June fishing continues to be strong

Fishing is nothing short of outstanding right now on the reefs and wrecks off of Bradenton. I have never seen such a variety of fish around at any given time. We fished a full day yesterday on mostly live bottom and natural reef structure. The goal was keeper red grouper. Not only did we capture 6 beautiful grouper, we caught sharks, false albacore, lane, vermillion, and mangrove snapper, jack crevalle, and barracuda! We also hooked a nice kingfish and saw 2 cobia. There were massive pods of threadfin herring all over between the beach and the nearshore reefs. Chasing these awesome baits were every game fish in the Gulf! While there are hundreds of tarpon migrating through and eating the threadfin herring, don’t forget about the hundreds of other awesome game fish doing the same thing off the beach. Free lined threadfin and dead sardines on the bottom seem to be the ticket right now. If you want to fill the freezer give us a call! If you want to pull on sharks, false albacore, and jacks! Give us a call! Fishing is great right now!
