The Catch
Barracuda (Great)
Snapper (Mangrove)
Shark (Blacktip)

As fishing goes, some weeks are great, and some are very slow and seem to drag along. Last week was one of the tough ones, and the week before was one of the great ones! In the last week of June, the action was hard to beat. Everything we were after, we were catching. On Monday, 6/22 we went after tarpon, which yielded a 100+ pound fish, caught on a catfish tail!

Tuesday, 6/23, we did a half day shark fishing, and landed three nice black tip sharks. Blacktip sharks are super are a very agile species of shark, they make blistering runs, change directions rapidly, and even jump completely out of the water when on the hook! On Wednesday and Thursday, we fished live bait, and were greeted with many hungry fish, mainly snook, with jack crevalle, mangrove snapper, and barracuda mixed in. Big snook were caught on each of these days, which just put the icing on the cake!

It seemed as though the action had ceased over the weekend, and fishing became much tougher. The sharks were not cooperating, and we caught less than half the amount of smaller fish than we were catching the previous week. Not only was the fishing tough, but so was finding good bait to use. Much of the good sized bait fish moved out of the area (likely to spawn), leaving only a few sizable ones around, and a bunch of “micro bait” that are 1-2 inches long, and very difficult to fish with. Though the week was challenging, things were starting to look up by Friday, where we had the best fishing of the week, along with another big 37 inch snook! Definitely a nice way to end the week!
