Inshore Report: The flats fishing has been on fire for me the last week or two with lots of snook, some slot fish too pretty to eat, and a few over with lots of just under 27″ fish. The trout have started their spawn and might i say we are catching the heck out of them. Our biggest trout this week was 28″ and lots of 20-24″ fish, sometimes 50-70 trout in a half day outing. Redfish are starting to turn on as well with a few really good days on them, along with the snook and trout that has made for some killer fishing.
Offshore Report: The king fish should be here tomorrow or any day now, spannish mackeral are in abundance on the reefs. Gag grouper have been hitting hard while catching mangrove snapper up to 21″. Some days limits of flounder is not uncommon. Oh and big sharks are showing up in close now too. We hooked a 9′ Bull shark on the flats the other day. Keep this in mind if u have any swimming plans while ur here on vacation a 18″ Great White Shark was spotted by another Capt. 4 days ago about 3 miles off Anna Maria Island.
