Capt. Kelly Stilwell’s Weekly Fishing Report

Reported: July 9th, 2019 by Capt. Kelly Stilwell

The fishing really heated up last week. The Bayette family had a great trip. They were busy throughout the morning catching bluefish, Spanish mackerel, seatrout, and ladyfish. All the fish were caught on 1/4 ounce jigs with plastic tails.

Lawrence Baxter and his son went for an evening trip on Wednesday. They also saw some nice fish including a big pompano and some snook after dark.
