Fishing has held up despite the heat, but it’s definitely an early morning bite in most places, then it’s time to retreat to the A/C! Inshore, Snook are still prevalent around docks and mangrove shorelines, and areas where there’s current flowing keep the water temps down and the fish active. Redfish continue to be caught along shoreline edges and mangroves on soft plastics and flies such as sliders and Clouser Minnows. Along the beaches, there’s been plenty of Spanish Mackerel feeding on glass minnows, and Snook are getting more and more plentiful as well. There doesn’t seem to be many big concentrations of bait, so you’ll have to do a fair amount of blind casting to score. Your best bets are bucktail jigs, spoons, and DOA CAL jigs, or flies such as the Polar Fibre Minnow or Clouser Minnows. Nearshore, there have been quite a few Kingfish in close, as well as some Tarpon, mostly feeding on Pilchards and greenies. Offshore, Kingfish are plentiful, again being caught on Pilchards and greenies, while Dolphin fishing has been hit or miss from day to day. With warmer temps returning, bottom fishing for Mangrove and Mutton Snapper and Grouper has been very good. Get out there and enjoy the calm conditions, and stay hydrated!
