Rain, rain and more rain. That has been the topic of the fishing this past week. We are definitely on the old summertime pattern of afternoon thunderstorms which are welcomed but lightning makes anglers scurry of the water quickly.
With the weather we have been receiving the snook bite has really turned on. The inlets and beaches are full of big snook striking Rapala twitching mullet and live bait’s in their vicinity. Schools of snook can be seen a times busting bait schools in the fun clear water. The bite will get better and better as big snook spawn and begin feed heavily.
Tarpon fishing is great do to the rain in our local area. Spillways have opened up, pushing bait schools around. Tarpon are beating on these bait schools as bait is flushed with the tide. DOA Terror Eyz great bait to get the silver king jumping. Live baits free lined also a great method for getting hooked up with the silver king.
The freshwater fishing has been great for largemouth bass as local canals are rising and bait schools begin to move around with the current. Small Rapala skitter walks provide action for morning bite mid day small Rapala twitchin rap provoke strikes. The peacock bass continue to bed a long seawalls and dock pilings. These fish can be sight finished with DOA 3 inch shrimp in fire tiger color.
Well that is the fishing report for the past week, hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch. Get out there and get hooked up. Tight lines!
