On our Inshore bay fishing charters the bite has been good. We have been targeting mangrove snappers heavily as they are one of the best eating fishing both in the bay and the gulf. Along with the mangrove snappers the next main species that we are targeting are redfish. We are catch all ranges of redfish here lately from rat reds, to slot reds to bring home to diner as well as big trophy sized bull reds. If you are wanting to target bull reds we are booking these type trips based on the out going tide. As for the the grass flats they are still holding good amounts of bait bringing a variety of fish to the flats including skipjacks, spanish mackerel, bluefish, and some trout.
Out in the gulf on our near shore gulf charters we are targeting spanish mackerel, king mackerels, and bonitas while trolling. The shark fishing continues to be good with blacktips and spinners sharks on light tackle on the beaches as well as a variety of bigger sharks on the reefs. Red snapper season has come to an end for 2018 so they will be added to the list of species to catch and release. While bottom fishing we are also targeting trigger fish, vermilion snappers "aka mingos snappers" and white snappers. Along with the redsnapper amberjack and triggerfish are both out of season but we are catching them for great catch and release photos. Don't forget amberjacks do open back up on August 1st.
