While the bite is still slow, things are picking up rapidly. Bait schools have moved into Blind Pass, a few stray greenbacks are starting to show up at Merry Pier and at the Jetty in Pass-A-Grille, and fish are starting to get frisky. I’ve had reports of flounder and Mackeral in Pass-A-Grille, redfish and trout at Ft. Desoto, and pompano at Blind Pass and the Jetty. Sheepshead are starting to show nicely, with a few big ones biting tube worms and fiddler crabs.
I even managed to pull a small grouper out of the pilings:
Miss Pass-A-Grille went out on a 1/2 day trip Sunday, and returned with a great haul of key west grunts, a few keeper grouper, and even a hogfish.
