With Dorian heading this way, fishing anywhere on the outside is a closing window, but it’s good for now. Fishing offshore for Dolphin and Kingfish has been good in 80′-90′ of water, and night time snapper fishing has also been good. The Snook bite in the inlets has been good, and the rougher weather typically turns them on. Snook season opens after midnight Saturday night. The swell and seaweed has made beach fishing pretty difficult in most places, but there is still bait and Snook and Tarpon along the beaches if you can find a suitable stretch of beach. Inshore, the upcoming rains should get the relief canals and culverts flowing, so Snook and baby Tarpon should be waiting for what comes out. Smaller swimbaits and flies should do the trick . Stay safe out there.
