    Well, it hasn't stop as Lady Luck , strikes again, for Christine Kreiling from Oregon by out fishing her husband Mike today. Mike said, he used to it by now, but keeps on trying never the less. Christine single handed got a Inshore Grand Slam, which is when a person catches a Peacock Bass , a Largemouth Bass & a Snook all in the same day. By the time we took a break for lunch the couple had about 20 in the boat including her Grand Slam. So I took them to one of my favorite watering holes , Sonia's Cuban & Seafood Cafe. It felt good to get out of the sun and enjoy a cold drink and some great food. After lunch we headed to my afternoon spot where they finished out the day with a bang, catching another 14 including the biggest Peacock of the day, and guess who caught it?
    Christina & Mike had such a good time they will out with us again on Saturday. The day totaled out at 34 with 3 Largemouth 1 Jack 1 snook 2 midas, 1 Oscar and a few others species. All the fish today were released for the next angler to catch , "YOU". "The Hawghunter", Capt. Frank Carbone, guides 7 days a week. Good Fishin'

      How to Properly “Catch and Rel

      How to Properly “Catch and Release” Your Fish - A Fishing Fool Article

      Study after study has shown that the majority of fish species can survive being caught and released if they are released properly. With most states now having laws requiring you to catch and release during some time of the year there is a strong need to learn to release your catch in a way that will insure its greatest chance of survival.

      Here are some tips to help improve your fish’s chance of survival once released back into the water.

      Land your fish quickly if possible

      The longer you fight the fish, the more energy the fish will use and will lesson his chance of survival. Also a weak and stressed fish is more vulnerable to predators and is also less able to fight off infection. There is one exception to this and that is when you are fishing in very deep water. A fish caught in deep water needs time to adjust to the pressure changes as he is being reeled up to the boat or his air bladder will expand and he will not be able to swim back down to the deeper water. If the bladder does expand, puncture a small hole with a 12-gauge hypodermic needle if possible to release the air out of the bladder. If a needle is not available use the tip of a clean ice pick. Some light massaging might be helpful to get the air out of the bladder. Just remember to keep the hole as small as possible, the air will go out quickly and the hole will heal in a short time.


      If you are using treble hooks, try removing some of the hooks so the damage to the fish is less. You can cut off one or two of the hooks or some anglers take the treble off and replace it with a single hook. Also try using circle hooks if you are using live bait. Just remember to not “set the hook” as much as you would with other hooks. When you get a bite just lift the rod tip to tighten the line up and start reeling, the hook will set itself in the corner of the fish’s mouth…usually.

      Set your hook quickly

      This reduces the chances of the fish swallowing the bait and then needing the fisherman to perform “minor surgery” to get the hook out. If you do get a fish that is “gut hooked” try to use a hook removal device like needle nose pliers or hemostats to help with the job. If it appears that you will have to do more harm that good to get the hook out just cut the line off as close to the hook as you can and hope for the best. In most instances the hook will work itself out and even if it doesn’t the fish will have a better chance of living with the hook than if damage was done to his internal organs during the hook removal process.

      Try to reduce the handling of the fish

      Leave the fish in the water as much as possible during the release phase. Use a hook removal tool if possible to reduce handling and don’t let the fish thrash around and injure it self or someone else. If you must handle the fish try to use a wet towel or glove and return the fish to the water as soon as possible.
      After the fish is unhooked you don’t want to release him till he is strong enough to swim own his own. Hold the fish gently by its tail under water facing into the current. Move the fish gently back in forth till he can swim away on his own.

      Please practice catch and release whenever possible and remember the large fish don’t taste any better than an average medium one. Take a picture and let the hog’s go back to catch again later.

          Peacock bass fishing Palm Beach Fantastic

          Peacock bas fishing has been great for anglers looking for drag screaming action on extreme light tackle. Doa lures like the 2 inch shrimp trigger strikes. Top water plugs doe cal and live shiners all produce. Fly fanatics the peacocks are very aggressive and will chase down a deceiver or popper with authority. Sight fishing for these beauties is awesome.

          Largemouth bass are striking top water plugs early morning and late afternoon, spinner baits work great along edges of grass and thick cover. Flipping and pitching the thick grass mats is fun but work, in the end the big fish are caught using this method.

          Well that is the report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski,, 561-644-4371
