Well the end of this brutal heat is not too far away. The water temps are still hovering around 86-87 which has all of the normal summertime fish biting really well. We have absolutely been hammering the Jacks and Blues and Spanish on the nearshore wrecks and sandbars and most of them have been cought on the "Captain Rick Percy Special" Which you will have to talk to him to find out what that is!....
The Tarpon fishing is still going on pretty good. The large schools of pogies have finally showed up and we've been seeing and catching a few fish as they blow up in these baitfish. Pretty soon the Tarpon should be feeding on mullet a little more and we'll start seeing them in some of the smaller creeks and flats inshore.
On the Red and Trout front things have been, well, incredible... We have had several days in the past week that scored in the mid thirties and forties. The shrimp population is looking great and the reds and trout have just been gorging themselves on the flats with these little guys. Based on what were seeing now, it's shaping up to be one incredible fall.
Hopefully in the next few weeks we will see the water temps drop a little bit which should bring the big bull Reds into the sound.
