August is off to a hot start. With above average sea surface and air temps, fishing early morning and late afternoon into the evening will be your best bet. Snook fishing inshore has been really good this week. Summer spawn seems to be in full force. Large live baits will catch larger snook when fishing near the bottom. Tarpon fishing has been good fishing channel edges with crabs this week. Any day now we will start to see trace amounts of mullet as we work our way towards the fall mullet run. When the mullets start to show up, switch gears and soak live mullet for larger apex river predators. Nearshore has been consistent for larger jack creveles, sharks, tarpon, snook, bonita and kingfish. Snapper fishing has been steady on live reef bottom using chicken rigs with cut bait. Sailfishing peaked mid july and now we are working on a downward trend until late november december when the winter run kicks in again. Sailfish have been in shallower around bait schools and further offshore in 300′ +.
