Offshore fishing has been tough these last couple weeks with high winds and a hurricane system. When people are able to get out, the reports were great. Limits of red snapper have been consistent. There have been several scattered reports of mahi and tuna as well. Mangrove snapper reports have also been phenomenal. Large flounder being caught in about 100ft of water. Slow baits on the bottom are the top choice for flounder. Mangrove snapper can be targeted in the bay as well as offshore, try structure, docks or ledges. Live shrimp are best but frozen or artificial will work as well. Some very nice snook being caught near the passes on the outgoing tides these past couple weeks. Some redfish mixed in as well, with trout reports thinning out with the warmer water temps. Still quite a few tarpon around. Again, focus your attention near those passes.. and your tides will make a huge difference here as well. Fish sightings along the beaches will start to thin out this month as well. These rainy afternoons can be fantastic for freshwater fishing!! Myakka State Park is a local favorite spot for largemouth bass, snook and even juvenile tarpon. Stop in and check out our selection of artificial FRESHWATER baits. Everything from live worms to artificial spiders and birds. We’ve got it all. As always….. Tight lines!!
