The Catch
Barracuda (Great)
Jack Crevalle
Shark (Hammerhead)

Like I have been saying in my last few reports, spring is upon us and the fishing has been steady. When the winds allow it we are still able to get to the snapper and they have been biting good. The mangrove snapper bite has been the best bite with fish being caught anywhere from 2 to 8lbs. The mutton snapper bite is starting to pick up as well and we are starting to catch more keepers then shorts. The past few months we have caught over 100 hundred short mutton snappers, which is a good sign that the population is healthy. We have also been catching some nice sized grouoper but unfortunately we can’t keep them until May 1. The tarpon and snook bites is also getting better and better as we get closer to summer. At night we are still catching tarpon anywhere from 30 to 100lbs, the best part about tarpon fishing is you never know what you have till it jumps out of the water and you get to see exactly how big the fish really is. We are also catching some snook at night as well. Most have been just under slot around 27 1/2 inches but we are also catching some keepers mixed in as well.
