Summer Fishing Patterns

OK, yeah, I’ve been slacking a little keeping this site updated. But, hey, fishing has been less than spectacular recently. The Pompano have all moved outside the passes, snook remain elusive since the big freeze of 2009, grouper and amberjack are out of season and the snapper have been spotty. But, for the first time this year, I was able to net some decent size greenbacks at Merry Pier, and there are a few big macks around.

My friend Jim came over from Orlando for the July 4th weekend with his 9 year old daughter Jordan. We fished yesterday at the pier, and she bagged a nice keeper flounder, as well as a short, which was released unharmed. There were a few other flounder caught, but, oddly, not one snapper. Strange year. But, we were able to enjoy good company, stuffed flounder, and fireworks, so all-in-all a great weekend!
