Went surf fishing again this morning at Vilano beach,near st Augustine. We got to the beach ramp ready to roll and found that they closed the beach for driving for a few months.So we couldn't fish our big fish spot near the inlet. So we settled for an alternative spot.

Once again got into the whiting except the average size was larger than last time.Also got some sharks, catfish,

Croacker, and small pompano.Something with some size loaded up on my cut bait pole but the hook pulled. Also caught the smallest fish I've ever caught in saltwater .Once again,got to enjoy quality time with my son,  put some delicious fish on the table, and enjoy the beauty of creation. Blessed man I am !😊

Spent a week in gulfport Mississippi with my gf at her dads house. Most of the trout were caught on live shrimp and snagged a few on shrimp swimbaits. Caught the lady fish off an island in the gulf pulled so hard for its size. My gf learned how to use a cast net and caught 22 prawns. Got back to maryland and grilled all the fish and shrimp. Caught my first black drum and first redfish.

That fish is sweet @Leftymuk! Another one of those elusive fish I haven't been able to catch.

 

A beauty for sure. Congrats!

Been a good spring for the big warmouths. Another good one pitching a beaver into the grass on Thursday.

The local river finally got down enough to fish and the hot weather had me itching to do some catfishing, so I went and caught some fat little blue cats, it was a good time.

The largest tributary to the great Lakes, just off Erie was very good to me this spring. For me this year I had 6 solid weeks of limits nearly every day on the Walleye.  Even though the limit is only 4 per day, but seldom taking more than an hour or two to get em, and who leaves when your catchen fish, even if your limited,,,, then it's catch and release time.. That's just fishing between sunup and staying as late as 2 or 3pm, fished at least 5 days a week mid March thru the end of April, and the freezer is stocked! This was about the average limit,, till the last week of April, then 18"-20" was about all you could find. Still f=good eaters, and them last 7 to 10 days fish were everywhere, easily catching over 30 a day.

Then when it was peaking I had few days where the bigger eye's cooperated,,

It was a rough 6 weeks and get's tougher every year,, but thats what the river bank was made for,,,, a place fer us old geezers to sneak in a power nap,,, something I used to never need!

Bass season opened up on Saturday here in PA. I was flipping a 7" worm up under overhanging trees into the shade.

Nice Muskie, they sure are a blast to catch on light tackle.

Nice catches. One of my dive buddies showed me a picture of a +200 pound Wels catfish that he caught freedive spearfishing while on vacation. He said he gave the fish away to some locals since these fish don't taste good when they get big.

Your friend is a braver man than i am...  going after this behemoths underwater with a spear gun! I´ve seen +200 pound Wels swimming in the shallows in a few ocasions while i was bass fishing and let me tell you... it´s one intimidating sight (i think scary is a better word)!

Any well trained spearfisherman can handle a fish of that size, especially if there are no other predators to worry about. I often spear groupers in areas infested with bullsharks, that's much more dangerous than shooting a big catfish. With that said, I would prefer catching a wels catfish on rod and reel and leave the spearing for saltwater fish.
