Fishing has really started to break loose in the last couple weeks! With relatively calm conditions, bait has been more and more plentiful every day. Easy bait is never a bad thing! As for the fish that are taking the bait, they are cooperating more and more as well. Fish are holding on mangrove islands and points that have good current flow, and are looking up tide for an easy meal. We are catching as many as 20 snook per trip, anywhere from 16-36 inches long.The redfish bite seems to be improving as well, anglers are getting a couple chances to do battle with nice reds nearly every trip. Most fish are between 20 and 30 inches. Along with the snook and redfish, we are catching jack crevalle of all sizes, mangrove snapper, gag grouper, goliath grouper, and the tarpon and sharks are beginning to get very active as well!
