FISHING REPORT WEEK ENDING JULY 19,2020

The fishing has been great in spite of these horrible temperatures. Flounder are being caught in all the channels and creeks. Key to catching a bigger fish is bigger baits- jumbo minnows tipped on a tandem rig with GULP swimming mullet in just about any color although the salmon orange had been the hit this season. We cannot keep it in the shelves!!Some bluefish have been reported being caught as well as small Stripers. Whiting/kingfish & croaker are still a staple on the inside of the Inlet between buoys 11 & 14, using anything smelly n bloody but if you prefer the cleaner almost guaranteed catch then the bait to use is FishBites artificial bloodworms or GULP artificial bloodworms that replicates a real bloodwork to perfection without getting bitten!! LOL! What can I say about the inshore coastal shark fishery? It’s hot!! It’s addicting!! It’s fun!! Anywhere from the Inlet east to roughly five miles off or in the creeks closer in like Cockle Creek or north of the Queen Sound bridge you can find these predators. Smaller ones n limited variety on the inside while offshore you’ll find a mix up species of larger sized sharks. Bunker fish or Mackeral trolling in a chum slick will get the action going. Once you do it you’ll forget about fishing for anything else (except the deep blue water fish ie tuna, Cobia, wahoo). Speaking of tuna-well, this sure has been a great year for fishing The only downside for tuna is the distance you’ve got to travel - to the Canyons. But if you love fishing and being on the water, it’s just a bonus. Trolling with ballyhoo has been producing some REAL NICE yellowfin. Moving closer in the wrecks - Marine Electric & the un -named’ wreck have been having great catches of triggerfish, sea bass and the biggest ribbonfish ever seen in our waters. Blackfish Banks, aka the Subway Cars producing flounder, triggers, sea bass and a few trout. The beach and surf fishing has pretty much the same as being caught inside. Crabbing is sizzling with sizes ranging in the six inch range. Throw some chicken necks on a hand line or cut up a bunker n throw in your pots and get ready for picking. Talk about making memories - picking crabs on a newspaper lined table , sipping a wine cooler and laughing about the one that almost took your finger off. It’s all good this year. Thank you Jesus. We needed this.
