Scott’s Fishing Report — February 23, 2015

reports-tim-sheep

Inshore:

While it may not really be an inshore report, I guess you could consider it an INLAND report as the Shad fishing in the tailrace canal has kicked into high gear with catch numbers from 20-50 fish the norm. 2” chartreuse curl tail grub and a 1/16 to 1/8oz jighead is all you need to have some easy fun. Back into the saltwater, the reds are still schooling in large numbers on the shallow flats ready to inhale and properly placed Zman StreakZ. Sheepshead are still hanging around bridge pilings and heavy structure in 10-25ft of water, with oysters being the bait of choice as of late.

Offshore:

Non-Stop strong winds have kept pretty much all boats inside safe harbor when it comes to offshore fishing the past week. However, history certainly tells us that if the wind will allow, there should be wahoo and blackfin tuna scattered along the ledge right now as well as strong bottom fishing closer to shore in 50-80ft of water.

Offshore:

While bottom fishing still continues to consist of the majority of the offshore reports, several boats have made it out onto the trolling grounds to find some stud wahoo. While a 91# beast has been the largest so far, numerous fish in the 50-60lb range have also been reported….all coming from just offshore of the ledge. Throw in a few blackfin tuna and a handful of small dolphin and it is already worth making the trip out and taking advantage of the lower fuel prices lately. Back on the bottom side, great reports of triggerfish and b-liners are being found in 70-90ft using squid and jigs, and plenty of large blackfish are still hanging around in 50-65ft.
