This week I had International fishing celeb and friend Patrick Sebile call me up and wanted to do some fishing. He was going to be in town for the day and wanted to fish Tampa Bay for the first time.
Patrick has always been cool with me and it’s always good to fish with a friend. Usually when we are on the same boat before I was the camera person for the day but today I was to be the captain.
We met up at sunrise 7am. Patrick having to drive from Ft. Pieced was there on time like a true fisherman should.
Not too long after we launch were greeted with a “full double rainbow all the way.”
Being that Patrick Sebile founder of of Sebile lure was on my boat I wanted to catch fish with his new lure this year the Flat Belly Walker top water lure. The concept of this lure is the ability to have less effort when walking the dog due to it’s flat surface on the bottom.
The lure walked the dog nicely and have nice rattle to it. And at only $6.99 for a Sebile lure it is priced very nice.
Thought I thought it was a bit big, Patrick stuck with the 115mm stick shad the entire morning. He had plenty of sticks and follows but most of them came off.
My first game fish on the Flat Belly Walker was this beautiful 37″ snook.
This day the bite was consistent but the fish was not aggressive due the slow flowing out going tide we had to fish in.
About lunch time we called it a good day of catching up and of course fishing. I will do my best to try to fish the east coast soon and hopefully catch a little bit of the mullet run before it’s all over.
