Blackjaw made it into town on Sept 20th and fish about 45 hours casting until it was time to leave on the 7th. To make a long story short I only caught 4 fish and they were all very small jacks. 3 of the jacks were caught fishing the harbors and they were only 12 inches! I also caught a 14 inch jack in Salt Creek in Indiana. I fished all different time frames, even the sweet spot times. I used flicker shads, but could not stick anything. I saw fellow angler and friend Rick out more than a couple times. He caught a fish right next to me so maybe my fishing was due to operator error. Rick also donated a 14 lb fish to me which I smoked and turned out great. Smoked at 165 for 9 hours. I mentioned in a previous post 70 degrees to smoke that was a typo, 160 or 170. On another outing I ran into southshore. He hooked into a nice fish, but it ripped the hooks from his lure. There were definitely fish around, I just didn't get any. A yearly Illinois license and yearly Florida license, a lot of time and money spent; but that's the way it goes sometimes. I can't ever remember a year I did not catch a big fish in the fall. This was a first for me. So Blackjaw is back safely in Florida now wishing you all great fishing for what is left of this fall salmon season.

There's just not as many fish...so don't feel bad. I used to live in Florida in the 80s and fishing was great...i went in 2006 and hit a Red Tide in Venice so nothing. Good Luck there!
