The nearshore bite this week has been very good. Live bait like menhaden, pilchards and greenies have been working very well on a variety of species including tarpon, cobia, Jack crevalle, barracuda and king mackerel. This action should continue to get stronger as we near the next full moon phase.
In the lagoons, bull shark, tarpon, sailcats, speckled trout and black drum have been the top targets this week. Live pilchards and mullet are best for the first four species and the drum are hitting cut crab or fresh shrimp on a sliding sinker rig or jig head. Many of the drum and trout are holding extremely tight to the shorelines, so don’t be afraid to get as shallow as your boat will let you. Fly anglers can also throw snook and juvenile tarpon into the mix when fishing around creek outflows and residential canals.
It’s shaping up to be a great summer of fishing so if you’re interested in getting out with us on one of these types of fishing charters please go to our website or give us a call at 321-636-3728 for more information and to book your adventure.
