Fishing Forecast

Water temperatures are high right now and fishing during the heat of the day can be slow. Water will cool slightly once our daily thundershowers begin.

Snook fishing will remain strong throughout the early summer. Fishing for reds will only get better. The larger sea trout will eventually head for their summer hiding places in deeper water.

Mangrove snapper will be the easiest catch of the summer with limits of fish easily caught within an hour or so of fishing.

Remember to stay hydrated and get off the water before the thundershowers kick up. Summer fishing can be very productive fishing early morning and early evening.
