BlueWater Outriggers Fishing Report 6-19-24

 OFFSHORE: Red Snapper bite continues to improve with limits being caught. Our local guides continue to out perform themselves. Kingfish have started showing up. Try trolling spoons when they are feeding on the surface. Topwater plugs such as a Rapala Magnum or Yozuri Top Knock Pencil should be your first choice . One of our local fisherman CJ Young had a great trip with a cooler of kingfish, red grouper and snapper At 12 years old, I'd say that's pretty good. He's wanting to become a guide in the future, looks like he's got a great start. Snowy and yellow edge grouper are also being caught in the 400+ feet of water.                               

INSHORE: Bite has been a little, tough with the weather being the contributing factor. There are fish out there and some nice schools of redfish roaming the cape, But they are spooky, you will probably want to finesse cast, a live shrimp out in front of them. Flounder are still being caught around the Highland view bridge using bull minnows or shrimp.          

FRESHWATER : The Dead lakes have been yielding, some fine stringer of crappie. Fish the stumps in the morning and the deeper channels in the afternoon, soft plastics or minnows are topping the chart. Just a reminder gator season opens August 15. Here at BlueWater Outriggers we have gator snatch hooks, and a fresh shipment of bang sticks In different calibers. Stop in and see us. Until next week, don't forget those lanyards and lifejackets.
