The weather wasn't the only good thing about the past week. The fishing has been excellent most days and a variety of species has been out there feeding on the bait schools. Whether fishing the flats, docks or sea walls, we found the fish willing to cooperate and make for some exciting adventures out on the water. It has been a fun week out there!
Gary was back down in town and we got out on a nice day to fish the river. After spending part of the day trout fishing, we headed up on the flats and Gary caught seven redfish to end a productive day. Ben and his fishing group was up from Miami and we found the fishing outstanding that day. Everything from redfish, trout, snapper to lots of jacks kept the guys busy with plenty of work reeling in fish. Rick and Rob were out for a days fishing and once again the fish were out there. They caught redfish, trout, sheephead and a variety of other fish including lots of jacks that day. Dennis and his son were out to find the fish feeding again. Redfish, trout, snapper and lots of jacks that day. Nic was out later in the week just after a cold front had passed through. The fishing had slowed some, but Nic caught a variety of fish including a nice pompano and a slam of redfish, snook and trout.
Grass flats have been productive for trout. Areas like Harbor Branch, Bear Point and Round Island are some of the better producing flats. CAL jerk baits, DOA shrimp and live bait will get you in on some trout action. Redfish have been hanging around under mangroves or under docks. DOA shrimp or live bait has given us some good battles this week. Snook fishing around the jetties has been good. Some nice slot fish have been taken this week. Live bait, TerrorEyz or feather jigs has been the choice for snook fishermen. Docks have been very active when the bait has been hanging near them. We caught a large variety of fish under the docks this week. Fishing has been good!
Tip of the Week: HAVE FUN OUT THERE ON THE WATER!!
Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Good Fishing and Be Safe!
