hile mystic grouper can be caught year-round in the Bahamas, the winter months are our favorite time of year. Whenever a weather window presents itself, we point our bow east across the Florida Straights in search of these deep-water bottom dwellers. Mystics are one of the lesser-known grouper species, simply because anglers don’t fish deep enough to target them. Like all grouper, they are excellent to eat and usually weigh from 15 to 50 pounds, although they can grow much larger. It takes special gear to fish the 800- to 1,200-foot depths where we find mystics. Armed with Shimano Tiagra 80 WAs and Shimano Tiagra 50 WAs equipped with Hooker Electric Autostop drives, we string up 65- to 100-pound Power Pro braid on Crafty One Custom’s Deep Drop Rods. We begin by paying close attention to our Humminbird Solix sonar with CHIRP HD digital technology to locate bottom structure. We look for cones, holes, drop-offs, ledges and deep-water ridges. Once viable structure is located, we position the boat above it with engines out of gear to judge how wind and current will manipulate our drift. Then the

boat is repositioned up-current from the structure and the deep-drop rigs are readied. When targeting mystics, we use our www.ThreeBuoysFishing.com grouper deep-drop rigs made with three 8/0 VMC 3x Circle Hooks on 100-pound branch lines off of 12 feet of 150-pound main line. For bait, we prefer fresh-cut 8-inch strips of dolphin, tuna, wahoo or barracuda. Many deep-drop anglers claim, “no light, no bite,” but our experience has proven that, especially with mystics, we catch more and bigger fish without lights. We deploy two rods on opposite sides of the boat. Lead weights in the 10-pound range are the rule of thumb, but weight can be adjusted to the current. After the weights hit bottom, the reels are left in freespool to lay the rigs straight down on the bottom. The engines should be used to decrease the boat’s drift to a standstill, if possible. If the boat drifts, let out line to keep the rigs on bottom. When the rod tip bumps and shakes, resist the urge to lock up the drag and retrieve line. Wait a minute or two for additional fish to sense the commotion. They’ll often eat the remaining baits. When it’s time to strike, lift the reel’s drag to strike (pre-set to 20 pounds of drag) and slowly start your retrieve. Big mystic grouper put up quite a fight at first, and you might even think you’ve hung bottom. Be patient and slowly gain as must line as possible. When fish are about halfway up, their air bladders expand and create lift. They will begin to float your rig up to the surface. For more tips and tactics on deep-dropping and the tackle and rigs to get tight, see www.threebuoysfishing.com.

Finding bait becomes more important than at any other time of year. Goebel likes to get out well before dawn in search of shad or herring flickering near the surface, especially when a big moon keeps baitfish active all night. Diving birds are also a dead giveaway. They are likely feeding on baitfish pushed by stripers from below. “A lot of times if there’s bait there, I won’t even worry about marking fish on the graph,” Goebel said. “I’ll just put out my lines and start fishing where the bait is.”

By Nick Carter

T

here aren’t many anglers willing to endure the frigid early morning temperatures of winter on a large reservoir. But for those who can handle a little discomfort, right now is the best time of year to hook up with the striper of a lifetime. Around the Southeast, in reservoirs where striped bass were introduced, falling water temperatures spur changes in behavior that make the largest fish in the lake susceptible to anglers. Those 30- to 50-pounders are feeding up right now. They’re storing up reserves that will take them through the spring spawn. “It’s trophy striper season,” said Shane Goebel, of Big Ol’ Fish Guiding Service. “The bigger fish are participating a little better. This time of year, we start going after those big ol’ hogs that are chasing the big baits.” The large summer schools broke up months ago. Stripers are spread out and on the move, following baitfish into the creek mouths and up into the backs of the creeks. Big fish move shallow when water temps hit the mid to low 50s on the lakes Goebel guides in the mountains of north Georgia and western North Carolina. It might take some searching to find them, but the rewards can be huge.

Because the stripers are continually moving with the bait, covering water is crucial. Goebel said to troll as many baits in as wide a spread as you can handle. Herring are great on lakes where they are present, but this time of year you should also work some big gizzard shad or trout into the spread. Sometimes it takes a big mouthful to convince big fish to eat. Goebel runs baits 30 to 40 feet behind planer boards. He’ll drop freelines 100 to 150 feet behind the boat. If the area where he finds bait isn’t too shallow, he’ll put a little bit of weight ahead of the baits on the inside boards to cover more water vertically. He slow trolls at about half a mile per hour. This is a pattern Goebel fishes all the way into May, when stripers have moved into a pre-spawn phase. It might not produce the numbers of fish that downlining into summer mega-schools will, but the fish are generally a lot bigger than those 5- to 10-pound summer schoolies. If catching an enormous striper sounds like fun, zip up your parka and get out on the lake. It’s trophy striper season. Check out Big Ol’ Fish Guiding Service at bigolfish.com.

f Costa Rica isn’t already on your bucket list, it should be. Famous for both inshore and offshore fishing, it’s also a country with incredible biodiversity and exciting eco-tourism opportunities. In short, there’s something for every sportsman and adventure seeker here. From a fishing perspective, the west coast of this Central American country is most favored with several significant cities and ports including Jaco, Quepos and, of course, Golfito. It’s Los Suenos, however, where

my wife, Felicia and I found outstanding action on a trip last April. We worked the inshore grounds, catching huge roosterfish, rainbow runners, grouper, jacks and even mahi. We also decked a big cubera snapper. Of course, we did have an edge. Coastal Angler’s very own Costa Rica inshore reporter Capt. Carlos Arguedas and his first-mate son, Christopher, were our charter crew. “This really is a terrific place to fish,” said Arguedas, “We have access to a lot of different spots ranging from very close to the marina to 50 miles away. The roosterfish action is unbelievable here but we also catch big cubera snapper, amberjack, groupers and huge red snappers, too.” Arguedas loves to take clients for roosterfish because they fight so hard, are found close to port, and grow big. He’s had a 90-pounder grace his deck. For these, he’ll slow troll live baits like blue runners, herring, sardines or bonita. All of these baits, impaled on size 8 circle hooks, also attract other large predators; so you never know what to expect when the rod doubles over. “Roosterfish are very impressive when you first see them,” said Arguedas. “They are exotic-looking with big dorsal rays, a huge mouth and striped flanks. They are stunning to see for the first time. They are also exceptionally strong. Fight a 20-pounder and you’ll think you have a 40-pounder at the end of the line. They jump, too, and shake their head, so remember to lower your rod tip when that fish comes up or you’ll tear the hook free.” Among the other big fish that hit the deck for Arguedas’ crew on a regular basis are goliath grouper that can top 400 pounds. These are targeted around local reefs. If you want to run offshore, sailfish, tuna and marlin abound within 10 miles of port. Dorado, sometimes topping 30 pounds, can be tempted within sight of the coast. Costa Rica’s tropical climate makes it a year-round destination. Most travelers prefer to visit during the dry season, which runs from December through April, but you’ll find lighter crowds and lower travel prices during the “green” or rainy season from May to November. Whenever you visit, it really helps to work with a travel pro that deals frequently with Costa Rica to customize a trip here. Blue Water Sportfishing Charters (http://bluewatersportfishingcharters.com) specializes in setting up trips to Los Suenos. They can put you in the right place at the right time for the fish you want to catch, sights you want to see or adventures you want to experience. They’ll also book you with Capt. Carlos—or you can contact him yourself at www.wingmancr.com.

he first time I saw someone spearfishing, I was intrigued and wondered out loud how hard it would be to load a speargun. A friend heard me and said, “I’m sure you can do it. It’s probably more about technique than brute strength.” He was right. It’s not uncommon to struggle to load your first speargun, and you might suspect they made the bands too short. If you give it some time and use the right technique, it will become easy. First, some safety tips: 1) Never load a speargun out of the water. 2) Keep the safety on until you intend to shoot a fish. 3) Even with the safety on, treat it like a loaded weapon, never let the tip point at anyone. 4) Use tip protectors when not in use, so you don’t scratch anything. Some spearguns are loaded by resting the butt of the gun on your hip and pulling the bands toward the shaft notches. Others are loaded by resting the butt high on the middle of the chest and pulling the bands toward your sternum. Hip-loading spearguns are commonly used by scuba divers, as chest loading can be difficult when wearing a buoyancy compensator vest. Freedivers are less constricted by gear, so they normally use chest-loading spearguns. These have longer range because the shaft tabs sit closer to the butt of the gun. Now, some loading tips: 1) Wear gloves and wetsuit to prevent slips, scrapes or bruising. Some wetsuits have a loading pad built into the chest. 2) Don’t look down and hunch over when loading the bands. Push forward with your chest and pull the band swiftly with your arms, so the shaft tabs are pushed forward to meet the incoming

band. 3) Use a loading tab (if using a wood gun). This simple device makes things much easier by allowing you to first hip load the band to the loading tab and then raise the butt to your chest for the final pull. Although it’s a two-step process, it can be done quickly and will feel much easier. 4) If your bands are still too hard to load, use three longer bands. 5) Work out, lift weights, work on core and upper body. Try bench presses, seated rows, bent over rows, pushups and pull-ups. Bands and dumbbells can be incorporated into your workout routine, whether at the gym or home. If you want to see a band loading video, check out Coastal Angler online. And remember—you can accomplish anything you set your mind to!

very blade-handy angler has their own techniques and tricks for peeling the perfect fillet off a fish. But anyone who has spent enough time around a cutting board knows the perfect way to fillet is a combination of three crucial elements: technique, tools and practice. Whether it’s a 15-pound red snapper or a 6-ounce bream, the basics of filleting a fish are the same. The idea is to remove the meat along the fish’s flanks, while leaving behind the head, bones and guts. Step 1: Make a vertical cut just behind the fish’s gill plate and pectoral fin. This cut should go all the way down to the bone and

CANGL_FIL1-FIL4.indd 2

extend from back to belly. Step 2: Run the blade from the first cut all the way down the top of the fish, along the backbone to the tail, making a shallow incision as close to the backbone as you can get it. Step 3: Using that long cut along the backbone, utilize smooth, light strokes to work the fillet away from the bones moving from the back to the belly. The other hand can be used to peel back the meat as you go. Cut around the ribcage when you arrive at it. Step 4: With step 3 completed, you should have a beautiful skinon fillet. To remove the skin, place the fillet on the board skin side down. Start from the tail and insert the knife through the meat down to the skin, leaving a tab of meat and skin at the tail to hold onto. Turn the knife horizontal and run the blade up the skin to remove the meat. Step 5: Use tweezers to pick out any pin bones left in the fillet. The technique seems simple enough, but if you don’t have good, sharp, flexible knives that are sized correctly for the fish on the board, you’re going to make a mess out of your fillets. Havalon has come up with an all-in-one solution for this issue with its Talon system. With five styles of high-quality blades that all fit on the same handle, switching from a 7-inch blade down to a 5-incher or even down to a 3.5-inch utility blade is as easy as pressing a button with their Quik-Change II blade replacement system. The blades can be resharpened as well as replaced to make sure they are razor sharp when you need them. Also, with a handle that opens up, clean-up is both thorough and easy with the Havalon Talon system. Rinse your tools down and roll them up in the included canvas kit so they’ll be ready the next time you need them. And next time should be soon, because practice is the final and most important element in the perfect way to fillet. Go fishing enough, and you’ll be peeling off perfect fillets for the table in no time. Check out the Havalon Talon System at www.havalon.com.

If you are reading this article, then chances are you are dreaming about fishing. Heck, we don’t blame you! January is the month to explore deep water pockets and channels in search of big speckled trout. The start of the new year is almost certain to have the trout in full winter habits with the water temperatures at an all-time low and staying there. With the cold weather and cleaner colder water, there are several techniques that can help you increase you luck with cold water specks. It has taken me some time to pull away from the use of live bait while speckled trout fishing. Sometimes, it is hard to fish all day with artificial to only a have a few strikes or a single fish to show for your hard work. One thing I can say about using artificial baits for trout, it forces me to pay attention and connect with the fish like never before. It has taught us many things that we never noticed while using live bait. I now pay attention to variables such as tide movement, moon phases, water temperatures and clarity. Each one of those variables can alter the attitude and appetite of the fish. Some of the techniques that I like to use this time of year are very simple. A small tackle tray or

two can cover almost all of them. Let’s start with one that seems to be the easiest to use and adapt, the soft plastic jig or swimbait. Start off by selecting a couple soft plastic jigs of various colors, a good start point would be chartreuse, pinks, and a darker color. I prefer to carry a few jig/ hook options for this style of fishing. A few different weights of lead jig heads to match the depth and current, such as those made by Gulf Coast Custom Tackle, and a few sizes of weighted hooks to rig the bait weedless. A lighter action rod will help you feel the sometimes soft bite of a cold trout. Start by working the jig in deeper water with a slow bounce, and methodically work your way into shallower depths until you find the fish. Another familiar technique to local trout anglers is the suspending twitchbait. I can not say enough good things about this bait. If you have never thrown it, pick up one or two different styles and have fun! This bait brings so much versatility to the kayak angler. Based on your retrieve and cadence, you are able to work quite a bit of the water column to find the trout. Be mindful that not all twitchbaits are created equal. Some have a faster sink rate than others and some even float. There

are many styles, shapes, sizes and materials out there. So, customize your arsenal and start catching! Remember that winter time trout can be sluggish and down right lazy, and they like dinner the same way. Keeping your baits slowly descending in the water column with a slow cadence can make the difference. When the trout bite slows down for the day, we like to shift gears and move into the creeks and bayous to sight fish for slot redfish. Whether you are a novice or a master at this skill, it is always a very rewarding experience. We like to use a ¼ ounce or lighter jig with various soft plastics. We stand and ease along the marsh banks and grass lines searching for signs of movement or the actual fish. Being as stealthy as possible is a must, noise and movement

can easily spook redfish. Keep your rod close to you while you use your paddle to slowly move around. When you are ready to make a cast, slowly lower paddle, grab your rod and present the bait. With the negative tides we commonly experience in the winter months, you can also take a less direct approach and target small flowing creeks that empty into larger channels. The current will push bait out and redfish will wait in ambush. One thing that most forget about while kayak fishing is safety. Two Hooks Kayak Fishing always promotes safety while on the water. A safety flag, noise making device and PFD are necessary safety items while kayaking. Stay safe and we will see yall on the water!

HUNTING INSHORE Fishing under the Biloxi Ocean Springs Bay Bridge Capt. Bryan K. Cuevas Cell. 228.861.4627 www.teammegabite.com The Highway 90 Biloxi Bay Bridge offers a unique and challenging fishing experience. What makes it unique? Well there’s certainly plenty of structure around the bridge. You can also find depths ranging from 2 - 20 feet of water. There’s plenty of sunken concrete around this bridge. Before you anchor be sure to check your sonar for any debris on the bottom. Don’t be afraid to fish around the sunken concrete. That’s where the big fish hang out. Be prepared to lose some tackle. These big fish will more than likely break your line in the concrete. That is certainly the challenging part of the Bay Bridge. Let’s talk about what hangs out around the bridge. The types of fish you can catch depends on the time of year. During the winter time it’s mostly large

Black Drum and Sheepshead. From time to time you can catch some Redfish and Speckled Trout along with some Flounder. In the spring, summer and fall you can land just about any species at the bridge. Species include Redfish, White Trout, Ground Mullet, Flounder and I’ve even caught Spanish Mackerel there. Here’s the best way I have found to fish the bridge. I anchor close to the pads under the bridge. I see some people fishing from the pads on the bridge, I do not recommend this as it’s dangerous and could be considered trespassing by the DOT. Make sure you maintain a safe distance, but close enough to put a line near the pilings. The best bait for fishing the Biloxi Bay Bridge depends on what you’re fishing for. Of course, in the summertime cut bait live or dead shrimp works great for Redfish, White Trout, Ground Mullet and Flounder. In the winter time the top choice for me is live shrimp. If the water is between 50 and 55 degrees, you may want to break your shrimp in half. The Sheepshead and Black Drum love them that way. Remember make sure you know the rules and regulations on bag limits and fish size. Stay safe and make it a family affair.

Lure of the Month Rapala X-Rap SubWalk I was so honored when I was asked to write the “Lure of the Month” articles, that I decided the first to be a lure I not only use, but that I have caught some very nice 4+lb trout on during this cold time of the year. It is called a Rapala SubWalk. I was given one for testing before Rapala released them about a year ago. At first look, it really didn’t look like much to me and I was hesitant about the single hooks that they come with. Then one day while I was struggling in a popular bayou, I decided to give it a try. It was instantly on! Fish after fish in the same spot that I just threw some of the most proven lures and guess what else, I didn’t lose many fish after they were hooked! At the end of the day I asked myself “why this bait?” Well, in my opinion so many fish are used to the suspending and slow sinking lures that they haven’t seen many lures that dove, darted, and then floated back up to the top. Just about every time after a good 3 twitches, I paused and soon as it started rising, they would hammer it! My favorite colors that I use and keep on the shelf are the Pilchard and the Moss Back Shiner. They come in a 3” and a 4” version and have become a real go to in my cold-water arsenal!

HUNTING OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT

January Report-

extensive maintenance interval

By Nelson Outdoors Pro Derek Stiglet

The new year is here along with the cold, frigid temperatures and high wind conditions that come with the consistent back to back cold fronts. This time of year, tends to make it tough to find a gap in the weather to make a run so I use this time to perform an extensive maintenance interval throughout the boat, engines and the trailer to have it ready for when the season typically begins again in February and March. I tend to begin with a complete service on the engines. On my twin Yamaha F150 4 strokes, I stick to using all the quality Yamalube products that I’ll purchase from the local dealerships such as engine oil, gear case oil, fuel filters and so on. Throughout the year I follow the 100 hr service guide from my user manual. In addition, I’ll go into checking and changing out any spark plugs and continue on with changing the zinc anodes on the engine brackets and lower units and possibly the internal engine anodes if necessary. Inline fuel filters, Fuel lines, fuel/water separators, and injectors are also checked and changed out numerous times throughout the season to prevent fuel contamination. Re greasing the steering arms and all other points along the engines that are affixed with grease fittings is necessary to maintain proper handling and operations of the engines. After the engine maintenance, I’ll begin with the trailer maintenance. Checking for any wiring issues with the trailer lights and re greasing hub bearings or replacing them if needed. From there I’ll continue on with the vessel itself by tightening down any loose hatches or hardware and touching up and/or cleaning any flawed areas in the Awlgrip coating. I’ll finish with up checking and replacing any wiring issues throughout the vessel or switches on the console and checking for faulty bilge pumps or hoses on the thru hull fittings and deck plates and hatches. This extensive maintenance cycle will take plenty of time and physical labor but will pay off and help prevent many issues that could arise throughout the season when the fishing season cranks off.

T

he operations of the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park (ECLSP) have changed over its more than half century of existence. Designated a “no take� marine reserve in 1986, no fishing or taking of any organism (including plants and shells) is allowed. The ECLSP is known internationally for its pristine marine environment and offers visitors exceptional diving and recreational opportunities. Recently the Marine Conservation Institute announced that the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park earned a Platinum Global Ocean Refuge Award. Joining a prestigious group of ten marine protected areas (MPAs) that comprise the Global Ocean Refuge System means that Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park meets the highest science-based standards for biodiversity protection and best practices for management. Each year, thousands of vessels visit and overnight in the ECLSP. Years ago, the Bahamas National Trust introduced a mooring and anchorage system with fees to reduce the impact. A new fee structure will come into force effective Jan. 1. Mooring fees are based on the size of the vessel and range from $20 to $150 per day. Daily/nightly anchorage fees are 50 cents or $1 per foot depending on the length of the vessel. Dive fees are $10 per diver. For more information, visit www.bnt.bs/exuma-cays-land-seapark/.

FRESHWATER

Since 2015, Frabill has continued to set the quiet standard in bucket conversion. The Frabill Whisper Quiet Aerator system is a portable, aeration design that provides the utmost discretion when fishing with live bait. Constructed with 75 years of experience, the Whisper Drive Aeration Motor has been specifically designed and tested to keep saltwater baitfish and crustaceans healthy and active while emitting minimal sound. With a couple of batteries, the Whisper Quiet Aerator converts any size cooler or bucket into an oxygen-rich livewell. Frabill’s top-of-the-line signature yellow air stone creates enough bubbles to effectively aerate up to 15 gallons of water. As a result of its over-engineered rugged design, Frabill’s Whisper Quiet Aerator has a long shelf life. The aeration system includes premium water-resistant internal parts that help prevent corrosion and won’t let an angler down. Never be surprised by battery rot again.

Surprising Winter is the Best Planting Time

I am often asked when is the best time to plant fruiting plants. My answer is usually the same; the best time is 20 years ago or today. The second best time to plant is during the winter months. Plants are dormant, and can be easily shipped and planted with no stress on the plant because there is not a lot of maintenance once the plant or tree has been planted. Simply dig a good hole, water thoroughly

at planting, and take the rest of the winter off. Even though there are no signs of growth above ground, the root systems will have time to get adjusted to their new location and begin to initiate new root growth. There are plenty of advantages of growing your own edibles. First of all, you know what has been done over the course of the growing season from a chemical stand point. Second, the fruit just taste

better coming out of your home orchard versus buying fruit from the grocers that have little to no flavors. Thirdly, it is good for your soul and you will feel more connected to the environment and nature. Whether it is an apple tree, muscadine vine or a blueberry bush; now is the time to plant. Let’s Grow Together. Greg Ison, Ison’s Nursery and Vineyards, 800733-0324, www.isons.com
