Red Devils are back

On Saturday we had a great day of fishing... nothing in the way of catching to talk about.... but the company, and being out on the water was great. Landed lots of 'fingerlings'. Mostly in the 5 and 6 inch size. Randall refused to let me take his picture with his peacock bass.

Finally started seeing Red Devils. Every time you cast at them they scattered in fright. They were located in huge schools along the north fork.... mostly in brush piles warmed by bright sunshine. Water visibility was 3 or 4 feet and they were usually down 3 feet or deeper. We caught 5 or 6 Red Devils for every 100 we cast at. On Sunday the wind was up and the water temperature down. Clouds made it hard to see the schools of red devils. (we gave up on trying to catch any peacock bass) Water temperature was 75/76 degrees (cold)

As the water warms up the tropical fish should get a lot more active.

100 Tuke Days

Catch 100 peacock bass in a day? How about just in the afternoon?
I really have no idea how many fish we all caught, but the two young men fishing off the point (Secret Spot) caught more than 100. (using live bait and lures) The kids in the boat were hooked up to a fish every time I looked up. They would position the boat, cast, and hook up... Dale (on the kayak) and I were not doing to shaby ourselves.

From the time I got there (Secret Spot) around 3:00 until I left around 6:00 it was constant action. We all caught fish around one pound, but I would guess the average at closer to 2 pounds. My largest was 3 and one of the guys on shore caught a 5 pounder. But the exciting thing was the constant action. I'm enjoying the action while the weather is hot. In Jan. when the water temperature drops to 78 degrees, these schooling fish will only be a memory.

Oh, Blue Boat Point already had 3 boats fishing there.... (read really catching lots fish) that's why we moved on up to Morgan's Pt. (Secret Spot)

I ran the boat while Chris and Frank did all the fishing. They were 'testing' my new white streamer fly. The 'Maltese Minnow'. I found some long shank bluegill hooks and bent them to make keel hooks. Long white hair from the new puppy, a little green or silver flash-a-boo, and a small gold barbell for eyes......... and we have a winner.

The peacock bass (small, under 10 inches) were everywhere and fighting over the flys. It was wild action with many double hookups. Frank hooks a fish and Chris casts at his fish for the second hookup.

Once, a largemouth bass that looked to be well over 5 pounds attacked the small 8 inch peacock that Frank was just lifting into the boat. Slash and splash..... we all saw it and everyone yelled at once. Frank rescued the little peacock from the monster bass.

Frank and Chris also 'rescued' (set the hook too quick) the artificial fly before some nice size peacock bass were able to inhale it. (You have to wait till you FEEL the strike BEFORE you set the hook)

There were a lot more active 2 to 3 pound fish today. The water temperature was 83 degrees. Seems like as the water temperature rises, so does the activity level of the fish. Best action was 11:00 till 2:00. Peacock bass like sunshine.

The boys lost count of how many fish were caught after about 1/2 an hour. How many peacock bass can one expect to catch in a day???? As Chris said: ' It all depends on your casting skill and a little luck.'

Standing in waste deep water, with a 35 MPH wind whipping white caps up all around you is not my idea of ideal fishing conditions, but the guys managed to spot several Oio (bonefish) They hooked, landed, and released a few.. Others were too hot to handle and cut the leader on the sharp coral. Dean was the only guy who landed one close enough to me so I could snap a picture. Regardless of the nasty conditions... an exciting time was had by all.
What do you figure? 7 pounds?

First Fish of 2007

Just wanted to share couple pictures of fishing in the new year. Kyle's bone was 27 inches and mine was 29 inches. Hopefully fishing stays this good the whole year.

Two Big Tako

Stan, Just wanted to share photo of my fly fishing catch the other day. Both were caught w/ my 8 wt avid fly fishing rod. No fly was needed to catch them.

Not to worry, octopus are more afraid of you than you are of them. Keep your eyes open and watch where you step while bonefishing the flats, these tako make 'good eats'. (Good bait to) I wonder where he put them after they were caught? In his back pack? You could just slap them against your skin... the suction cups stick real good. LOL


 Dec 16, 2006; 05:17PM - Low Water, Found Car
 Category:  Fly Fishing

The water in Lake Wilson is lower than I've seen it since the sugar plantation closed. Down to the 16 foot level on the South Fork Bridge. Normally it's about 28 to 30 feet there. Found some submerged islands that we've never seen before. Well, the motor found them. Nothing damaged.

Right by the boat ramp you can see the top of a car. Looks pretty new. If anyone had a yellow car stolen....... we found it. I wonder if there is a body inside? Called the police, but went fishing after no one showed up in 30 minutes.

Speaking of fishing. The nice 3 pound peacock bass are schooling and chasing shad around Boy Scout Island. Caught on lures and flys. They seemed to like the smaller silver or white flys.

Along the shore line I found some scattered peacock bass. Very aggressive toward my flys. Some nice red devils too. LOL

Big Numbers in Las Vegas

If catching large numbers of fish is important to you , then Las Vegas is the place to go.

I figured that since the fish would be running between 1 and 5 pounds, a light 5 wt fly rod with floating line would be fun. I caught fish, lots of fish, but those stripers really put up a struggle, wore me out. Next trip I'll take Capt. Marks advice and bring my 8 wt rods with sinking tip and full sinking line. The locally made white streamer fly that imitates the shad stripers feed on was just too big and bulky for a 5 wt outfit. ( He only provides spinning and baitcasting gear, so if your a fly fisherman you need to bring your own tackle. Capt. Mark will be more than happy to provide a list of recommended flys and tackle.)

We met Capt. Mark (Adventure In Angling) at 4:45 AM on a 'cool' 105 degree July morning , jumped in the boat, and headed out for some stripe bass action. Lake Mead has hundreds of small coves. In the first light of dawn we could hear, then see, the stripers chasing shad on the glassy surface. The water boiled with fish all around the boat. We each grabbed a rod and cast to the feeding fish. Hookup. A triple. Over the next two hours it was non stop action. We lost count of the triple hookups. It was common for at least two of us to be fighting fish at the same time.

How many fish did we catch? I have no idea. The limit on Lake Mead is 20 stripers per person per day. We caught more than that in the first two hours. Cleaning and packaging your fish is included. Since we were staying in a hotel we released all our fish. We also stopped to take pictures, rest, and drink lots of water. With all the hot fishing action, we hardly noticed the hot weather. LOL

Capt. Mark suggested I return when the weather is a little cooler and the schooling fish are in the 6 to 12 pound range. Can you imagine catching over 100 fish that big? No wonder Capt. Mark says if you don't don't pay.

New Lodge at Christmas Island

Had a nice visit with Sean Niesz over at Nervous Water fly shop. He and Kevin Faucheux just returned from a very successful fishing trip to that new lodge at Christmas Island. They were the first guests at the KPC Village Lodge in the little village of Tabwakea. Located on the lagoon side of the island about half way between Banana and London, it's only a 20 minute drive from the airport.
(Christmas Island is 3 hours by Air Pacific jet south of Honolulu. There is one flight a week. Tuesday to Tuesday.)

The new lodge has 4 rooms in two duplex apartments and a central dining/bar area where anglers gather each evening for pupus (fresh sashimi, poki, fried breadfruit, and other assorted goodies.) Each room has a mini ice box stocked with bottled water and private bath with plenty of hot water. I liked his stories of fresh fish dishes for dinner and eating lobster.... 3 times. LOL Breakfast to order and making your own huge sandwiches for lunch.

The 'Village' was built by several Mainland anglers who have fished Christmas Island over the last 20 years and decided they wanted a place that, well, 'was built by fisherman and catered to fisherman.'

When you say Christmas Island most people think bonefish. That's a fact. If you want those double digit bones, just tell your guide and head for the flats with waist deep water where the 8 to 10 pound plus size fish hang out. Kevin caught one 12 pounder this trip. Everyone caught several in the 5 to 6 pound range.

I'm lazy. Take me to the sandy flats where schools of 100 bones weighing 1 to 3 pounds cruse the ankle deep water. I ask Sean, 'How many bonefish can an angler catch in a day?' He thought a minute and replied, 'It all depends on your skill level. If you fish in the morning, and again after lunch, stay with your guide and listen to what he says.... even a really junk angler should catch 30 fish a day.'

The 'Village' can only handle 8 guests a week, so everyone gets lots of personal attention. The two boats are on the beach right in front of your room. A short 10 minute boat ride and your already surrounded by sandy flats loaded with fish. If you prefer, a truck can be arranged for fishing at other locations like Y Site or Korean Wreck.

Owning a fly fishing shop, Kevin and Sean wanted to explore other Christmas Island fishing options so they could tell their clients about what all was available. 'I was amazed at the skill and knowledge of our guides', said Sean. 'Just tell the guide what kind of fish your after and they could put you in the right places.'

At the Korean Wreck they caught 1 to 6 pound Omilu (blue travele) on fly rods. On another flat in the lagoon the 5 & 6 pound Papio (GT) gave them a work out. Outside the lagoon they used heavy spinning tackle and surface poppers to land two GT over 50 pounds. Sean even landed a sailfish that chased down his plug. They also filled the big ice chest on the boat with Ahi (yellowfin tuna) and Ono (wahoo). These 5 to 30 pound fish were suckers for a trolled Rappala lure. Spincasting with lighter tackle and assorted lures produced a mixed bag of reef and game fish. Those 'Sweetlips' taste great.

After seeing Sean's pictures, and hearing about the lobster dinners, my friend and I put down our deposit for a trip in November. Well, have to run, I've got lots more flys to tye.
