Things were all over the place last week! We had some high winds when they were supposed to be calm, and some calm days when it was supposed to be windy. Hit some nearshore reefs for Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Triggerfish, Bonito and King Mackerel. Saw a few Cobia but couldn’t get them to eat. Along the beaches were schools of big jack crevalle and bluefish. Live bait was best for all but the jacks and bluefish. Inlet water is clean and the redfish bite has been a bit slow.
The forecast looks good until mid-week, then we will have some winds and higher seas. Fish the beaches for jacks, bluefish and Bonito with artificial and if you want some Kingfish hit the nearshore reefs with live greenies and slow troll along the reefs. The offshore reefs should have good numbers of Mangrove and Mutton Snapper as well as some AJ, Kingfish and the occasional Mahi. If you can find good numbers of pigfish and croaker, the snook bit is good but the cudas and Jewfish are thick and its hard to get one in without it getting eaten.
