The fishing over the past week was right on track with what it should be this time of year. Good fishing but nothing off the charts. We are now at what should be the hottest several weeks of the year and with all the heat can make the fishing spotty. The good news is that the fish still have to eat and if you can find them while they are hungry you can fill the cooler. The offshore fleet is still catching fish in anywhere from 50-75 feet of water. As for the inshore fishing, the fish can be found near about anywhere. There is just so much bait right now the fish are spread out everywhere with plenty to eat. The mullet minnows are running the banks and if you pay close attention you will see the fish blowing up on the every once in a while. This right here will show you where a good place to get started is. There are plenty of flounder around and they are getting healthier. The redfish and speckled trout are in their normal hiding spots. A live bait will fool all of these fish. If you can get to them before the wind picks up during the middle of the day a top water plug will prove to be exiting. This past weekend was the Got-Em-On  live bait club’s second flounder tournament of the year. There was a great turnout with over 100 anglers entering in the event.
There was 43 Flounder brought to the scale’s today paying top 6 places. Ian Hoffman took 1st place with a 6.40lb. 2nd place went to John Theodorakis=4.80lb. 3rd was Mark Gilson=4.30 4th Kyle Jefferies=4.10lb. 5th place Mike Ferguson=4.05lb. 6th place Jake Scorzio=4.00lb. Congratulations to all the fisherman. The key to this time of year is to simply get out there and put your time in. The fall fishing is just around the corner and the fishing could start to heat up any week now.
