Mid July fishing has not disappointed anglers. The beaches, inlets, and Icw have offered a plethora of choices for anglers to put a bend in there rod.
The Inshore fishing has been full of action for anglers targeting Snook. The Snook continue to gather in our inlets and deep channels. The Snook are averaging 5 to 25 pounds. Live baits dropped to the bottom and DOA C.A.L. 4' jerk baits in bayou tiger rigged with a 3/8 ounce jig head bounced off the bottom will get you hooked up.
The Tarpon action has been great on the beach and inside the ICW for anglers looking to tango with the silver king. Look for rolling fish and present a live bait or jig in the area were fish are rolling. The Tarpon have ranged in size from 10 to 70 pounds. Always remember to bow down while a Tarpon is jumping to avoid the break offs and hooks pulling out.
The Docks and seawalls have provided great action for anglers using jigs and live baits. The Jacks, Snapper and a few Trout have been the main predators being caught. These fish have been ambushing bait schools as they look for shelter. Early morning and late afternoon has provided the best bite.
Freshwater action has been great for peacock bass and large mouth bass.. Peacock bass have been active along shorelines and drop offs striking live bait and small twitch baits. The clown knife and have also been a striking baist along bridge pilings and channel edges.
Well that is the report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski, PhlatsInshoreFishing.com, 561-644-4371
