—–The weather and the fishing this past week out of Island Discount Tackle has been nothing short of spectacular.
—–Offshore we still have kingfish. In fact I had three trips this week where we caught good numbers of kings up to twenty-five pounds. While fishing for kings we also caught spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, black tip sharks and catch-and-release grouper.
—–Inshore snook are making their run to the passes for the spawn. Lots of dark fish just out from the backcountry showed up just this past week. Redfish are still there for the taking just not in the huge schools of a couple of weeks ago. Trout will be on the deeper grass flats around the bay as we come up on this next full moon.
—–Tarpon are showing up in better numbers each day. Pass crabs are starting to flow on the outgoing tides and should make for some happy “poons”. It will not be long now until boats will be drifting along with said pass crabs in high hopes of hooking the mighty silver king. Nothing in light tackle fishing comes close to six feet of pure silver muscle going ballistic on the end of your line.

Thank You & Good Fishing!
