Ten Thousand Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report
Inshore Report: 10,000 Island's 5/20/05
The breath of summer is beathing down our neck's. The sweat is starting to bead up on the fore head earlier and earlier each day. It kind of resembles the fishing ahead of us. The summer heat mean's an early morning bite, that usually end's by 9:00am, sending all the fish to deeper cooler water, and shade or structure during the heat of the day. With a good strong tide the inshore wreck's are the place to be!
You can find everything from monster snook, mangrove snapper, grouper, tarpon, cobia, permit and many many more willing to put a bend in the rod.
This time of year can get down right hot, but the wind's are gentle and the water is calm and clean. Making for superb boating weather, calm enough to run the flat's boat twelve miles offshore. Make sure you return before the afternoon thunder storm's.
The bait is plentiful, the water is calm, and the crowd's are now gone. Leaving the 10,000 island's empty ready to embark on a summer adventure for anyone willing to deal with the heat and big hungry fish. Everything that swim's through these water's are present,and looking for food, but do it early or you might miss out on the best day of your life!
Until the next report, tight lines and screaming drag's to all!
