Latest Fishing News
Well fishing fans it’s been hot, and I’m not necessarily talking about the fishing. Although the early morning bite has been very good, it’s just been too damned hot to stay out for long. The bait has shown up at the mouth of the river and it is really easy to get plenty.
Nice trout on the grass in the 3′-5′ depth and some nice reds are starting to show up on the flats. This past week while fishing w/ one of our best guests, Billy Sexton, we landed several blacktip sharks just off the mouth of the river, using pin fish. From what I hear the sharks are everywhere. Nancy (Billy’s wife) landed a nice cobia by the port;
cooked it up w/ onions, peppers and capers, a splash of wine and a little olive oil. It was out of this world. Tons of Spanish macs all over the bay w/ an occasional kingfish. Grouper are still hanging around structure, as are the mangrove snapper. The water has not been clear; more like coffee; but hasn’t slowed the early bite. Things get active again late in the day with some great action.
Dont forget: the IFA Redfish Tournament will be at Pirates Pointe Aug. 21st, so if you’re coming, you need to book a room now. September 18th and 19th will see the first annual Onshore-Offshore Magazine/ Pirates Pointe Flats Tournament.
