The Proctor family fished with Capt. Nick & Capt. Rick Stanczyk this weekend, 2/18/11 and 2/19/11, for some offshore and backcountry action. They fished aboard the "BnM" on Friday for a full day. Fishing was kind of tough, sailfish did not cooperate, nor the king macs, or even the yellowtails on the reef! However, they did catch a nice 40 lb cobia out of the kite while sailfishing! They also dropped on a hole and caught a huge 18 lb mutton, as well as a 20 lb black grouper, too bad they weren't in season! They also caught a few tunas, a schoolie dolphin, some kingfish and a big ol' porgy! Saturday they went for a half day with Capt. Rick Stanczyk in the backcountry. They fished the edge of the gulf, again fishing was a little tough back there, though they did catch about 15 spanish macs, ladyfish, a couple bluefish, 2 nice blacktip/spinner sharks, and a lil' 10 lb. cobia on the light jig rod - very fun on light tackle! Sometimes it's quality, not quantity, that counts on these florida fishing charters! As the weather continues to warm up, the backcountry fishing should really be taking off again, looking forward to great days in the gulf, as well as tarpon fishing in the back!!!
