The Catch
Grouper (Goliath)
Jack Crevalle
Snapper (Mangrove)

The waters have warmed up quite a bit since my last report, and some bigger and more aggressive fish have started to bite! The water temps in the gulf have been in the low to mid 70s for a couple weeks now, and the back bays are a little warmer still. We have transitioned back to fishing with live bait fish and are getting steady action on most days. The primary catches have been snook and jack crevalle of all sizes, but a few other species are finding the baits as well, such as tarpon, redfish, mangrove snapper, and a couple small goliath grouper.
