A couple of brothers from Tx. transplated to Naples, Florida asked me to help post this report from an afternoon fishing when they probably should have been at work. My good buds Jeff and Corby were fishing in Wiggins Channel using 25lb spinning tackle managed to land, tag & release 3 Nurse sharks (5' 7' & 8') using Hardheads for bait. They also caught and thru back about 20 Mangrove Snapper and had a Manatee hanging around for a while watching the action. Great Pics and great report from my fishing bros in Florida.
Wish I was there to see it! YOU ROCK! Richman-Out!

That last one looks like the 8+ footer I lost, :p right at the beach face on Monday, hook came flying out of it's upper lip!

Nice work.

Not alot of bait around (Juno - Jupiter, on the Beach/Pier or otherwise as of Weds.), but depending on the wind and conditions if you have some bait, there are Tarpon, and 'Cuda, some small Shark (BIG and little Nurse), and all 'kinds of misc. stuff, etc., swimming around.

'Gotta put some time in.

Report from earlier this week to follow tommorrow.

Catch 'Em 'Up!

Day 2

Fishing was so good on day 1 that the brothers could not resist comming back to try for a repeat on day 2, To make a long story short jumped 2 nice Tarpon one around 120lb class and fought it for a couple of minutes before it got off, also lost a monster Baracuda at their feet and tagged and released another little Nurse. I'm jealous........Hats off to another great day at boat channel for the brothers, WAY TO GO! & totally awsome pics. Thanks for sharing.
Richman-OUT!
