2015 June Tides – Fishing in St. Andrew BayPinfish hanging off the hook on a topwater lure. That little fish actually struck at that big ol’ lure and hooked himself!
The trout bite has been very good, with the biggest trout hanging smack dab in the middle of larger schools of mullet. If I find a big school of mullet, I will cast my lure of choice at right angles to the school or directly behind it reeling in the direction they are moving. I really slow down the retrieve as I get close to the school, then ease the bait into the school so as to not spook things too much. In an effort to make the lure seem like part of the school, sometimes I will just let the bait sit still for a little while before working it. I’ll do this for topwater and subsurface lures.
I am told the big female trout cruise the grass flats in May getting ready to spawn. So if you do catch any big trout, please release them because they are the breeders.
Recent reports are that the Gulf Of Mexico is full of bait! So, its just a matter of you getting out there to give fishing a go!
My neighbors Gary Hatcher and Mike Lindsey got out on the Gulf in May and did REAL well catching Amberjack! Gary was fishing with our neighbor Bob Ernst, who has been kind enough to go out with some of the less experienced saltwater fisherman and give them some pointers. Mike was fishing by himself. Good goin’ guys!
We hope you get to get more fishing time in and fish the June tides! 😉
