Capt. Kelly Stilwell’s Weekly Fishing Report

Reported: May 2nd, 2019 by Capt. Kelly Stilwell

Anglers aboard the Tide Tuit have seen some decent action recently. We are still catching some Spanish mackerel in the nearshore Gulf. Inshore action has been pretty good with lots of ladyfish, jack crevalle, bluefish, and an occasional spotted seatrout. The night snook trips have been consistent with catches from 6 to 15 fish and many of those measuring up to 26 inches.
