July fishing is challenging but rewarding eventhough weather is helter skelter with thunderstorms, high heat and humidity. We are leaving the docks before daylight and returning between 10 and 11am.

First light has proven good for fishing Gurglers and Zara spooks for topwater action for the first couple of hours and then switching over to baitfish patterns and soft plastics.

The snook bite continues to be good on the incoming tide as well as redfish willing to hit any number of flies and artificial baits. Trout are in the deeper holes that contain clean water. Snook have been from 18 to 26 inches with most redfish in the 20 to 27” range.

There are still Tarpon out on the beach but at this time of year the numbers are a lot less than during normal migration. If we can get on them they will eat, as they have already been offshore and spawned.

Great time to fish watching the sun come up over the mangroves and seeing that topwater explosion with a 24” snook attached to your fly or plug.

Lots of different species at this time also, including, Jacks Crevalle, Bluefish, Tripletail and flounder.

Great time to spend a Half day on the water…..

See you soon,

Capt. Al
