Here is a brief report on the area fishing.
It was a hot season for sure, with temps well over 100 most days. We had to start out early and quit around 10am to avoid the unbearable heat. I ran some doubles and those days were brutal when it really got hot. Those afternoon trips were hot, but we still caught some fish, and we even went after some shark, as they will bite even on the warmest days.
So here is my Conservation minute: With so many boats fishing for sheepshead, I try to encourage my clients to keep only what they plan to eat that day or next. During the spring season, these fish are full of row, and to ensure that we have future fish for future fishing generations, we should exercise some self-restraint and take home only what we can use.
I’m so excited that fall is almost here, because not only does it mean cooler temps, thank goodness, but also some very good speckled trout and red fishing.
Tight lines everyone,
