May 5, 2023 Inshore Report

May has arrived! Mid spring and the fishing is stellar as weather conditions in south Florida continue to shine. Hot weather, warm water temps perfect conditions to keep the fish chewing.

The Silver King, “Tarpon”, are abundant all through the local waterways. The juvenile Tarpon are in the back country areas along mangrove shorelines, the bigger tarpon are roaming the deeper cuts and channels chasing bait schools. As we get closer to summer, the bigger fish are going to start coming down the beaches and and lingering in local inlets. Live bait will definitely get the bite, but you can’t go wrong with throwing a DOA Terror Eyz.

The snook are on the move! Bigger snook are starting to migrate to local inlets getting ready for the upcoming spawn. Plenty of snook around docks, seawalls and mangrove shorelines to keep anglers busy. Present a live bait or a DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail, to get the drag screaming.

While targeting snook and tarpon, there are plenty of other species being caught as well. Triple tail, jacks, sharks, ladyfish, bluefish, snapper, and many others to put a bend in the rod.

Well, that is the fishing report for the past week. Remember, you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight lines!
