Wading question - did you guys use long stringers or the floating donut-nets? I'm bringing both and wondered if sharks were much of a problem. Any recommendations?

There was a mixture. Nobody's fish got bumped/tugged/stolen to my knowledge.

I switched from a stringer to a donet a few years back... Sometimes and especially around the pass(es), sharks can be a real pest. Heard horror stories about big sharks getting tangled in the donet things, but I've never had an issue and haven't lost a fish since switching to it... even used in the surf pretty easily. If you use a stringer, I'd suggest a 25 footer and be mindful of it floating up around your legs... If it has fish on it, keep it away from your body...

I use 12' stringers from the bay to the islands. I have 3 do-nets that havent even been in the water. I dont like a bunch of crap dragging in the water. A net is already too much sometimes

I've had a few donets destroyed by sharks. I had one completely bit off about 9" under the float. The whole bag with 18 trout in it by a BIG shark. It is a floating chum bag. If you want to keep sharks from eating your fish you need a shark bucket. They work great.

I switched to one of these mesh bags for that very reason. I love it because it is collapsable too. Still not shark proof, but a good middle of the road solution between a donut and bucket.

Does anybody know if they sell replacement nets for the do-nets? I had a shark bite a hole in mine last year at the islands and just did a quick repair with zip-ties and fishing line. I have a trip planned to go back to the islands next month so I'm trying to find a replacement.

If you can't find one let me know. I think I have a spare do-net in my boat shed in Sargent. I'll take a look for it.

You can make your own. It is literally a bucket or storage tote with holes drilled in it and pool noodle floats around the top.

Lol...I try. I'm not going to lie, they have had me screaming like a girl a time or two. Especially in dirty water, I don't trust them at all. I like eating trout too much to loose them to those *******s though.

We have had a few wade trips in west bay where the sharks were so bad that we would walk each fish back to the boat holding them out of the water. The fishing was so good we just couldn't leave though.

I have a funny story about this. I took a guy wading the surf and the sharks were horrible. He pull his stringer close to him so he could keep um off. On of the sharks came between his legs to get to his stringer needless to say he left the water

While we were there I was off fishing a cove on the back side new harbor island when I saw a wake come at me in knee deep water. I thought it was a redfish at first but then I thought no itís too big, maybe a drum but took off fast and thatís when I knew it wasnít a drum. Sucker made a turn and came right at me and just made a 90 the other way and kept going. Probably a 6í shark, and fast. Never saw a fin or tail though.

We have some kids hoping to hook up with some nice sharks. Sounds like bay side and surf side both hold them? I imagine if you hook a big one from a skiff it is a sleigh ride. If I had one go through my legs like described above my stringer would definitely shrink.

Sharks should be easy to catch, they are everywhere. When I was wading the surf I had a 6-8í hammerhead swim right by me. I hooked several on plastics. If you can come up with some bait, it should be all you want.

From what Doug said about the abundance of trophy hardheads it sounds like you could turn a fishbite into a hardhead into some cut bait if we can’t cast net anything.

Also, anyone fish gulp under a popping cork or would that be catfish city?

Itís lock and load on the hardheads. They hit plastics. I would take some flies or sabikis, there are lots of little fish that hang around the boat lights at night you could use for bait.

Fun! Mini-tarpon! If surf is flat is there a pass that you can take your skiff through to get to it?

Yes, its like any other pass though, bars and guts change.

There is also a mile of beach on the opposite side of the surf you can park on and walk across. Theres also some guts up north you and motor into and get over. Most arent that much of a walk to the surf

Check under the birds in open water. Me and Bobby got into some monster lady fish under some. Also had sharks in there because I had one bit in half and about got stripped by another. Fun times!

I agree when your trying to catch real fish! We played with them for 10 or 15 minutes that first morning. I like the way they jump. He's bringing kids so bet they would have a blast.

LOL

My wife and I found a school a few 100 yards from the pass. It hadnt been that great so we decided to mess with them for a minute. She had one at the boat and I was bending over to grab it with a boga to keep it from thrashing all over the skiff. As she was leading the fish toward me something HUGE swiped at it right at the boat. I mean close enough to shower me with saltwater.

Shes all yelling to get the skipjack off her line so she can catch whatever was trying to eat it and Im no longer willing to get anywhere near the flapping fish. End up getting the skipjack in the boat and give it a quick thump in the head and throw it back hoping jaws would come eat it. Never happened.

I hooked a big skipjack out there this last trip & right in front of me the fish goes berserk. Then water looks like a washing machine. Figured I am gonna pay the tax man now. Something grabs the skip & takes off. I am thinking dang cut it off before I get spooled. I crank down on the reel to break off & the line goes limp ,but still weight on it. Figured the shark must have bit it in half finally ,but usually wouldn't take that long. I reeled in expecting part of a fish & still have the whole fish. It had a few cuts on it ,but looked like it had been scaled on both sides. Guessing a big jack or such must have grabbed it being it wasn't cut off.

Tried it for about 5 minutes for grins. After 3 hardheads I went back to a lure, and after a few trout caught a hardhead...Got bored and threw fishbites in the surf. Was standing on dry land and bent down to adjust my boot. Fishbite dipped in the water and I pretty much cane poled a hardhead. I don't think bait matters, you are gonna have to deal with the slimy bastages eventually.

Yes if we see any birds working we are on them. Trophy ladyfish are a good time for some of the kiddos on this trip. Some are a little more hard-core.
