Exciting Fishing Action; Jacksonville Report by Captain Kirk Waltz
The fishing offshore is as good as it gets. Summer temperatures have been normal with winds in the morning blowing SW and have these fish really fired up. Bait pods are moving in from the south with scores of big predators in abundant supply feeding on them. Inshore reds, tarpon are hanging around the big rocks feeding on everything.Kings, sharks, big jacks, and tarpon are on the beach and around the shrimp boats.
The big rocks are producing reds, oversized reds, jacks and some small tarpon are being caught in good calm conditions. It's a great time to get out and wet a line. The weather is nice, and the fishing is exciting. Good numbers of quality eating fish are available to take some home for the dinner table. The !st little trickle of NE wind flow has the fish feeding before the big move south. Bull reds will push hard into the inlet to spawn on the next moon phase.
The offshore fishing action is in wide open mode with kings, cudas, sharks,tunny, sails, and cobia feeding hard. Snapper, sea bass,ringtails, and other bottom fish are available on the area reefs. Good numbers of bait equals good numbers of striking fish invading the areas beach haunts. If the warm trend continues it will only increase the number of kings, cudas, amberjack, sailfish,cobia, and little tunny to the area party grounds. You can't catch them sitting on the couch! There'll be lots of good action in the weeks to come. Come on out and let's catch some big whoppers! Check out our Facebook and Instagram posts to see recent catches and reviews.
