It’s a beautiful thing when the ocean is bursting with life and we get to take advantage of a variety of options. This summer, to offset the unpredictable weather, we’ve had an abundance of options when it comes to what to target.
The inshore bite has been good on Cumberland Beach with solid catches of Trout, jumbo Whiting, as well as an assortment of undesirable yet fun to catch Ladyfish and Jacks. In the rivers we’ve managed to find plenty of fish on most days in spite of the occasional flood tide and rainstorm.
Out past the beachline we’ve been targeting Sharks and Tarpon with a school of Jack Crevalle showing their faces from time to time. For those that want to encounter large fish with minimal risk or effort, set your sights on a shark fishing charter. For the angler that has their eye on something more challenging and elusive, let’s plan on spending the day Tarpon fishing. We have dates open this month and in August so book now to secure your time.
Out beyond the breakers on the nearshore wrecks and reefs, we’ve seen a spectacular Spanish Mackerel and Kingfish bite as well as a healthy showing from the Barracudas and Spadefish. Finding a bite on the reefs hasn’t taken much effort, just a decent day of weather so that we can cover the distance without taking a beating. The Kingfish and Spanish have been hammering the live baits while trolling while the barracudas have been a blast to catch while chumming with live baits and pitching to the fish near the boat. Spadefish, as usual require a little bit of time spent gathering cannon ball jelly fish to use as bait.
