This weeks catch forecasts whats to come. With some cooler temps and a good amount of much needed rain for our area the fish have become happy and hungry. With Redfish, Snook, juvenile Tarpon being the stars of the show. However let's not forget about the lesser talked about species. Strong pushes of fish have started happening and we have been capitalizing. Trout, Jacks, and Pompano have been stealing the show. With the occasional Spanish Mackeral and Cobia highlighting the day!
The fishing was on fire this week even with the looming threat of Tropical Storm/hurricane Erika. Erika broke up and just caused a little rain and we went fishing. In the expansive Florida bay and Everglades National Park we can see these storms coming and usually with no or minimal impact go around them and continue fishing. So that is exactly what we did. The large Mangroves are still biting as well as the Snook and Redfish in the mangroves. The Sharks were as about as hungry as I have ever seen them with the average size being 6-8 ft.
