Fishing trips are resulting in a variety of species coming over the gunnel. The usual suspects include speckled trout, ladyfish, black drum, mangrove snapper, small gag grouper and jack crevalle along with a few snook and redfish in the mix.
More unusual fish caught include a barracuda and permit. Clients are catching the fish on top-water plugs, bucktailed jigs and the always popular live shrimp.
Five year old Michael Bell spent some quality time fishing with his grandfather this week and had a great morning on the water, catching a variety with the permit being his first of that species (and grandpa is still waiting for his first permit).
Remember, the best time to go fishing is when you can and be sure to save some for seed!
