker rigs for reef fish which includes grouper. Yesterday, I pulled out the large jig that was given to me by the designer of this rig and let me tell ya. I am going to go out and buy a bunch of them. I caught many grouper, and even a large Spanish mackerel. I was chumming and got lucky enough to lure in a large school of sardines, which must have felt the shadow the boat cast was a safe place to be cause they pretty much stayed under the boat all day. I believe the nekid ball jig was getting hit by large Spanish mackerel but those critters are hard to hook. I also free lined live sardines and set them on balloons and the mackerel were pounding them. I could watch them swoop in and grab the bait but they would hit just below the head thus avoiding getting hooked. The sad part is I could have filled a cooler with those guys, but couldn't hook them. I know in the past I have been told a hook with a stinger works great.. Not sure, but I thought I remember hearing that's not legal.. but I could be wrong. Can someone tell me how what would have been the best way to get these guys keeping in mind they were swarming the sardine bait ball and would attack any sardine we through in the water.. Any help would be appreciated.." TR Hey Todd, Thanks for a great report. Regarding stinger hooks, they are legal in Florida, but be sure to check your local regulations. Spanish Mack's can be tricky, try a quick, erratic jigging retrieve, the action of the NBJ will drive them crazy. Cheers TK
  5. Hey TOF Friends, Just got this report from Manwich710 Personal Best Gag Grouper caught on NBJ. "This is the only photo I have of fish caught on NBJ, but we have caught mangrove snapper, grunts and small grouper on your 1 oz jigs. This day was first morning after a full moon 40 feet off of Egmont this summer. Went out solo fished a NBJ and 2 flat lines, caught nothing but sharks on flat line, caught best personal grouper on NBJ, only hit on bottom that morning. Had a nice prize to show off when I picked up wife and kid for sandbar fun. Little cutie is my 2 year old girl Brooklyn Rose" Congrats Manwich710... Nothing better than fishing with a Little Angel & catching your Personal Best Grouper on NBJ! Cheers TK
  6. Hey TOF Crew, Got this video in my feed and thought you guys might enjoy it. If you have ever fished the Inlet pier and wondered what it looked liked underwater, Well here you go. Here are a few pics from our last visit to the inlet. These Bruiser sized Jacks kept us busy for hours. Also landed some nice Blues and a couple of decent Pomps. All fish caught on 1/2oz Polar White NBJ Cheers TK

  9. Nekid Ball Jigz Pro-Team Offshore Report - John Masters "Went out of Miami and headed North towards Ft. Lauderdale trolling around 15 miles offshore looking for Mahi-Mahi. At around 8am three rods went off. One was a miss, the second was a Cow, Dave quickly brought her in. The third rod I grabbed was a 39lb Bull. As I was fighting the bull I see a peanut jumping over and around my line. Start thinking to myself.... If that little $%^#$ cuts me off I'm gonna explode. About this time I see Dave is using my Redbone rod and there was an NBJ tied to it. Woooo Hoooo Fish On! Watched the Dolphin jumping over and over, figured it weighed about 15lbs The fight didn't last too long on the 10lb test, it went into overdrive and is now swimming free with a Polar White/Crystal Flash Lip Ring. Dave quickly grabs another rod rigged with a 1/4oz Polar White/Crystal flash, it only took a few seconds in the water before the line starts ripping off the spool, only to end in a quick break off. Maybe there was still some nicked line that was higher up the leader that got missed getting trimmed off, Always check the full length of the leader and the last few yards of your main line. Looked like the biggest fish of the day. Now that we have the Big Bull in the boat. We re-rig and begin trolling again. After about 10 mins, we spot 5 Frigate birds circling and diving, so we head that way and all four rods go off. We were in a LARGE school. I quickly land my fish so I can grab an NBJ rod. This time the rods have on 1/2oz Hot Pink/Orange Shrimp. There are still two fish being fought on the stern, so I chooseto go amidships and drop it strait down. It didn't get 10 feet below the boat before it was engulfed by another 15lber,and then a second one on the next drop. After the fish were landed, we drifted for a few minutes so we could re-rig, I made another cast out and caught another just short dolphin. Back she goes! After the guys finished rigging, we trolled for about another half hour and filled our limit. Then it was time to go home, wash the boat, clean the fish, take a shower and Pass Out." JM Great Report John Cheers TK
