Fishing's been very productive the last few weeks.

Anglers fishing with me this past week have had some exceptional days. We've been fishing the passes using a combination of live bait which seems to be the key. We’ve caught and released many snook from 16 to 34 inches.

We've also caught Mangrove snapper, jacks, and juvenile grouper as well. On a few of the days, we were out the passes were too rough so we wound up fishing the flats catching and releasing sea trout up to 20 inches.

Tight lines everyone!
