Fishing report from Walleyes Inc for the Florida Key's last update July 7, 2016

Dolphin catches were very good this past week.  Captain Jack Falcucci had a great day with plenty of Dolphin including a few nice gaffers.   Captain Butch Green on his Sassy Lady had a nice rack of Dolphin and some Blackfin Tuna mid week.   Captain Chuck on the Dee Cee out of Post Card Inn had a full rack of Dolphin and two Tripletail on a full day trip.  There was a White Marlin caught and released on the Sea Horse out of Whale Harbor Marina.  The Dog House a 53’ Hatteras with Captain Chris Scott had a banner day with twenty some Dolphin in the box on Thursday.  The Mahi were found in current rips and under birds and on debris at between 17 and 22 miles from the dock.


It is still all about the Yellowtail Snapper.  Bay boats and private anglers as well as charter boats are doing very well on the Yellowtail Snapper.  The fish are being caught on any reef area in depths from 70 to 85 feet of water.  The Yellowtail like to suspend where there is a vertical coral wall and rise up to inhale bits of chum and a small drifted bait.  There has been talk of the Mutton Snapper spawn going on and this means the Muttons feed aggressively.  Fish the live bottom areas from the reef line out to 200 feet of water.  If your sonar unit is capable, look for a fuzzy haze just off of the bottom or even darker specks that show an area of rock, sea fans and other growth that holds fish. 

Gulf and Bay:

The wide open spaces of the Gulf and the adjacent bay are holding lots of good fish.  Look for Trout and Mangrove Snapper to provide lots of good rod bending and good eating too.  Drifting the grass in 4 to 9 feet of water and jigging is the ticket.  A bucktail jig or soft tail will work equally well, just tip the jig with Shrimp or use a jig head with Berkley Gulp bait attached just like you would use a soft tail.  There should be Ladyfish and Jack Crevalle in the mix too.  Tarpon action is still good.  Fish the banks and channels out west for Tarpon and Sharks.  Captain Lou Brubaker caught one out of  two Tarpon hooked up and two Lemon Sharks out near Sandy Key last week.

Flats, Backcountry and Flamingo:

Guides turned a banner day in the Flamingo area last week.  Captain Freddie out of Whale Harbor Marina got into the Snook and Redfish using live Pinfish.  Fred fished the moats around the islands.  Captain John Gargan had a half day and found a limit of Mangrove Snapper and a few Trout for his fare mid week.  Close to home the channels have been providing great action on Tarpon.  There are still Mullet around and most guides are throwing a cast net to get Mullet for Tarpon bait.  Do yourself a favor and stay off of the water in the heat of the day, as the Tarpon bite will be best early and late.
