Capt. Bruce Burkhart’s Weekly Fishing Report

Reported: May 5th, 2019 by Capt. Bruce Burkhart

The last few weeks have been good out on the beach catching Mackerel. The bay fishing is improving with some nice Trout, (catch and release) Ladyfish and Jacks on the grass flats.

Fishing live shrimp around docks we have been catching Mangrove Snapper, a few Sheephead and some small Redfish. The red tide is gone and the bay fish are moving back in the area bays so the fishing should get better with time.
