Offshore anglers are still catching tuna, kingfish and vermilion snapper, while the bay guides are limiting out on black drum and flounder.
Sharon Keehlisen at Woody’s Sports Center reported plenty of flounder caught with rod and reel and by gig off the bulkhead at Charlie’s Pasture, sheepshead off the south jetty, sand trout in the bay and gafftop from the piers at night. Bay guides have been limiting out on black drum in short time, she said.
John McNatt at Fisherman’s Wharf said offshore trips brought in kingfish and vermilion snapper. North jetty anglers are catching sheepshead, trout, black drum and redfish.
Scott Garrison at Deep Sea Headquarters said their boats “fished every nice day this week and the fishing has been great!” The long-range tuna trips have brought in yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna and wahoo. Shorter trips yielded vermilion snapper limits, kingfish and shark.
MaryAnn Heimann at Offshore Adventures reported that “when the sun came out, the fishermen came out, and they’re doin’ great!” She said anglers caught big redfish and keeper speckled trout right off the dock and in the bay. Duck hunters in the area are bagging lots of duck, as well.
Angel Tomacek at Horace Caldwell Pier said anglers there are catching whiting and gafftop.
Chris Wallace at Dolphin Dock said long-range offshore trips brough back “tuna, tuna and more tuna,” both yellowfin and blackfin, along with vermilion snapper, shark and some kingfish.
