June 3rd

This past week offered plenty of Shark action as well as one day of some fun light tackle nearshore action for Spanish Mackerel.  The windy conditions and threat of weather kept us close to the beach, but there was a variety of Sharks to choose from such as Lemons,Blacktips,and Shovelheads. We fished in the wake of some nearby shrimp trawlers, and while we didn’t exceed the 100lb mark, we did manage to get a few nice ones. We live baited for Jacks and Mackerel one day and caught a handful while using very light gear on top water rigs. Lots of fun. This coming week looks to offer more of the same as long as the weather cooperates. The docks at Palmetto Bay are still uninhabitable from the hurricane this past Fall, so it appears that I will be fishing out of Shelter Cove marina at least thru the end of Summer. The  marina is conveniently located in the center of the island and has all the amenities one could hope for.   Will have an update by next weekend.  Tight Lines!
