kids are kings (and queens) ICW (Intracoastal Waterway) Near shore (inside of 20 miles)
Just found out this morning (5Jun'15) there will be
--NO RED SNAPPER SEASON FOR THE SE ATLANTIC IN 2015 --
The summer transition from ICW and Bottom Fishing to live bait trolling and shark/tarpon fishing behind the shrimp boats has taken place. With the water temps rising in the ICW and the offshore waters the river (ICW) fishing has backed off (we are still catching but not in the numbers we catch with cooler water) and the Bottom fishing has become work (You have to go deeper, meaning longer trips, and move more often to catch the same amount of fish). While, on the other hand, the live bait trolling for Kings, cobia, AJ's (amber jack), Bonita and the possible sail or mahi are the way to go. Or, for the shorter trips for BIG fish, you may want to drop in behind a shrimp boat and look for a tarpon or med to large shark on spinning tackle. The shrimp boat trips are always fun and you get to see a lot of dolphin as well as catching large fish on light tackle.
Come on, Lets go catch some fish.
