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!!!
