June Report / July Outlook
June’s fishing was very good we had some great and fast action . With the weather temperatures being hot we were leaving the dock at daylight to beat the heat and afternoon thunder storms . The Tarpon fishing was on fire a first light in the morning. The Tarpon we have been catching have been in the in 20 to 50 lb range the baits that we have been working the best have been a red and white lucky 13 which has slow sinking action . The Snook fishing has also been excellent this month with the big Snook moving into the passes and rivers to spawn The Snook fishing was on fire. We had several day were we caught Snook the were in the 12 to 20 lb range .The bait that worked the best were live big threadfins and fresh cut ladyfish Redfishg has remained steady this month most of the Reds we have been catching have been along the beaches and oysters bars A slow jig tip with a shrimp or a live shrimp under a popping cork has been working the best most if the Reds we have been catching have been anywhere between 18 and 24 inches with a few bigger one’s mixed in. The Trout fishing has also been good with the best fishing being in the morning before the temperatures heat up .Most of the Trout we have been catching have been over the grass flats in 3 -5 ft of water the bait we been having our best luck with have been a live pinfish under a popping cork or a jig bounced slowly on the bottom .
July weather is very hot and so is the fishing like June we like to get an early start to beat the heat and the afternoon thunderstorms . Snook fishing should remain good Snook love the warm water temperatures and with the pilchards starting to thin out this time or year the bait we like to use are live finger Mullet . Snook in July can average all different sizes but the bigger ones will be hanging around the mouth the rivers on the falling tides . Redfish will also be on the bite in July .Redfish this time of year like to school up along the outside points and beaches .With shrimp being small this time of year we like to use a fresh cut ladyfish for bait. Another and fun fish we like to fish for this month are Sharks .With the water temperatures reaching the high 80’s the Sharks can provide a lot of great action . Most the sharks we catch will average anywhere from 100 -175 lbs . The bait that’s works the best and we like to use is a live Ladyfish under a balloon. Even no the weather in July can be super hot July fishing can provide fast and great action If you would like to book a trip please give me a call and let me get you in to some great fishing action
