Gulf of Mexico FL & Montauk, NY Fishing Reports [Post#: 1929 ] Reply to this post

Tarpon Springs, FL Report


April 14, 2005 * 12 Hour Reef Fishing Trip
Captain Bobby said the Starship enjoyed a beautiful day of fishing on Thursday during a 12-Hr trip. They had plenty of throw backs on the deeper drops around 25 miles offshore; during the afternoon Capt. Bobby moved closer inshore where they saw warmer water and larger keeper groupers. The 13 fares managed eight keeper groupers; Jim Wilborn of Valrico, FL took the grouper pool with a 9.75 Gag Grouper.
April 15, 2005 * 8 Hour Lazy Bones Trip
The Starship didn’t enjoy the same weather Friday as she did on Thursday! In spite of the sunshine it proved to be a difficult day of fishing with the wind blowing 20-25 knots. The weather contributed to no keeper groupers but still several gray snapper were caught.
Update April 15, 2005 * 44 Hour Middle Grounds Trip
The high winds kept the Starship from going on the Middle Grounds trip this weekend, Captain Rich and the crew are hoping for fair weather next week to kick off the run of Special American Red Snapper Trips. The trips on 4/20/05 and 4/22/05 are SOLD OUT…but there are still openings on the remainder. See the schedule on the website for a complete list.
