Fishing Report January 11, 2017  

Now that we are in the middle of winter, fishing has changed! Over the past few weeks, with water temperatures in the low 70's to mid 60's, white bait is not always the number one choice for the species targeted. Shrimp, squid and cut bait seem to be getting the job done when the whitebait doesn’t work. Recently, fishing has been productive when the weather has cooperated. Inshore, the snook and redfish bite has been hot. Tripletail have continued to make an appearance off the beaches, and we managed to put some quality grouper on ice before the end of the season. On the nearshore reefs, cobia and bonito have provided some intense action for our customers. These next few weeks should provide some quality redfish and trout on the flats, as well as sheepshead around the docks and local reefs. If you're interested in booking a charter, give Capt. Jon or Capt. Russ a call.
