July Nearshore Fishing Report

Nearshore and Wreck Fishing:

As the cobia migrate out the rivers and sounds tarpon will be migrating in to take their place. These fish average over 100 pounds and put up a spectacular fight. Also known as the silver king, tarpon are most well known for their aerial acrobatics when hooked. Along with tarpon we will see some of the best shark fishing of the season. Most of the sharks that we catch range in size from 20-100 pounds and may include species such as bonnetheads, black tips and lemon sharks. On the other hand sharks such as hammerheads, tigers and bull sharks may go over 500 pounds…not for the faint of heart! Around the rivers and off of the beach look to catch good numbers of spanish mackerel by using live bait and trolling tactics. Moreover, if you are looking for a true drag screamer then you might want to head out to catch king mackerel. These fish are most commonly found around the offshore wrecks and live bottom areas and can be caught by bump trolling live bait. As you can see there is no shortage of fishing options right now so let gear up and hit the water. Until next tim, Catch em Up!
