I fished Monday with Scott, Shannon and Kyleigh Matheus from Springfield Illinois. We started the trip at 6:30 and ran and caught bait and headed for the north bay. The fishing was a little slow at first but once the tide started moving good the fishing got to be a bite or fish on nearly every cast.
We were catching Trout to 20" bluefish to4 lbs and jack crevalle to 3 lbs.
Kyleigh said she would like to catch a shark so at the end of the trip we went and anchored up and within 10 minutes Kyleigh was fighting a shark that was 15-20lbs. Kyleigh did an awesome job fighting the shark and we took a picture and let it go!!!!
The bay fishing is starting to really get good and the bait is getting bigger. Look for 100 fish trips to be common the next couple months. The Tarpon fishing continues in the nearshore Gulf with drifting baits being the most productive method at this point. There are still some bigger schools around but they have started to break up and we are seeing more smaller schools of fish.
