Bait Slow on the Beach

Kingfish action has improved along the beaches this week but the bait situation is still not what we had hoped for. Bait gathering each day has taken longer than it should. Once you get bait things start happening quickly though. Slow troll these on a wire stinger rig. Most of the kingfish are running 20-25 pounds right now. We’ve been finding a few schools of big jack crevalle south of Sebastian. They are not in good numbers yet, but the fish are all in the 20 to 35 pounds range. If you like a fight, these fish will bring it!

In the lagoon, trout, black drum and small snook have been the most common species that we are catching. Live fingerling mullet or shrimp are your best baits. Skitterwalk plugs early and jigs later in the day will usually get these species to strike. Tarpon are due to show up in numbers any day now and we are anxious for their return.
