June is in the books and what a great month it was for inshore fishing. Where do I begin? Since I like trout fishing so much, let’s talk about all the big trout caught this month. The entire month was great for big fish. The biggest trout landed this June was 26.5” around 6 lbs. On average, the fish ranged from 14” to 18” with a few over 20”.
Some days we’re catching some days we’re fishing, but no matter the outcome we had fun. Not only was the trout bite exceptional in June; I had some really good redfish days too. As June progressed and the water temperature got hotter, the ladyfish and bluefish showed up. In June and July due to the hot temps, I have to start my inshore trips around 5am and end them around 9:45. My afternoon trips started around 3:15 pm and ended around 7:45pm. Both trips have been very productive for trout, reds with some ladyfish and bluefish mixed in.
July will be similar to June’s trips due to the summer heat. If you’re looking for a professional inshore trip, then you’ve come to the right place. I pride myself on my knowledge on how to catch inshore fish on artificials and having top notch equipment like my Shimano Stradics and the best lures on the market that catch fish, including ZMan Baits and MirrOlure Baits. These two companies have been helping me put big fish in the boat for years. Oh, and I also own one of the finest boats around: the 240 LTS TRITON matched up with a 250 J Mercury Verado.
With my knowledge of our fishery, my tackle, and my Triton I can assure you’ll have the most professional trip possible.
Hope everyone has a Happy 4th of July.
