INSHORE - The inshore fishing has been off a little due to the
water & weather conditions. Hopefully that will change soon.
The snapper bite along the channel edges has been about the best
thing going. Use a live shrimp with a 1/2oz. lead and a #2 hook.
Most of the fish have been 1 to 2 pounds. Try fishing the tide
changes for the redfish up around the Old Inlet and Snapper Cut.
Again, a live shrimp fished under a popping cork will be hard to
beat. The catch and release snook action has been good on the falling
tide for anglers using a pilchard, greenie or a mullet - that is
if you can find some.
OFFSHORE - The offshore fishing ahs also been slow this week due
to the conditions but, I did have a few reports of scattered dolphin
being caught in 90 to 140 feet of water and they were taking ballyhoo.
There have been a few sails in that same area. The bottom fishing
has been steady in 50 to 90 feet of water for snapper, grouper
and cobia. All have been taking cut baits. The kingfish have been
caught in 50 to 80 feet of water and taking spoons or strip baits
or a live bait if you are lucky enough to find some.
