Happy New Year to everyone, I Hope you had a great 2018 and that 2019 will be even better. Fishing this week has produced snook, pompano, redfish, jack crevalle, black drum, ladyfish, sheepshead, and mangrove snapper.

The bite has been a bit sporadic. The fish were caught on live shrimp and bucktail jigs working canals and docks. Catch of the week honors go to Harriett King with a beautiful five spotted, 26-inch redfish. Remember, the best time to go fishing is when you can and be sure to save some for seed!
