    FISHING REPORT

    JUNE 21, 2017

    BY:  STEVE FIFER

    AFTER A WEEK OF BEAUTIFUL WEATHER FOR THE BIG ROCK TOURNAMENT, OFFSHORE AND NEARSHORE OCEAN CONDITIONS HAVE DETERIORATED SLIGHTLY MAKING FOR WET AND BUMPY BOAT RIDES TO THE FISH. THEY’RE OUT THERE, HOWEVER. THE PELAGICS SUCH AS MARLIN, SAILFISH, WAHOO, AND MAHI CAN BE FOUND ALONG THE GULF STREAM EDGES AND EDDIES AS WELL AS A LITTLE CLOSER TO SHORE AS THE WATER TEMPS AND BAIT MOVE IN. TROLLING BALLYHOO REMAINS THE PREFERRED METHOD TO CATCH THEM. DEEP JIGGING OVER WRECKS AND LIVE BOTTOMS IS VERY PRODUCTIVE RIGHT NOW AS GROUPER, AMBERJACKS, KINGS, BLACKFIN WILL STRIKE A  BUTTERFLY-JIGGED LURE MOVING RAPIDLY UPWARD THROUGH THE WATER COLUMN. THE KEYS ARE GOOD STRUCTURE AND A VERY FAST RETRIEVE. IT’S TIRING FISHING, BUT REALLY EFFECTIVE. CLOSER IN OVER THE SAME TYPE OF BOTTOMS YOU’LL FIND A BIG VARIETY OF BOTTOMFISH; SNAPPERS, PORGIES, GRUNTS, TRIGGERFISH, AND SEA BASS ARE SEEMINGLY ALWAYS HUNGRY. THEY’LL GOBBLE UP ANY SORT OF CUT OR LIVE BAIT DROOPED DOWN TO THEM BUT YOU’LL HAVE LOTS OF SHARKS TO CONTEND WITH TOO. TRY BOUNCING A 2 TO 4 OUNCE METAL JIG LIKE A ROSCOE OR STINGSILVER OFF THE BOTTOM TO IMPROVE THE SIZE OF THE FISH YOU’LL CATCH. ON THE LOCAL AR’S LIKE THE 285, 315, 320, AND 330 THE FLOUNDER CAN BE FOUND AROUND THE LOW-RELIEF DEBRIS. THEY TYPICALLY AREN’T FOUND OVER THE SUNKEN SHIPS AT THESE PLACES. NOTHING BEATS A 2 OUNCE BUCKTAIL WITH A 4” GULP SHRIMP TRAILER DRAGGED ON THE BOTTOM. THE MORE VERTICAL (MEANING THE SLOWER YOU CAN DRIFT) YOUR PRESENTATION, THE BETTER THE RESULTS. INSHORE ALONG THE INTERCOASTAL, CREEKS, AND MARSHES THERE ARE GOOD NUMBERS OF SPECKLED TROUT, REDFISH, FLOUNDER, BLACK DRUM, AND SHEEPSHEAD. IF YOU ARE OUT AT FIRST LIGHT, A WALKING-TYPE TOPWATER LIKE A SPOOK JR., SKITTERWALK, OR TOP DOG JR. WILL DRAW STRIKES. AS IT GETS LIGHTER, SWITCHING TO A SOFT PLASTIC GRUB OR JERKBAIT WORKS WELL AS DOES A PLASTIC SHRIMP (BETTS, DOA, STORM, OR VUDU) ABOUT 24-30” BELOW A POPPING CORK. A CAROLINA RIG WITH A SHORT (12-15”) LEADER IS THE BEST WAY TO FISH LIVE BAIT FOR THESE INSHORE SPECIES. SHRIMP, MUD MINNOWS, AND FINGER MULLET ARE TOP CHOICES. FROZEN BAITS WORK TOO BUT ARE SUBJECT TO CONSTANT PECKING AND BAIT STEALING FROM PINFISH AND OTHER PESTS.
