Greetings fellow fishing fans, and welcome to this article!
The heat both in the air and water have been right up there with the usual hottest summer temperatures.
Bonitos are everywhere in the water column eating anything that moves. What an amazing fish! They fight as hard as any glamour fish you can name, even though they are not really good table fare.
So please don’t gaff or harm them. They are easily revived if you launch them into the water head first straight down. Thank you. They are such a valuable resource to the sport, and fly-fisherman.
Blackfin tuna travel and feed with the bonito, so don’t be surprised when you score one. They are tasty.
Coming into the August full moon, early birds and late afternoon deep trolling are your best shot for a wahoo. They will also hit surface with live, and dead baits.
The sailfish action has slowed some, but they are still here in about 200 feet of water. Live bait is best.
Kingfish made an appearance on the “Hi-Bar”. Most are small.
The mangrove, yellowtail, and mutton snapper bite has been hot recently, and the bite should continue.
Snook fishing is all catch-and-release now, and there have been some fish around. However, some days they just won’t bite. That may be because of the up-welling causing an extreme water temperature change overnight.
Greetings fellow fishing fans and I give you the latest fishing report. My objective here is to give readers an accurate report of the local fishing, no stretching.
The last few trips most of the pros have been catching and releasing some sailfish, sometimes multiples, with some really big fish mixed in. We had one recently that looked like a Pacific size sail. Black fin tuna are out there in the Gulf Stream. However, they have been running small. Like false albacore they are eating bait fish and some select flys.
Also, the shark fishing has been epic, we have caught and released sandbar, bull, dusky, hammerhead, silky, and saw a big tiger.
Tarpon fishing has been on and off, with some fish really sizable. Be prepared to run and gun a long way, if interested. The poons will eat live bait, and fly’s when they are in the mood.
Snook fishing has also been hot and cold from day to day depending on water temp and quality.
