Good afternoon everyone! This will be the first of many to come White’s Tackle Fishing Reports. We are finally feeling the makings of winter weather and the fishing has been pretty decent.
Offshore We have had reports today and yesterday of multiple sailfish releases. Sounds like the water is pretty dirty all the way out to 250′ but there has been good amounts of bait in the 130′ area holding the first waves of migrating sails. There have been decent amounts of dolphin mixed in as well, so all in all pretty good early winter fishing if you can get out.
As far as Inshore goes, the water has cooled quite a bit this week. Snook fishing has been good at both bridges as well as the inlet and turning basin. Up until the wind moved in last week the redfishing has been as good as it gets for our area. They have been on both the East and West shorelines from North Bridge all the way to Round Island. We may give it a shot in the morning to see if they are still close by. By the way they have had a hard time turning down Gulp jerk shads and spoons! We also heard of a few pompano showing up towards the power plant and they should continue to get thicker this month and next. The water has cleared dramatically the last two days so inshore fishing should be good the rest of the week and weekend.
It looks like it will be a little sporty the remainder of the week and weekend but should be fishable, 2-4’/3-5′. Make sure and stop by the store and get your sailfish tackle in order. We just received a large shipment of dredges, islanders, snaps, etc. as well as kites and live bait accessories. We also received an order of Grunden’s (bibs and foul weather gear) and some new White’s Tackle Long sleeve T-shirts.
Have a great evening!
