Fishing report for the lower Key's

Trip Info

The Catch
Snapper (Mangrove)

Well the unusual July winds are blowing here in the keys and all along the east coast of Florida. Our typical weather pattern is light winds with calm seas but the high pressure that’s been sitting off Florida’s east coast has been making for some rough boating.
The mangrove snappers are bighting and the usual suspects such as sharks and jacks are plentiful. Looks as though the wind may start to subside a little come the weekend and hopefully the bite will be on. 
We’ll be looking to get out onto the reef and do some yellowtail snapper fishing once the winds die out a little, hopefully this weekend!
