Scott’s Fishing Report — August 5, 2014

 

reports scott morehead black marlin Scotts Fishing Report    August 5, 2014

Inshore:

The silver king reigns in August! Yep, tarpon have begun to show up in good numbers recently and have been taking large live mullet, live menhaden, and cut baits fished around the tips of the jetties and around our inlets. Bull reds continue to provide solid action around the grillage and jetties as well, with numbers of Spanish holding just out side the jetties and inlets on the tidelines as well. Early mornings have produced some solid topwater action on trout and reds in the river, and some BIG flounder have hit the scales recently as big as 9lbs that were caught along rock piles on live minnows, live mullet, and jerkshads.

Offshore:

While Red Snapper season was a huge success with some huge ARS being caught, just beacause Red Snapper are closed again does not mean that there is not still some excellent bottom fishing to be had. Solid numbers of grouper in 100ft have been found on live baits as well as butterfly style jigs and vermillions have been numerous in 80-90ft on squid and cigar minnows. The trolling side of things is still producing a handful of mid-sized wahoo along the ledge with the scattered dolphin thrown in the mix. Sailfish have been a little hit and miss, with the better reports coming from 350-450ft.

Scott’s Fishing Report — July 21, 2014

reports scott catch and release sailfish 01 Scotts Fishing Report    July 21, 2014

Inshore:

Go walk the dog! No seriously, get a few super spook jr topwater plugs and go walk the dog early in the morning along shell rakes and creek mouths for some explosive action from trout, ladyfish, bluefish, and reds all on topwater! The topwater bite has been good the past couple of weeks, and so has the flounder bite. Live minnows or a jerkshad fished near rock piles, creek mouths, as well as in sandy coves have been producing solid numbers of flounder and some good sized flatties as well. Reds continue to take cut mullet, live shrimp, and Zman Ultra ShrimpZ fished under docks at low tide and along the grass edges and shell rakes at higher water. Spanish are still schooling up tight along the tideline just off the front beaches, and the bonnethead sharks are around in big numbers willing and ready to take cut mullet and half of a blue crab.

Offshore:

Dredge season is here! Yep now is time to put the dredges in the water and tease up some great sailfish action. Reports of 2,4,and 5 sails a day have not been uncommon with many more “shots” being reported. A few dolphin are still being found here and there as well as some wahoo still hanging around in the warm water along the ledge. The recreational season for Red Snapper opened last weekend, is open this weekend, and is also open to the recreational angler Friday 7/25 and Saturday 7/26. Anglers bottom fishing the Red snapper season last weekend all found good numbers of snapper to fill their one/person limit, but more incredibly was the size of some of these snapper. 20-25# red snapper were common, with a handful even larger than that. Take advantage while the season is open!!!
