Trip Summary

August is fairly slow this time of year in South Florida. Most of the people are on vacation up north and the fishery tends to get little pressure. The days are usually hot and rainy but cloud cover and wind usually balances that out. The fish seem to enjoy the lack of pressure and can be found in places not normally seen during the cooler winter months. I am convinced the fishing is better in the summer months. This August I've found a few new Goliath Grouper spots and also some new redfish areas. The big snook have been further offshore than usual due to the high water temperatures but are still coming in to spawn on the full and new moons.
