Fishing this past summer was far from disappointing. The tarpon bite was as good as it has been in recent years, and the snook seem to have bounced back from the freeze that occurred a few years ago. Clients enjoyed fishing both the inshore flats as well as the reefs of the Gulf of Mexico. With football season comes cooler waters and a few small changes in technique. The king mackerel will be making their presence known on the beaches and the snook will start migrating up the rivers. Spanish mackerel, trout, mangrove snapper and redfish are still being caught inside the bay, and we were lucky enough to land a nice blackfin tuna on a recent trip in the Gulf. Fishing this fall and winter should be as good as any we have had in the past few years.
