Hot Snook Bite
We’ve had some not so beautiful conditions over the last couple of weeks or more, but the weather has been shaping up. Last week we had winds up to gale force even a day or two and some rain here and there that kept my phone pretty quiet. I get so many of my clients that check the weather way too far in advance, and 9 times out of 10 it changes to some extent. If you’re worried about weather when booking a charter, book a trip, and we can always adjust accordingly. Usually it works out just fine. Quite a few people tried to book last minute because of weather and I had no availability at that point.
Water temps are in the mid 70s and the tarpon are starting to show up around the inlet and off the beach. There’s been some schools of bait hanging off the beach and that’s the time to target some tarpon. It should only get better this month. I’ve been starting to notice them more throughout the intracoastal in New Smyrna recently and around some of the bridges. The Snook bite has been awesome all over the place, with quite a few slot fish and over slots as well. The inlet has been good for some, and a bunch are being caught in New Smyrna. In Daytona and Port Orange there’s been a bunch of jacks, ladyfish, and blues in areas off the main intracoastal. I’ve also caught some pompano off of the main channel around oyster bars lately. There’s also been a bunch of jacks around the bridges, which has been a blast for kids and anyone just looking for a bunch of action. There’s going to be a lot going on over the next month, so get out and wet a line!
