Steve put his crew on the meat this past Saturday. It’s pretty safe to say that the dolphin are here!

Full Moon Shut Down Offshore Bite
May 22, 2022

This week wasn’t as good as last week at all. We went for 3 or 4 days with hardly a bite. Only thing we can think of was the full moon. It brought in a pile of scattered weeds and shut the ocean down. It’s definitely coming back each day, though. For what it’s worth, the bottom fishing has been better than trolling.

Offshore & Nearshore this Week
May 17, 2022

I fished both nearshore and offshore this week. The dolphin bite has been the best we’ve seen in a few years, for sure. The winds and late fronts have kept the fish around for the last few weeks. The snapper and Cobia bite has been good, as well, for sure. Closer to shore, there’s been some good action with jacks, mackerel, and plenty of sharks.

Topwater Providing Some Exciting Blow-ups!
May 16, 2022

As we near the end of this segment of snook season, I’m happy to report the bite is still good! The top-water bite is steady for snook, jacks and an occasional gator trout in the backwater jungles north of town.

Snook, Tarpon, Jack, Kings, Sharks…
May 16, 2022

The snook bite is pretty good at the inlets this week. Live pogies, pilchards, greenies and majorra are the top live baits to try for them. Along the beaches, shark, tarpon, jack and king mackerel are striking slow trolled live baits. For the tarpon and jack, 60 to 80 pound test leaders and a VMC 7/0 circle hook work best. For the kings and sharks you will need to add a short piece of wire to this rig.

Bluegill to Start Spawning
May 16, 2022

Water levels are way down on Garcia as I’m sitting in the water starting my day. Last night’s full moon should get the bluegill to start their spawning. Stick Marsh is fishing greatm, but an early start on the water will be the best opportunity for a fun topwater bite as the Shad are quite active.

Spare Yourself the Fake Fleas
May 16, 2022

Hit the beach on Saturday to see what’s happening in the surf. I’ve had poor luck lately finding sand fleas, so I decided to try the artificial Gulp variety. I wasn’t impressed, and neither were the fish.

Scamp, Gag, Flounder…
May 16, 2022

FSFA Club member, Chris Pashos, really got into some fish this week! On Monday he boated a nice a scamp and gag grouper on some slow pitch jigging. Not to one-up the door mat he caught earlier this week. Nice fishing, Chris!

Purchase a Lagoon-friendly Plant
May 15, 2022

Have you ever noticed a body of water that looks brown or discolored? A culprit may be fertilizer. Fertilizer starts off in our yards but can be washed by rain or excess irrigation into storm drains, ditches, streams, or rivers — and eventually in the Lagoon.
