Fishing Report August 1, 2017
We are in the middle of summer, and it seems the fishing has been as hot as the weather. With air temperatures in the mid 90's and the water temps not far behind, we have been targeting fish out in the Gulf of Mexico when the winds have allowed.
The permit, cobia and sharks have been hungry in about 40 to 60 feet of water. The occasional bonito and kingfish have been bending some rods as well.
Inshore, the snook bite has been great all year. It has been a pleasure to see that species rebound as well as it has. The trout have been cooperating in 4 to 6 feet of water with jacks and ladyfish mixed in, and the redfish are getting ready to school up in the shallows. With the hot temperatures forecasted for the next month or so, we recommend fishing early or late in the day. Give us a call to schedule a charter... and let us show you a great time on the water!
