Good morning, bottom fishing has been the topic of discussion lately. Grouper and amberjack have been very active over the areas wrecks and reefs the last few days. George Hogan reported a catch of some red snapper, one of those snapper weighed in at a whopping 34 #. Kingfish were found along the beach the last few days and live bait was working well on them. A number of folks that I talked to yesterday saw tarpon on the beach but could not get them to take a bait. While the fishing for dolphin has tapered off a little the last couple of days one angler told me of a catch of 6 gaffer dolphin in 150′-200′ on live bait yesterday.
Inshore, snook fishing yesterday dropped off a little although a few were caught and released from the south jetty. Trout fishing in the lagoon around the sand holes continues to produce. Live pigfish and soft plastics have been working on the flats, mostly north in the lagoon.
Have a great day, Donald.
