INSHORE- The water inshore is HOT right now, and the fish are lazy to say the least. Catch and release snook fishing is pretty good right now, but it for the most part is happening at night or extreme lowlight periods of the day. The mangrove snapper are getting a little more aggressive inshore, but they too will be best at night. Live shrimp small live pilchards, or sardine chunks are all good bait choices for the snapper. Other inshore reports are slow at best.
SURF/PIER- Summer surf fishing patterns kinda kicked in this week. A fair number of tarpon are making their way north along the beach right now. Tough to get a chance at the tarpon from shore; but those on the pier or in a boat are definitely seeing a good number of fish (Getting a bite is another story). Big schools of jacks are also pushing around along the beach. Again it will be primarily the pier and boat guys getting a chance at the big jacks. Catch and release snook fishing is good along the beach and in the inlets right now. Fair number of croaker and whiting along the beach in the first trough right now. Small pieces of shrimp will be best for them.
