Things are starting to take off out here. You can actually use a sabiki to catch bait again! They are not thick but you can find some herring around the pass and buoys. Amberjack are responding to jigs, best bite has been in 100 or more feet of water. On the bottom red grouper, vermillion, porgies, black sea bass and black snapper with squid or cut spanish sardines.
The water temps are finally getting where we need them to be, just a few spanish mackerel reported so far and one local cobia. Plenty of bluefish and a few pompano are being reported around the piers and the pass.

The bite hasn’t been bad even though we are in the throws of a neap tide. On Sunday we get back to a normal one high and one low tide per day. Plenty of sheep head around the pass and the bridges. Red and black drum, black sea bass and mangrove snapper too. Trout are still way up in the back waters. Places like; near Sandy creek, Fannin bayou and Burnt mill.
