End of July

July fishing has been nothing short of amazing. The water is clean and beautiful and fishing has been second to none, with an emphasis on snook. We have been doing a combination of fishing around structure, such as docks and bridges, and drifting near the passes in order to target snook. Each fishing charter has been producing a lot of average sized snook, with plenty of opportunities for landing a trophy fish as well.

The red fishing has also been great. They can be targeted in the same spots as the snook, or specifically targeted in the mangroves when the tide is high. The fishing charters have also had big success with nice sized trout while fishing the flats. Many times while drifting the flats catching trout we have been finding large schools of jack crevalle and lady fish. These fish have kept the drags screaming while waiting on the tide to change and getting back to snook fishing.

Last but not least, for my fishing charters wanting to bring some dinner home, we have been targeting mangrove snapper and having a lot of success. Those have been targeted by drifting over structure in 20-30′ of water with live bait. Some snapper by catch has been gag and red grouper as well. This month has been excellent with many fishing charters getting an inshore slam while still having time either catch snapper for diner or go to the beach to relax. Take advantage of the best this fishery has to offer and book a fishing charter now.
