Fishing Report for August 2020

Fishing Report for August 2020

This past month has been a wild one. I went from having one of the best months for charters and fishing in July to a very slow August. I know we are getting into the slow season, but that doesn’t mean the fishing is slow by any means. The live bait continues to be plentiful on the flats. From Threadfins, Scaled Sardines, to pinfish and grunts, there seems to be an abundance everywhere you go. The redfish bite continues to be strong. Lots of over slot fish roaming around. Redfish have really switched over to eating a lot of cut bait as opposed to chasing down the quick white bait. The water temperatures remain hot and these fish burn a lot more calories trying to chase down bait as opposed to just foraging for means. Look for tailing redfish on the falling tides. When the tide is up the fish seem to be cruising under or very close to the mangrove shorelines. Snook fishing is still excellent and plenty of fish are being caught on white bait as well as a few on cut bait. Moving water is the key when targeting snook. The Trout fishing in there, but I really haven’t tried targeting them, but when I do I find plenty in the deeper water adjacent to the flats or on the flats when the tide is very high. Tarpon are still around in certain part of the bay if you know where to look. I am really looking forward to the fall the fishing is just going to be out of this world good.

On other news I plan on getting a bigger boat for next year and will be able to take up to 4 angler possibly more. So keep that in mind when thinking about booking.! Hope to see you on the water. I am getting a brand new custom built bonefish hilltide 22.
