The dog days are Summer of are almost here. Without a glance at a weather forecast I can assure it will be hot and littered with thunderstorms in the afternoon. Good news is, the best place in the world to be during the Summer is on a boat running and gunning from one fishing hole to the next ! Summer fishing is all about working the tides and the correct water column depending on the time of day. The water gets warm so it is important to think like a fish and make the necessary adjustments to keep a bite going at all times of the day.
It seems every year the biggest snook that are brought in on my boat are during this time of year. The big bruiser snook will be hanging in passes with strong current awaiting a nice sized sardine or mullet. With the prevalence of food choices for the predator fish in our area, live bait is very effective during this time of year as is cut bait when presented correctly.
Without a doubt a doubt there will be some memorable fishing trips this Summer so take advantage of the beautiful fishery we have here in Southwest Florida and get out on the water! Do not hesitate to call with any questions on fishing the area or to reserve your next fishing trip! As always..
You Got to make that Cast !
