Bunker have been easier to find this week. Try in the back basins and as far as the steeple. We did find some north of the tip as well. Take the bunker out to Pelican on the 750 line and put them on a king stinger rigs, add a duster if needed.
Happy 4th of July! I have been getting many calls on the red snapper season. Read the FWC rules. No matter how confusing it is, they are NOT open on our coast! It says Gulf State, does that mean in the gulf and in the state? Lol.
It’s been a very good week fishing again, use your favorite kingfish stinger rigs and get to the reefs with frozen cigar minnows (unless you can find the bunker on the beach.) Hook the minnows or bunker through the nostrils. Slow troll at less than 2 knots.
What a week we have had, go deep for the big boys! Make sure you leave with heavy duty rods and the 6/0 reels, you need power to get these fish turned. I would recommend 120lb. leader and 9/0 triple strength hooks. The bigger the baits, the better you will do.
