The first week of the season is in the books and while there were a couple of fun and activity filled trips, there were several slow ones that didn’t yield much action at all. With water temps climbing into the seventies, I would of thought we would have seen plenty of baitfish and experienced some more variety, but other than some small sand and bonnethead Sharks, the bite was pretty slow for the most part. Even Whiteing, StingRays, and small miscellaneous fish which we usually catch one after another were far and few between. I was pleasantly surprised that we caught several nice Blacktips that were over the 60lb mark as well as a couple of sizeable Bull Reds this weekend, but even that didn’t make up for the overall bite that we endured the first 8 days into the season. Thankfully, it most assuredly gets better and better with each week that comes and goes. I expect there will be plenty of bait moving into our area waters this week, and more bait brings more bigger and better species to target. There you have it. It is what it is. Hopefully my next report is filled with nothing but awesome fishing stories and exploits. One way or the other, it will be honest. Tight Lines !
