Man what a great day at the reef! I had two groups today and when I spoke to each group on the phone when they booked their trip they told me that they just wanted to catch A LOT of fish and didn’t care about keeping any.
I had some reef fishing in mind so I told them that it was nothing to catch over 150 fish in a half day trip. Well, I think they thought I was telling them a fish tale but… they found out that I underestimated the bite we would find.
All in all between the two fishing trips I would conservatively estimate that we caught over 400 fish. Before you get too excited let me explain that many of these fish were Sea Bass which are out of season, but the rest were a mixture of Summer Trout, Redfish, Bluefish, and Black Drum. We even had one Red Snapper, but it was small enough to fit in your pocket.
Anyhow, this is a great time to get out on the reefs. If you want to catch Sheepshead, they are still out there but typically require a bit more patience. The Whiting are in the river if you are looking for a short and easy family fishing trip as well.
Look for the Tripletail to show up any day now.
