Good morning, yesterday the offshore fishing was on the quite side. Water temperature was around 76 degrees and a ground swell had the water a little on the cloudy side. Divers are reporting good numbers of fish on the bottom. Billy Crittenden was in this morning and their last dive they had grouper, snapper, cobia and hogfish. They were diving in relatively shallow water on the patch reefs. Bottom fishing for mangrove snapper has been good offshore and amberjack on the wrecks are still plentiful.
Inshore, there are tarpon on the beach working over bait pods mostly south towards the nuclear plant. The inlet and the turning basin are full of snook and are active early in the morning and into the evening. Live bait and jigs are working well and with some predicted rain today and tomorrow Taylor Creek should kick off again. The mangrove snapper fishing is good inside as well along the channel edges, the inlet and the turning basin.
Have a great day, Donald.
