Wow, the summer is FLYING by… and fishing has been in the doldrums. Don’t get me wrong, there ARE fish around – just few and far between. Merry Pier, Blind Pass and other St. Pete Beach fishing spots have been yielding flounder, mangrove snapper, mackerel, gags (and a few red) grouper, snook and trout. Just not very big, and not very many. No sign of sharks, pompano, cobia, redfish….
Anyway, the plan is to head offshore for an overnighter on September 16th, once gags are back in season. Amberjack, grouper and snapper will be on the menu. Weather permitting… Stay tuned!
