Good morning, Devin Moberg reported that he caught kingfish in 60 feet of water yesterday at the high drop. He said he was using live bait to catch the kingfish all of them were about 15#. We also received some reports of scattered dolphin and some very large sailfish. The sailfish have been taking ballyhoo and they are not numerous but they are around. Some of the dolphin have been caught in shallow water from about 55′ scattered to 200′. One angler will complain that they had a lousy day, catching hardly anything and the next person you talk to had a good day catching a number of dolphin and kingfish.
Inshore, live bait has been producing good catches of trout and snook in the lagoon the last couple of days. Capt. Bruddy Tyson reported yesterday that he has guided his charters to a good mix of fish all on live bait. Mike Bunnell reported a good catch of trout yesterday wading in the lagoon. Mike was tossing artificials of various types including DOA cal minnows. Mangrove snapper are moving into the lagoon and can be found along the edges of the intracoastal and near area bridges. We are also hearing of some tarpon moving into the inlet and along the beaches.
Have a great day, Donald.
