Post Hurricane Irma fishing has been surprisingly better than anticipated. Big Snook and Redfish are just about eating everything you throw at them. Bait has been ridiculously easy, "one & done" has been the norm. Which makes fishing incredibly easy & more enjoyable for all my anglers! The Bonita and Spanish Mackerel all up and down the beaches destroying glass-minnows, and if you really feel like pulling on something the Black tips and spinner sharks are not far behind them. I have been seeing some of the Stone crab captain's putting out some pots, which means triple tail fishing is around the corner. This is shaping up to be a great fall season for us, so please give us a call and we'd love to get you on the water.
We are on a very nice transition from summer to fall. Baitfish in every size has littered are whole area. Lots of Gamefish still in our region from offshore to inshore. Permit are still patrolling the wrecks in large schools. Lots of Tarpon on the the beaches, with the occasional rouge 100 pounder cruising the beach. Inshore bite has been give or take, with the abundance of rain and fresh water, a lot of the snook & redfish are staying close to the passes.
Gerry and Jim left New York at 4 AM. They were sight casting to tailing permit by 4 PM. We went six for seven on a pretty epic bite!
Tell me those fish aren't so smart they try to lose you at every opportunity. This permit straight swam straight into the wreck to try to break us off! -Capt. Wes Bedell
I think the one we caught yesterday would've eaten this one! Loving these calm hot summer days!
