Fall Approaches, and the Fishing is Great!

OK, no cobia. That’s the bad news. The good news – pretty much EVERYTHING else is biting! Big mangrove snapper, black drum, keeper grouper, snook, mackerel, flounder – you name it. Snapper have been the primary target at Merry Pier, and limits of 12″-15″ are common. Drum and redfish are hiding under the dock, along with the occasional snook. And flounder are showing up in the slips – mostly smaller, but a few nice ones mixed in. Grouper are scarce compared to previous years, but legal size fish have been landed the last couple weekends. All-in-all, a great time to get out and drop a line.
