The harbor is full of bull! And no, that is not a bunch of bull, it simply means that the large “bull” redfish have shown up in great numbers around our jetties and grillage areas. Large chunks of mullet, live menhaden, and blue crab are all cannot fail bait options for these bruisers. Flounder have also shown up in good numbers around our inlets and rock piles. Live minnows, Zman Jerk shadz, and the J-n-t spinner jigs have all been deadly options. Trout are still inhaling live shrimp along shell rakes, as well as the new Savage Gear shrimp.
The full blown May bite on dolphin has hit it’s stride, with great reports this past weekend coming in from 250-450 ft of water. Wahoo are still hanging around in the 150-250 ft of water range with even some blackfin tuna still showing up around Georgetown Hole and the Southwest Banks area. Grouper season opened back up on May 1, and solid reports of grouper and other bottom dwellers have been coming off of cigar minnows and butterfly style jigs fished in 80-130ft of water.
