Lots of fish this weekend, but nothing to brag about. The summer fishing patterns are taking shape, with cooler mornings, blazing hot afternoons, and evening thunderstorms, with no fronts in sight. The haul this weekend included bluefish, blue runners, mangrove snapper, gag and red grouper, TONS of lane snapper, key west grunts (yes, they’re right off the pier!), spanish macs, and a few others that escape my recollection. Pictured above is a nice snook that slammed a frozen sardine a few feet in front of the Merry Pier. Everybody got excited during the battle, expecting a huge grouper- kinda’ funny when a snook like this is actually a bit of a disappointment!
