We've had a lot of hot weather here in June though the last few days the wind kicked up and today we've had a bit of a deluge of rain. Fishing in the backcountry has been pretty good overall. The calm days while getting a little steamy are generally very good for fishing. The water cleans up nicely and the bait shows up well in many areas, leading to more catchable fish. A week ago we had very good fishing for snook on several days using live pilchards. While catching pilchards there were also plenty of trout, snappers, and other things to catch as well. Capt. Bill Bassett had also reported a good snook bite as well plus some small goliath groupers, redfish, and various other species. Capt. John Johansen has reported steady tarpon fishing in the backcountry. We've had pretty good tarpon fishing as well though some days it's been tougher than others. The big thing often is catching the bait, which has not been very consistent. Certain tides/times it is very easy, other times it is not catchable which can lead to you struggling through the day. Capt. Mike Venezia reported some nice snook in the backcountry as well as some tripletails. Capt. Jim Willcox has been getting into the deeper creeks reporting a handful of drums, reds, and snook. Capt. Mike Basset and Capt. Sid Bryant have reported a good bite of trout and snappers out in the bays in the backcountry. Capt. Skip Nielsen has had some good days as well doing a mix up of backcountry snook, some tarpon, as well as stuff for dinner on several days. Anyways summer time can definitely still be good fishing even though the weather is a little hotter. We always recommend wearing light clothing, long sleevs are preferrable due to bugs etc... Give us a call and we can put you on some fish!
