The bay fishing has been good. We are still finding some trout when we are able to find the prime baits for trout fishing. The grass flats are starting to hold bait bringing the trout and redfish to the flats. As for fishing structure like docks and the bridges we are still catching a few blackdrum, redfish, and lots of mangrove snappers. If you're wanting to target some big bull reds we have been doing well on the outgoing tide soaking big baits, as well as spot casting them on calm days on the flats and down the beach. With all the bait fish becoming more plentiful the skipjacks, spanish mackerel, and bluefish will make for plenty of action.
Out in the gulf while trolling we are targeting spanish mackerel, king mackerels, and bonitas. This is the time of the year though that the beaches are loaded with bait and you just never know what you may catch trolling like a cobia or mahi mahi. This is the time of the year that the shark fishing is best. We are catching plenty of blacktips and spinners sharks on light tackle on the beaches as well as a variety of bigger sharks on the reefs. Bottom fishing we are targeting trigger fish, vermilion snappers "aka mingos snappers" and white snappers. The red snappers continue to be plentiful and open up on June 11th. As for amberjack and triggerfish they both went out of season starting June 1st be we are catching them for great photos and release them. Give us a call to book your next family fishing adventure while visiting the Destin, Florida area this summer.
