    FISHING REPORT by Captain Dave Lear

July 16, 2014

 Between the heat and thunderstorms coastal fishing has been a bit challenging of late, but quality catches are still being made.  Pam & Chuck Shields took their eleven year old twin grandchildren from California out on Saturday and caught trout plus some other fun to catch but not eat varieties.   Floating grass is making top water action difficult, but if clear patches are found the top water bite can be exciting early and late in low-light conditions.  Rapala Skitterwalks, Super Spooks and Hall em In Peanuts and Crazy Horse prop lures are good choices.  Chartreuse, bone and silver color combinations are always good this time of year. Toss the lure around potholes, creek mouths, oyster bars, rock grass and other inshore ambush spots for trout.  Reds are a likely by-catch in the same places, although a slowly-retrieved Aqua Dream weedless gold or pink spoon would be a more productive option for reds.

When the surface action fades, switch to suspending plugs like the DOA BaitBusters or Air Heads and work the mid- and lower water columns.  A Sureketch shrimp jig with the lightest head to reach bottom is another effective summer lure.  Action is more important than color in the deeper depths.  Flounder will find those same lures to their liking too.

Schools of Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish provide fun sport.  Both like a fast-moving meal and lots of commotion.  Spanish mackerel are harassing bait pods in the near shore depths of 10 to 20 feet.  Watch for the birds and showering bait, ease into casting range and quietly drift closer to avoid putting the pods down.  Shiny casting spoons such as Kastmaster, diamond jigs and Gotcha lures will put Macks in the box for anglers using medium light tackle to maximize casting distance.

    Happy fishing - a good day on the water is hard to beat!
