Good morning, reports from offshore continue to trickle in. Fish remain scattered over a wide area along our coast. Anglers are finding a few dolphin, kingfish, wahoo, sailfish and bonito trolling ballly-hoo and live bait. The stage is set for cobia to show along our coast and folks have been preparing their tackle needs to chase after the tasty critters. Near shore spanish mackerel and a few bluefish can be found and caught with spoons and gotchas.
Inshore, pompano are still in our inlet and can be caught on Buccaneer Wigglers and pompano jigs. Natural baits like sand fleas and clam strips also work well on the pompano. Anglers are finding success with sand perch, snapper and black margate along the catwalk of the south bridge. Since we have not had any real cold weather, there are still plenty of snook to tangle with along the south side of the inlet. Try a Yo-Zuri Crystal 3-D minnow when snook season opens on Wednesday February 1, they have been producing good catches after sunset. This week was good for trout fishing in the lagoon with some of the trout caught weighing in at over 5lbs.
Drop by our shop for all your snook fishing needs. We just received a new shipment of nylon hair for all you folks that like to tie your own snook and cobia jigs.
Have a terrific week end, Donald.
