June Light Tackle Fishing Report— For today's action call our "live line" at 866 259 4205
Our gentle June winds are typically light and refreshing, very welcome after the stiff breezes of May. Gone are the gusty days of April and May with them the rougher sea conditions. This is a much calmer time for the angler with concerns about rough sea conditions to head out to the nearer shore wreck sites as well. Grouper season opened May 1 and it has been "Katie bar the door"! The Snapper family continues to produce. The larger Mutton Snapper will continue to provide some exceptional days on the reef as they play out the last of their spawning rituals now. Yellow Tails Snapper and cousin the Mangrove Snapper are plentiful and tasty nowadays and become the stars on the reef for table fare species to target! Our elusive Permit is always challenging but June & July is a peak action time for these prized sport fish. Cobia remain in numbers and provide action but are now out of the "excellent" range let's say more the "good range". Spanish and Cero Mackerel remain in the "good" range and can be counted on for fun with lighter tackle. The predator action with Barracuda and Sharks continues to be crazy good.
Reef & Wreck/Deep Drop Species for June: Amberjack--Slow
Mutton Snapper--Excellent early to Good later in month
Yellow Tail Snapper--Excellent
Shark--Excellent--best shark fishing in back country
