Southeast Florida ? Week 2 Report ? July 2012

Offshore to the north of HBI, on the troll, small Dorado were scattered across the area from 75 feet out to 1100 feet. Trolling 90-400 feet produced small Dorado, kingfish, wahoo, bonito, BFT and sailfish. Skirted and bare ballyhoo brought the fish up to bite. The bite to the south of HBI seemed to slow down this past week.

On the reefs and wrecks, yellowtail, mangrove and mutton snapper, small grouper, cobia, bonito, cero and Spanish mackerel and sharks were in 60-150 feet. The bite seemed to be best in the evening and night.  

Near shore, along the beaches, piers, inlets and Intracoastal Waterway, Cero and Spanish mackerel, blue runners, jacks, pompano, snappers and permit were taking baits. Snook and tarpon were in the inlets, along the beach and around docks/bridges. Don?t forget that snook season is closed until September 1and is a catch and release only fishery.
In freshwater, the morning remained the best time for bass in the lakes and peacocks in the canals. The best bite for bass was along the grass lines. Live shiners and artificials both produced well.  

Tight Lines, Bent Poles, and Screaming Drags!!!
