Last Weekends Catch.  

I had a charter on Monday the 16th and wanted to do some pre-fishing.  This time of year, the fish are in a transitional phase.  They are moving from the deeper holes, the river, and the creeks back into the flats.  I wanted to see where they were.  The picture above shows some of the fish we found. 

The annual Steinhatchee Community Tournament was going on Saturday so Garry and I decided we would kill two birds with one stone so to speak.  We combined my scouting trip with tournament fishing.  

One of the prizes awarded was "redfish with the most spots."  We caught many redfish.  In fact on Saturday we culled some smaller fish.  We also caught the fish below.  Note it had nine spots on the side you can see.  Well, it also had nine spots on the other side.  18 spots total.  A great fish to catch when spots are paying $250 dollars!  Look at this fish!!

18 Spot Redfish.

Well, as it turns out, our fish was FIRST LOSER!  The winning Redfish had 23 spots!  We sure thought we had it with 18.  I have seen 6 spots win before.

We had a blast catching fish on Saturday and Sunday!  On Monday, the fishing slowed a bit, probably because of weather factors.  Sometimes it happens.  That is why they call it fishing!  On Monday I had two great guys on board.  Marv from Jacksonville and Elgin from CANADA!  I think he won the award for farthest traveled!  Great guys that are welcome anytime.

New Shirt Color. PINK!!

The next few weeks should show the Spanish Mackerel showing up in large numbers.  They are already showing up on the docks.  These guys are a ball to catch as they absolutely BLAST most anything moving in the water.  You can usually find them by looking for the diving birds.  On calm days you can see them tearing up the water from a great distance.  Trolling spoons is another great way to catch these tasty fighters!  They are only here in great numbers certain times of the year, and they are an added bonus to our Trout and Redfishing adventures.

We are offering a spring special for those who can get away on weekdays. Monday through Thursday through the end of April we are offering free lodging for two.  This is a single room with at least two beds.  The rooms are clean and nice.  If you want to upgrade to three or four folks, you can do so at a nominal cost.  This is a great offer that can save you over $60!  The trips must be booked and enjoyed before May 1st to receive the offer.  Just let us know when you call that you want to take advantage of the offer.  

Some of the best days of the year to fish are here now.  Cooler days and mild nights are an additional reward for spring fishing!  You can leave your rods and reels and tackle at home, as we provide the tackle, bait and lures, water and ice. If you have a favorite rod and want to bring it, do so!  But we provide everything you need to have a fun, productive and safe day fishing.  

We are filling up quickly for our scalloping trips.  If you want to ensure getting the days you desire, I HIGHLY suggest getting the trip booked NOW!  Some dates are already filling for the hotels and rental properties.

Those that book early get the best dates!

The cooler nights and milder days are still here for the next few weeks, but are going to end very soon.

Scallop season is JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
That special time of year when we are blessed with the opportunity to jump out of the boat and collect those delectable crustaceans is about to be upon us.  

If you have never done it, it is an absolute blast.  We swim the clear waters in the grass flats of the Gulf of Mexico.  Some equate it to an "adult Easter Egg hunt."

Most who try it are hooked, and come back again and again.  Many go every weekend!
A nice box of FRESH SCALLOPS!
The captains here at YKnotFish make it EASY!  

Bring you own mask fins and snorkel.  We supply the bags and buckets, coolers, ice and water. We take you to the best Scallop grounds we know.  

Simply bring your swimming equipment (which can be purchased at several locations locally), what you want to eat and drink.  What could be easier?!?!?  

Come by yourself, or bring a few friends and family.  We can handle groups large and small.

The Scallop Grounds.  Great Family Fun for Everyone!
