We’re settling nicely into our summer pattern of single-digit wind speeds and calm seas, which portends well for offshore fishing.
On the wrecks
The artificial reefs in 100 to 120 feet of water are holding permit. One of the most challenging fish to fool, permit are strong, stubborn fighters. These fish are spawning, so please take care to release them unharmed.
On the reef
On the reef, the snapper bite is excellent, with some very large muttons showing in the slicks. There are loads of yellowtails of all sizes on the patches an out to 100 feet of water. As we always tell you: he with the most chum wins.
The tarpon run at the bridges is outstanding with lots of 60- to 100-pound fish plus the occasional monster over 150 pounds.
Mangrove snapper in the bay
The wrecks and banks in the bay continue to produce a very good mangrove snapper bite. Great for families and novice anglers.
The SeaSquared spent the week fishing for tarpon, dolphin, snapper and grouper.
Honeymooners Nick and Tiffany Mills brought dolphin and amberjack back to the dock.
