Eleuthera Report 1/13-1/20/2013

Good afternoon everyone.

Here's a short report regarding Eleuthera last week.

Temps were low 70's to 81 with strong (12-17 mph) easterlies finishing up with a northerly which brought in a squall.

Overall it was more of week of exploring rather than catching a lot of fish. The Atlantic side was blowing too hard for sight fishing and too tiresome to blind cast.

It wasn't all bad. Caught my largest so far at 23"-24" and estimated at 6.5 lbs in Savannah Sound and another near that size at Rock Sound the following day.

Tried the flats on the south side of the road that leads to Windermere Island. It looks very fishing with lots of sign and has a bottom similar to deep creek. Hooked many small baracuda there but no bones. And no sightings either. I'll keep trying it.

Deep Creek didn't produce for me either but I didn't have a chance to spend the right amount of time there. It was tough everywhere.

Overall caught runners, grunts and a large mutton snapper and even a 7 inch turbot (looks like a flounder) in the creek connecting Winding Bay with Half Sound. The bones I caught were large and it seemed like very few fish were around. It may have been colder temps but not sure.

I got a follow from a 3.5' baracuda at Savannah Sound with a refusal.

Maybe another trip in March or Arpil will bring more luck.

Another few months and the stripers will be back.

Marty
