‘Morning everybody from the southern most fishing city! Another week has passed, and as we roll into the summer, the fishing is heating up.
Offshore, the dolphin bite has been really going. Watch for the birds, they will show you the way. The grass/weed lines have been pretty scattered, but the birds are always a reliable indicator of where to find the fish. Anything from the color change out to around 550 or so. If your deeper, look for packs of little birds and put one line with a little feather way back for tuna. Lots of blackfin and skippys are around.
Tarpon are still thick in the harbor, but get out there early to capitalize. If a cruise ship comes through, it’ll push these fish out. Permit and bones are also up where you would expect to find them on the edges of the flats.
On the reef, the muttons have been the star of the show. Early afternoon has been the best bite wth the yellowtail and an occasional black or red grouper showing up to play.
That’s about it fishing down here. Remember, keep it simple, have fun and take a kid fishing!
