December has arrived and the heat is still on. The warm weather is making it feel like spring time fishing. Bite is great but it would be nice to get the migratory fish pattern going.
Due to the warm waters and warm sunny days in South Florida the snook fishing is thriving. Snook are active along docks and seawalls. Live mullet and Rapala skitter walks creates massive strikes from the linesiders. Bridges and channels are holding bigger snook, DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail and live baits worked on the bottom will get the drag screaming.
Tarpon fishing continues to shine. Tarpon school up near deep passes and channels, willing to take live baits and DOA Terror Eyz. Tarpon can be seen rolling on the surface, allowing anglers to cast baits in their vicinity. The back bays and canals near mangrove shorelines are great areas to locate juvenile tarpon. Anglers are enjoying catching tarpon on live bait and DOA Terror Eyz. The average size of a tarpon are ranging from 5 to 50 pounds.
Anglers looking for a variety of species to target, can work channel edges, and rock piles, using jigs and live shrimp. Snapper, jacks, drum, croaker, mackerel and many other species have put a bend in the rod for anglers. A few small, cold fronts will really trigger the migratory pattern.
Well, that is the fishing report for the past week, hope you all enjoyed. Remember, you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight lines!
