Warning. Less than stellar fishing report about to begin. This past week went from bad to worse with both days proving very tough. We caught 8 Redfish with only 1 being larger than 30’inches and the others barely 20’inches on one trip. Our next outing we caught the islands “inshore grand slam ‘ ,redfish, trout,flounder and black drum. But that was it. 4 fish in all. Maybe it was the extreme king tides, or the incessant windy weather, but the bite was woeful. After a week of north wind and chilly nights, our area water temps have fallen back into the 50’s after reaching a high of 64deg a week or so back. That doesn’t help matters. Most guides I’ve discussed fishing with are also of the same feeling that both the inshore and offshore reef fishing has been terrible. Most boats couldn’t even make it to the nearshore reefs because of weather conditions. We have a warming trend over the next couple of days and hopefully the bite picks up. looks like the larger Redfish and small Sharks are still a week or so away. Don’t blame the messenger.
