August 2003
Gulf of Mexico

Gulf of Mexico - by Steve Powell & Chris Sapp

August is here and it is HOT.  The fish will be deeper on the offshore towers and wrecks.  Grouper, snapper, AJs, cobia and kings will all be offshore in the deeper water Summer time is here and it is hot.

For a great trip on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, contact Chuck Mansfield at Carrabelle Fish and Dive located in Carrabelle, FL off Hwy. 98 at the Moorings Marina.  To get to Carrabelle, take Hwy. 319 south from Tallahassee and follow U.S. 98 West.  The Moorings Marina is on your left just before the bridge. 

Carrabelle Fish and Dive can provide you with the Florida Panhandle’s best deep  sea fishing, offshore fishing, trolling, bottom fishing, overnight trips,

spear fishing or diving.  They do it all!  They are U.S.C.G. licensed and Coast Guard approved.  You will really have an exciting time.  Give them a call at 850-697-8765 today!

So you like to go offshore and bottom fish or troll the Gulf?  Well, here’s your guy!  Captain Randy Jossey owner of Seawolf Charters can sure get the job done for you by putting you on the fish.  Randy is U.S.C.G. licensed.  He furnishes the boat, of course, license, tackle, ice and the fish.  His rates are very fair at $125.00 per person with a 4 person minimum.  Spring is here and it’s time to hit the Gulf of Mexico.  Call today at 229-435-6326 and book your trip.  He’s filling up fast.  Seawolf Charters is located at 2019 Lighthouse Rd., Carrabelle, Florida 32322.

Capt. Tom Stephens of Top Notch Offshore Sportfishing writes, “This month has produced some great catches and has been one of the most fun months I have ever had. Not only have the fish been biting but the people I have taken out have been great folks on the boat.  The weather patterns have been a little strange as we are still having fronts move through the area and cause some windy conditions. August fishing should be great for grouper, snapper, amberjack, kingfish and near shore fish such as trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish and of course a great fish, the tarpon. Tarpon season is here now. If you haven’t booked a tarpon trip do not wait until the last minute as I am already getting filled up.”   You will not find a Captain with a better attitude or more knowledge about fishing or the charter fishing business.  His personal goal on every trip is that everyone has a fun and enjoyable trip.  If you want to have fun and catch  fish, give Captain Tom a call at 850-566-9312 or go to his web site at

Scallop season opened on July 1st and runs until September 10th.   Good reports of scallops are starting to come in from Lanark and St. Joe Bay.  Check out the waters between Suwannee and Mexico Beach for a good way to cool off from this summer heat.   Check all your safety gear before you head out. Now that hot weather is here, pay particular attention to the strong thunderstorms that can come up in the Gulf so suddenly.  Pay close attention to the forecast, and head in at the first sign of an approaching storm.  It’s just not worth the risk. Until next month, stay safe and keep only what you can use.
