The month of December was outstanding. It almost seemed like summer. The Snook bite was on fire. Here are a couple of pictures of my guests and me, out checking the stocks of these beauties. All fish were measured, noted, and released. There were many that were lost before a picture could be taken.
Other species showed up, like the giant Jacks.
Then we moved in to the month of January, with the same conditions. We continued catching Snook. Pictured below is my client with his very first Snook.
Finally, a cold front came in the second week of January. The Snook bite shut off, but the Black Drum and Sheephead started moving in. Here are some of my clients with their catches.
I expect this trend to continue. With no Red Tide in sight, the fishing continues to get better and better. Other noteworthy fish being brought to the rails have been juvenile Red Fish, Flounder, and of course, many, many Sea Trout.
I have a few dates still available this season. Call me if you’d like to get in on this great action.
