Well sort of a mixed week with the weather, but all I all it has been a pretty
nice week in spite of the wind. It just depends on where you are fishing and how.
Off shore that east wind moved the grass and the Dolphin up closer, not big fish
but plenty of them to sort thru. Many anglers reported slow for dragging baits, well we
didn’t have to travel to far, thank you for the wind. Now if you were paying attention
you would have noticed some thing was going on at the edged, live baits found them.
These fish were below the grass edges, live baits got their attention, lots of small but if
you put a little weight on your leader and got your bait deeper that is where the fish were
feeding. Fifteen to twenty pound Dolphin, had to sort thru them but they were there and it
all started up close. Bottom fish was the call, lots of sardines went out this week. Favored
depth was 60/125’ and putting a sardine down got their attention. It seemed like a lot of
wind for the week end as a mater of fact a little to much for this old man but if you didn’t
mind the rock and roll it was a good day.
Fishing the week end it was D.O.A.. time with 110 entries, that’s a lot of sped bumps.
Wish I could tell you more but just not in the loop, next week we will have it all. Trout
has been the target and these fish were glad to take your baits, Power Plant area was busy
anglers fishing early had the best bite then moving it to the shaded water was next. If you
are looking please fish early, it is summer the water is warm. Fish the coolest part of the day,
sun up, put a shrimp on a jig and hang on. Snook have been every where from docks to open
water and the interesting part is they are feeding all day. Yes early or gray hours have been best
but we have heard about plenty all day. Slot size has been the problem, anglers are talking
about a lot of fish just not in the slot. With the Stuart Causeway closed for the week end I did not
hear about Tarpon or big Jacks in the inlet but we know they were there. Boat racing sure cuts
into lot of information that I know we missed, high speed trolling, we will have to look into that.
Plenty of fish at the causeway , good Snapper bite and plenty of Drum to keep busy with and
watch that slot on the Snook.
Plenty of Snook in the surf, if it moves they want a bite. Wind has played havoc on the
surf anglers and it seems it has been east wind all week. In spite of the wind the Whiting
have kept a lot of angers busy, so do not forget the ice. Size 4/0 live bait hook on a small
whiting will find plenty of action, I said action not slot size. I wonder how the boat racing
