Summer time fun

Fishing report for the heat. This year's scallop harvest is a little tougher than last, but we have been able to stack some up in the coolers. When looking for them the best advise is to slow down while hunting. Many scallops are sticking closer to the sand or mud bottoms and deeper in the grass due to warmer temps. Always swim against the current to be able to see into the sea grass. Interesting fact, you may feel when grabbing one that the water is warmer inside their shell while they are feeding. Fishing has been good still. Redfish and Snook are sticking to moving water when the tide is low and hightailing it to the shade when tide is high. Moving water is oxygenated water for the fish when the temps are high. Use live bait when possible or use fresh lady fish chunks and wait it out for a good bite. The windy side of mangroves will produce better numbers due to the wave action stirring and cooling the water. Trout have been in deeper waters, with good numbers in a school, you just have to weed thru the small ones for limit, but at least they are biting. Use shrimp on a jig and bounce the bottoms, once you get a bite fish that area well. Tight lines. Capt. Mike Fishbonz Charters
