Inshore tarpon in the icw and inlets on outgoing tide during the evening, produce fish from 20 to 60 pounds. Live baits produce best results, those who  prefer artificial lures, jigs will get your reel a screaming. 

The back bays and canals are teaming with snook from sun up to sun down along seawalls and docks. Live baits have been the key, look for the snook near the surface basking in the sun. Night fishing is also another option for those looking to avoid boat traffic. Pitching live shrimp near dock lights is a blast and its is for the whole family. 

The grass flats are still full of the pesky ladyfish, but trout, redfish , pompano and snapper can all be found in depths of  2 to 8 feet of water. Live shrimp under a popping cork, or a buck tail jig tipped with shrimp produce fantastic results. Look for any sign of life while on the flats like manatees, dolphins stingrays and bait pods, all are great signals fish are near.

Bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee has been staedy as bass strike flukes on the surface worked on thick grass matts. Flipping ans pitching the lilly pads and saw grass provides the biggest fish due to cool water temps. The typical size of the bass has been 3 to 7 pounds.

Well that is the fishing report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Craig Korczynski,
