First, I need to thank all of our ‘Army Veterans’ and energetic obligation personnel for his or her bravery, assist, and repair in defending america of America and our allies. It takes braveness to hitch any navy department that requires one to place their “life on the road” at any time and be transferred to home or overseas ports, leaving household and mates behind, not understanding if they’ll return. That could be a feeling of loneliness. I salute the Navy, Air Drive, Military, Coast Guard, and naturally, my brothers and sisters within the Marine Corps. SEMPER FI! Flags representing every department of our navy can be displayed at my seminars and on the Fish Face Constitution ‘sales space’ from November BOAT SHOW, positioned in downtown Ft. Myers in and across the conference middle.

Proven right here is one in every of my most up-to-date journeys with two Marine Corps officers from Camp Pendleton, California, Osprey pilot Maj. Jenna Montgomery and reconnaissance (‘RECON’) Captain Christian Cole, holding one of many fish they caught on a latest journey to Florida. Having the pleasure of being with them introduced again reminiscences that had been locked in my mind till that afternoon.

Different latest Marines aboard Fish Face III included Wealthy Hare and his son Scooter. Richard held the rank of sergeant and Scooter a corporal. Richard went on to turn into a commander within the Chicago Police Division and, after retiring, now lives in Cape Coral. He actually needs to be with everybody once more. Thanks on your service and brotherhood. Semper Fi (ALL FOR ONE, ONE FOR ALL)!

The primary of October, 1road Vicki and I returned from our remaining Florida Keys fishing journey in 2023 from Duck Key the place we spent three days fishing with Maverick Boat Group. Maverick hosted Pathfinders house owners and sponsored a fun-filled fishing contest amongst households and mates. We caught many reef species together with some good yellowtail snappers. The dolphin fishing was not excellent and we had been disillusioned with the dearth of catch, primarily as a result of time of 12 months. It is onerous to assume that I misplaced my contact on that journey, however I should have achieved one thing flawed. Nevertheless, I am wanting ahead to Mahi’s subsequent season on the East Coast for an additional likelihood.


Right here in Southwest Florida and all Florida fishing spots (Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest and in between), November is a transition month when the very best tides start to recede and limit entry to many shallower locations. Snook are in full retreat from the seashores to ascend rivers, streams and mangroves, whereas deep-sea species are starting to method the continent at shallower depths because the waters cool. Redfish are nonetheless in good numbers inshore, however are starting to maneuver in from summer season and fall areas to entry baits in most popular water temperatures and depths. I usually goal redfish in October. Nevertheless, I believe the redfish chunk can be higher this November because the water temperatures have been brutal all summer season and all through the month of September and into October. In my view, the fishing plans for different species will even be higher this 12 months than in earlier Novembers. The methods will stay the identical.

Deep sea fishermen have skilled the impact that water temperature has on species. Through the summer season and fall months right here in Southwest Florida, anglers have been pressured to fish federal waters at depths of 150 ft or extra to supply large fish. That is over fifty (50) miles away simply to get to their habitats. I’ve experiences of anglers touring over seventy (70) miles seeking large fish with no ensures. Nevertheless, for the reason that FWC and the feds have shut down Crimson Grouper and Gags, I preserve that those that need to get pleasure from deep sea fishing in November and the “winter” months can nonetheless achieve this on as little as seventy (90) ft of water, as It’s presently of 12 months that reef species will transfer to shallower depths. Moreover, the aforementioned seasonal migratory fish (Cobia, Allow, Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna, and Wahoo) are current. Subsequently, when fishing for reef species, place a few traces and baits greater up within the water column to present your self an opportunity to catch them. Migratory fish are on the transfer and generally is a nice shock.

Heist. Myers Boat Present can be held in November on the Ft. Myers Conference Middle from November 9-12. Fish Face Charters may have a sales space on the conference middle and I can be holding fishing seminars on the east aspect of the harbor the place Marine Max may have their exhibit. Meals and drinks can be on website. I’ll conduct at the least two (2) one-hour seminars on the place, when and methods to fish for inshore and offshore fish, together with tarpon. Examine the boat present brochure for actual location and time. Within the meantime, my tentative plan is for the primary seminar to start between 11 a.m. and midday. The final seminar from 1 to 2 p.m. Query and reply classes can be included.
