The weather has let us know she is unpredictable, so there hasn't been very many offshore days available. Offshore, the best thing going right now would be the 10 and 12 hour days.
On the 10 hour days, we are bottom fishing for black sea bass, vermilion snapper, triggers, red porgy, grouper, cobia, etc.
On the 12 hour, we add the possibility of a wahoo or blackfin tuna trolling offshore and then ending it up with the bottom fish mentioned on the 10 hour trip.
On the 4, 6, and 8 hour trips, we are targeting black sea bass, vermilion, triggers, and whatever else we can find.
There are plenty of red snapper but they have to be thrown back and you get the occasional chance at a grouper or cobia.
Inshore, the sheepshead have picked up with some nice numbers of fish caught. Also there are still some flounder, speckled trout, yellow trout, and plenty of bull reds around.
The real bottom line is, “the best time to go fishing is when you have the chance.”
