This week has been some really steady fishing, still some snook and large tarpon around when the bait has been existent. There have been some decent flounder and snapper around as well! Unfortunately, with all the activity going on in the Atlantic, we’re going to see a little larger seas and probably a little change in the fishing.
The mullet are finally starting to roll in and the inshore bite remains good on everything from redfish and drum, to snook, and some nice seatrout, and this is something I will be putting more attention to within the next week! With all the mullet around the topwater bite should get nothing but better. Working small Rapala skitterwalks around the finger mullet pods early should produce some nice sea trout and even some good redfish. It’s not uncommon this time of the year to find the juvenile tarpon on the flats early as well, these fish usually range anywhere between 5 and 25 pounds and are a great fight on light tackle! It should be a great week to change it up and hit the shallows. Again, in the river I strongly suggest catch and release! I will be doing so with all of my charters.
