Good morning, I hope everyone's had a good week and is ready for a fun filled weekend. It is suppose to be a little breezy tomorrow, but Sunday is looking a little better. The fishing in the river has been good this week. Snook, trout, and redfish were the target of our local inshore guides, and they did pretty well. Most of them fished live bait, however there were plenty of fish caught on artificial. Slayer Inc soft plastics, and the DOA Airhead have been hot. There were snook caught to fifteen pounds and some nice trout approaching the ten pound class.
The bottom fishing has been incredible this week as well. The mangrove snappers have started their spawn and they are biting. Capt. Glenn Cameron has been catching a limit of mangroves all week consistently. Live bait has been the choice. It has been available to catch on the beach most of the week. Dave Maxwell has also had bait available in the mornings at the inlet. Dolphin fishing has been a little slow, but should be improving as the days go on. Ballyhoo supplies are limited this, so if you like to troll ballyhoo for dolphin be sure to make some room in the freezer and stock up.
Have a good Friday,
