Trip Summary

Summmer is definitely in full swing and the heat is getting up there with it. Summertime fishing is fun! Most of the time you’re on vacation and spending tons of time at the beach and eating good food. Why not go fishing as well? While its not my favorite time of the year to fish, due to the heat and the bite, it can still definitely be productive. Just like us humans these fish get hot as the temperature rises. Once we get into July and August, the fish start to get lethargic. They dont want to expend the energy chasing bait as much, just due to the water being so warm. However, with the right bait, and tactics you can get them to bite. The biggest factor is timing. Early morning and later evening’s are the best in the summer. After about 11am the bite tends to shut down due to the heat. So getting on it early and later is key. Lastly, if the redfish and trout bite is slow, you can always target spanish mackerel which are a fun fight on light tackle! Hope this report helps and look forward to seein you on the water!
