Clearwater locals find fishing gold in St Pete
Thursday, February 20, 2014
While the rest of the country is in a deep freeze- Florida fishermen are striking gold on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. From Clearwater Beach to Indian Rocks to St.Pete Beach, charter boats are starting to get into the Spring swing and preparing for the day after day routine of meeting awesome people....and taking them fishing!
Jawbreaker fishing charters had the opportunity to host Bob Russel and his family to a sweet half-day fishing charter this past Monday. Bob lives in Clearwater and fishes on his own boat regularly...and his skills proved it, either that or Bob is just one lucky S.O.B. Check him out with grandsons Ian(left) and Eli(right), and his first fish of the trip..nice Gag, see ya in July buddy! Lots of Gag Grouper were released that day, but the Red Groupers are still making up for it, and it seems like the shallow Red Grouper population is still in very good shape.
Well, while the boys beat up the Groupers, Mom and Grandma were busy catching snappers, porgies and seabass to make for a nice looking fish box at the end of it all. Good times were had by all, and in a serious tone-Bob said to me, as he was leaving, “I'll be back!”. I think I will nick name him the 'terminator' for our next offshore adventure. Happy fishing folks! Capt.Dan
