Last Weeks Fishing Report
I wish I could tell you that fishing has been great, but that would be stretching it a bit. On the inshore waters of the lagoons, the water is still high and dirty. There are a ton of big mullet everywhere, but finding the schools of smaller bait has been challenging. Because of the nasty water conditions, sight fishing has not been too successful. Luckily, fish locate their prey using sight, sent and sound, so some decent fish can still be taken if you are willing to offer bait, and have the patience to wait them out.

Along the beach and offshore this week, heavy seas have kept most anglers in port. The bait, silver mullet, are in the surf and once the seas settle down and become fishable, he bite should be on. Squally weather has been the dominate factor this week, but we do live in the tropics and it is hurricane season, but things look like they are shaping up for some good fishing, so I'll see you on the water.

As always, if you need information of have any questions, please contact me.

Good luck and good fishing,
