   Great weather this week so enjoy it I understand we have rain coming. Fishing slow for some and not for others I'm not sure what to say but for the people not catching fish maybe they should do some light reading. You have to look around, you have to move around the fish aren't looking for you, you're looking for them. I really think that some folks expect the fish just to jump on their line and when they don't they come in and ask why it's called fishing, I wish I caught fish every time I went out but that just doesn't happen. I am actually amazed how many people ask what do I need and what bait to use and those people don't get one thing I told them to get then they wonder why they don't catch anything, why ask. That's today's rant I could go on but again why.
   We still are seeing mullet, croaker, and a bunch of spot. There is a school of minnows and they may not be in front of your house hint hint but they are moving around and you just may want to throw some metal out there and try you may be rewarded.  The people looking for sharks are not having any trouble getting hooked up. I would say the average time is 20 to 30 minutes and some have had 15 to 20 hookups with most getting landed. The piers have had some good fishing on them also another way to let the fish come to you. There is some good fishing to be had on the nearshore trips and think at least 6-hour trip to get where you need to be there is decent fishing on the half days but the longer trips will be worth it. The offshore action has been yellowfin, blackfin, mahi, and tiles and there is some billfish action as well.

Charters are hard to come by in most cases so call ahead and reserve a spot so you don't miss out.
