    Father’s Day weekend was very successful for the boat the Salty Gills . Capt. John Gill put the boat on some Kings. Catching these nice fish was Summer Sheffield Gill and Chandra Sheffield Romano. Good job ladies.

    Inshore fishing has seen an upsurge this week. Black drum catches have increased over the last couple weeks, in the Tomoka area as well as the downtown bridges. Anglers have also commented that the mangrove snappers that they are catching have increased in size to mostly keepers now. Snook fisherman are enjoying more catch and releases especially after dark or predawn.

    The inlets are also witnessing some of these black drum catches, along with a couple redfish and mangrove snapper. Flounder are still active on sandy bottom, taking baits such as live shrimp, live finger mullet, live mud minnows, and various soft plastics bounced along the bottom. Snook and tarpon are being caught after dark, or early morning.

    Surf fishing has slowed down. Mostly whiting, and bonnet head sharks are being caught.

    Offshore, trolling is pretty scattered now. A few scattered dolphin and a couple smaller wahoo and king mackerel are being caught. The bottom is still good with grouper, red snapper, and triggers on the bite. Some anglers fishing the sandy bottom around the nearshore artificial reefs are catching good numbers of flounder.

    Summertime is definitely here. Get out early or in the evening to avoid the heat in the afternoon thunderstorms. Let’s go get em!

    Located at the foot of the Main Street Bridge, this fully stocked bait and tackle shop serves inshore and offshore anglers with its complete assortment of saltwater, freshwater and fly fishing supplies. The shop also offers line spooling, rod and reel repairs, and has parts for most reels and more.

    Nothing like a lady that knows how to handle a gaff!

    The kingfish bite has been on fire. There have been some nice sailfish mixed in as well this past week a little further south around Port Canaveral.
