Southeast Florida ? Week 4 Report ? June 2012

Bad weather continued to keep many anglers at the dock as tropical storm Debby turned its sights on Florida. Venturing out had some rewards. Offshore on the troll, mostly before the weather hit, dorado, kingfish, BFT and wahoo were biting between 200-300 feet. Most anglers know that the barometric pressure changes, produced by approaching fronts and storms trigger feeding as the storm approaches, slows and often shuts down upon arrival and begins to pick back up as the storm moves away.
On the reefs and wrecks, yellowtail and mutton snapper, bonito, amberjack, sailfish, kingfish and sharks were in 90-200 feet.   

Near shore, along the beaches, piers, inlets and Intracoastal Waterway, bluefish , kingfish, Spanish mackerel, blue runners, jacks, snappers, and barracudas. In the Intracoastal the snook and tarpon bite slowed. Those that put in the time were able to raise tarpon and snook in the inlets, with live shrimp and crabs producing the best results.
In freshwater, in the canals and lakes, the early morning Bass bite was best along the grass lines with artificial worms producing good results.
If you are heading out keep alert for changes in weather and sea conditions.

 Tight Lines, Bent Poles, and Screaming Drags!!!
 Stay Salty My Friends!!!!
