The Gulf of Mexico really came to life this week! Offshore reports are stacked with wahoo, big red snapper at about 200′, scamp and yellowtails as well. Two massive cubera snapper were caught during the Snapper Slapper tournament last week. Monsters! Jumbo mangrove snapper have been reported non stop from 8lbs to 10. African pompano, sailfish and mahi mahi were being reported from 50mi. Some cobia on the nearshore wrecks but reports have been spotty. Tarpon have picked back up after some spawning action on the last moon but have been steady all week. Pinfish are the bait of choice at the moment but you may want to still dip crabs when you can. Inshore snook and redfish action have been HOT!! There have been some snook on the beach and the reds have been decent sized on the flats. Night fishing has been fantastic with juvenile tarpon, mangs and snook on the lights.

Wishing a safe and Happy Fourth of July to all!! Tight Lines!
