The bottom fishing has been great! I’ve had good reports from both the offshore bar and 27 fathoms. As Scott reported, good catches of groupers and snappers are still being caught on both live bait and Butterfly jigs. The trolling however has been a bit slower. Several boats fished over the weekend and didn’t do that well. The Twenty and the Ohana Fished Sunday and each caught a sail and some dolphins. I fished the Nelsheen and caught 1 out of 2 sails the same day. We all fished from the mid to upper 300s on the loran in 100′-200′ on some scattered edges.
The inshore still hasn’t changed much, except the catch of some pompanos. Sam Cructhfeild caught 9 on jigs yesterday and he and Scott are in the river now trying to catch a few more.
