After a couple weeks of downtime due to hurricane Florence and the Governors idiotic decision to request a mandatory evacuation of the island, we got back to business this past week. I enjoyed brushing off the cobwebs of the golf clubs and getting some fun surf to ride on, but it was back to business as usual and while we stayed busy and active, it remained very one dimensional with plenty of 100-200lb Sharks cruising with the shrimp trawlers, and their smaller counterparts in the nearshore river-mouths and estuaries. We tried for the Bull Redfish a couple of days but with water temps still in the low 80″s, the Sharks don’t seem to be in a hurry to vacate the area, and why would they with so much food source in the area. What we need is some cooler weather and cooler water currents that will bring in more Redfish and force out all the Teeth. I was very happy to see the schools of Mullet that are returning and saw thousands of them being blown up by dolphins and Blacktips as they cruised along the beach. Mullet are Bull Reds favorite food, and if the weather would just cool down some, the fishing will really start to turn on. Unfortunately, 90 degree temps are forecasted for the coming week which means any Redfish that are here will be competing with the Sharks for another week or so. The good news is that we will be keeping the rods bent and the action will be steady.  Keep hope alive! October is just around the corner.
