Fishing Report: Hi Folks,
Spanish mackerel fishing is as hot as it gets. Undoubtedly the best spanish fishing in years is happening now. Planers with clarkspoons, bird rigs with clarkspoons and casting with jigs....all are catching nice spanish along the beach.Catching a limit is predictable, but use good sense and conserve.
Inshore: The flounder bite is doing well although the fish are particular about the tide and it seems bait too. Best fishing has been on the incoming tide and the beginning of the falling tide. Best bait has been live menhaden, but if you cannot get the live bait, try GULP on a 1/4 oz. jig. Bait is getting better and better inshore and the reds are showing up with it.
Near Shore: Spanish, spanish and more spanish is the bite! A few cobia are being spotted, but catches are few as yet. Large blues are still around.
Offshore: Kings are biting best around 18-25 miles. Some mahi are biting in the 20-25 mile areas.
Gulfstream: Gulfstream fishing is producing wahoo and nice mahi.
Summer fishing is in full swing now and all indications point toward a banner year. See you on the water.
Let's Go Fishing!!!
