Fishing Report: Today was a very special day for both myself and my clients.This is the first
time in many years that my clients have caught the 10th fish over 10 pounds
before the month of May and to think that we are only in the second week
of March really gets me pumped up for the rest of spring.My client Ed Makeover
of Astor FL on the St Johns River and his son in-law Brian of NC joined me
today for a full day shiner trip.Ed told me up front that he was looking for a
big fish only and that is what I really like to hear a client tell me.This lets me
know up front that I can spend the day fishing the areas I know as a guide
not having to worry about getting a lot of bites just big bites and that is just
what we did.Ed got the job done quick as the first fish in the boat was a
beautiful St Johns River Trophy Weighing 10 ,8 pounds.He set the bar high
for the next 7 hrs and we did have the chance at a couple more big fish
and one that broke 25 pound mono in open water.The total fish for the day was
14 all but a couple weighing over 5 pounds.Ed lives on the St Johns River
in Astor Fl and fishes it on a regular basis.It was great to see a good man catch
his first fish over 10 pounds on the water he call's home.
I start a four day artificial trip tomorrow and will be posting a report on the
artificial fishing later this week.
