Good morning, the weather yesterday kept most boats in port. Wind and rain in the forecast from yesterday through the weekend has been playing havoc with any fishing reports. Water temperature yesterday dropped to 69 degrees and trolling and live bait fisherman had trouble finding any fish willing to cooperate.
Inshore, reports are steady for snook and mangrove snapper. Catch and release for snook until the season opens in September. The brackish water in the lagoon caused by storm water runoff will hamper some species and actually improve the snook and snapper bite. Look to the channel edges and around the bridges for some action into the summer rainy season.
ATTENTION: Our archery department will have an introduction and demonstration for crossbows from our Ten Point crossbow representative Matt Monks on Saturday July 23, from 9:00 a.m. Be sure and plan to attend.
Have a good weekend. Kadri.
