Corolla Fish Report
Another day in Paradice and boy have we had a good week weather-wise. The water temp is 70 today and the bite did pick up along the beach yesterday and we saw puppy drum, mullet, croaker, bluefish, spot for the most part. shrimp and fish bites and or bloodworms have been the ticket. We do have a moderate rip along the beach so some heaver lead is required. The boats are running strong this week and everyone is trying to get out before the weather turns late afternoon on Thursday but will move out on Friday morning so all in all, it's not going to be bad. Heavy rain Thursday night for sure but the storm will pass quickly. Folks worried about the fishing offshore for next week I don't think it will have any impact on the fishing. Offshore yesterday had a great day with loads of mahi, yellowfin, blackfin and some sailfish, and blue marlin. The bottom fishing remains very good for some large tilefish and sea bass. The nearshore boats especially the 3/4 day trips are getting king mackerel, Spanish, amberjacks, and even some cobia around. On the bayside puppy drum and trout will be your meal ticket. So not too bad.
Charter boats to put it simply you can't book your trip early enough trips are filling up weekly and it is very hard to find a boat available so call as soon as you know your party wants to go and this includes shrimping and crabbing trips. Call 252-453-3339
