Last week was a really good week for fishing. Calm winds and a glassy ocean made it irresistible not to head out a few miles and do some top water surface fishing. Armed with mostly light tackle Trout rods, we caught many Spanish Mackerel over several days. All of the fish were 3-5lbs and a very rewarding challenge. We did encounter several King Mackerel that smoked the small spinning reels and emptied the line plum out. That’s what happens when knives are brought to gunfights. The bite was on fire all week until late in the week when the wind wouldn’t allow us to fish in comfort. We stayed inshore Friday and caught a dozen or more Black Drum while trying to hook up on some Redfish. Oh well. This morning we had a glassy high tide and decided to birddog the nearshore Shrimp trawlers. Needless to say, the top water action for those high jumping Black Tips didn’t disappoint. The next several days are gonna be hot in both air temps and fishing action I believe. By midweek the weather becomes an issue and we can just hope for the best. Thanks for taking the time to check out my report. Tight Lines to You and Yours.
