Captain Charlie’s Fish Tales 6/22
Rainy days continued again this week. Good to see the rain, but it is not always the most cooperative weather for fishing. Plan your days carefully and watch those skies around you. It’s been hot so far this summer and I expect it will be another hot summer this year. Water temperatures have been in the mid to high seventies as the rains help keep the water cooler.
This week was grandparents day for Eva and myself. Our grandkids, Chloe and Brody, are usually too busy during the school year and this has been our first chance to get them out fishing. It wasn’t the best day to fish with rain, thunder and winds all around, but we had a fun day with them and the kids caught a variety of fish! It’s always a fun day for me when the grandkids and Eva can join me. They are all anxious to get out again soon! Take your kids fishing! It creates lasting memories for everyone!
Offshore has provided dolphin, cobia, snapper and a host of other fish for anglers when they can get out on the seas. Inshore look for trout on the grass flats with DOA Deadly Combos in three to five feet of water. Top water at first light can find them in very shallow water. Redfish should be hanging around mangroves and docks. The snook bite around the bridges and inlets has been good for anglers using live bait. Snapper have been plentiful around structure with keeper sized fish in the river now. June might be a wet month, but the fishing has been good most days on the Treasure Coast.
Don’t forget hydration and sunscreen! Both are very important to your health and can prevent bad things happening!
Remember, as always, fishing is not just another hobby……it’s an ADVENTURE!
