Clear Water Conditions

The water clarity has been great with the temp just above 86 degrees.  Bait has been around with Cigar minnows, Scaled Sardines and Alewives here most of the week. King catches increased over the past weeks results. A few Spanish were caught. Several Mahi were decked. Schools of Tarpon are passing every day and the bite has increased. Hardtails and Ladyfish were caught most days. Remora have been a nightmare!


The King Mackerel bite has improved with a few hits each day. More fish were missed than caught and “Flipper” got his share too. Bait seemed to get hit more than lures. No big fish were caught as most were “schoolies”. Here is a sample of fish that Jose, Tommy and I caught:

 

 


 

 

Spanish Mackerel catches were good a few days and scarce others. Most fish were above the legal limit with only a few good sized ones Mark and his son Garrett did well one afternoon with at lease a dozen in the cooler.

 

 


A few Mahi hit the deck but less than the past couple of weeks. Nathan got his first ever Mahi. Hai hooked two and decked one. I managed to deck one and Brenda set a new pier record for the smallest Mahi ever. Natural bait and lures got the job done.

 

 


 

 

 

In other action, Ladyfish and Hardtails were regular catches. Lots of Spade fish have been hanging around for a while but no one was targeting them until today. Brandon took the challenge and was able to get a hook in one using a split shot, a small hook and a tiny piece of fresh shrimp.
