FISHING REPORT BY Captain Dave Lear:

July 30, 2014

The dog days of summer are here however some quality fish are being caught by those who brave the heat and thunderstorms.  To coincide with the most comfortable—and the best likelihood of action, dawn until mid-morning and again after 5 pm are the prime times to go.  Those windows also match up with this weekend’s Solunar tables based on the waxing crescent and first quarter moon phases.

Floating grass continues to be problematic, making lures with treble hooks difficult to keep clear. If you do have unobstructed water, Super Spooks and Skitterwalks with chrome in the pattern will attract the most attention.  Weedless or subsurface baits will cause less headaches.  A 5.5 CAL jerk bait rigged with a 5/0 worm hook or a Sureketch shrimp jig pinned on 1/8-ounce head will get below the vegetation and into the strike zone.  New Penny and combinations with chartreuse have been the most effective patterns lately. 

Redfish are much more tolerant of hot water and continue to roam the shorelines, grass points and inshore structure like oyster bars and rock grass.  An Aqua Dream 3/8-ounce weedless spoon in classic gold or pink will fool the reds, but the new Live Bait series with pinfish or mullet finishes are also good choices.

Targeting bait pods in the near shore depths is another summertime option.  Spanish mackerel, jacks, bluefish and even the occasional king mackerel will be chasing the sardines and pilchards.  Watch for the commotion and then idle close before shutting off the engine to keep the bait on the surface.

AND DON'T FORGET TO FILE THAT FLOAT PLAN.  FORMS ARE AVAILABLE AT FRONT DESK OF SHIP STORE.
