We took a trip out of the St. Lucie Inlet Friday morning looking for a Blue Duck Adventure. We headed out to the 6 mile reef but didn"t get any bites. So, we set out for the 8 mile reef in about two hundred feet. Earlier, we cast netted 3 Ballyhoo & a dozen mullet. The fishing was slow at first, until a whole mob of sharks came up to the boat & had a frenzy with our bait...VERY EXCITING! A sailfish & a sea-turtle were among some of our visitors. The sailfish was also very curious about our bait until the sharks came & scared him away. Fortunately for us, we caught one of the pesky sharks & scared the others away! The wind started out in the morning from the Northwest @ approx. 5 mph. By the end of the day, the wind switched & came around from the Northeast to the Southeast @ approx. 30 mph which made the ocean very snotty. So much for the NOAA forecast of South wind out of the 5-10 mph. Luckily, before Mother Nature chased us back inside, we noticed a little bird diving on a pack of feeding schoolies. We were right on top of a weed line in about 200 feet North. After catching 7 dolphin & snapping a few pics, we headed back in for a little stone crab action. We managed to harvest 17 stonie claws, which is about 3 lbs...NOT A BAD DAY!
