On the water with Capt. Bruce Burkhart.

We had some decent fishing last week in the bay.

Anglers fishing with me on the Casual Lies out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters had some decent fishing last week. Some spots we had been fishing had dirty water in them but we did find good fishing in the clean water and around some deeper docks.

CAL jigs in gold and white did the trick on the Trout, Jacks, and Ladyfish. Topwater lures caught a few big Jacks but not like it was a couple of weeks ago.

The best fishing came using live shrimp under the deeper docks. Lots of Mangrove Snapper, a few Black Drum, and some nice Sheep Head are showing up if you're patient.
