Panama City Fishing report

August 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Today, I went fishing with Capt. James Pic, in Panama City, Florida.  Just down the road from Rosemary Beach.

JP worked hard to get us on fish, and he succeeded. We (wife and I) caught about 20 fish each, in just 4 hours. (then it was just too hot, time to sit in the pool with a Tuscan lemonade).

More blue fish than anything else, but we caught 7 different species (blue fish, lady fish, spanish mackral, sand shark, cat fish, razor back, and another with a forgotten name).

Double haul casts, with clouser minnows. Learned some new casting tricks from JP, helping to us my body more to cast long distance, and a back cast.  Also some of the fish wanted a very fast retrieve, which was easier with the rod tucked under my arm and using both hands for the retrieve. This salt water stuff can get addicting.
