Summary

The seas have been snotty and choppy the last couple days and the fishing (i.e. catching) kind of an anomaly due to water temps and tides. We are catching big fish in shallower water! Got on some big jack crevalle in the harbor 6/8/17 chasing menhaden on the rips near the bridge. Morning is best; Casting top water chuggers to them is an absolute blast.
6/10/17 The near shore bottom bite was strong with a smorgasbord of large red snapper, triggers, porgy, black bass & grouper.
6/13/17 A wee further out to 80 feet and the bite was just as good with the fish just getting bigger. Now is time for the tasty reef critters. The
King mackerel are sporadic. Spade fish come up nearly every trip, but the jelly balls don’t. Don’t be afraid to ask a local shrimp boat discarding by-catch on your way out for some to use. Tip them well!
  I have been catching grouper lately if the weather is right
