St Augustine Fishing july 8-14

July 8 – July 14

 This week Mon – Wed the fishing was pretty consistent fishing the afternoon tides. We were catching a good bag of redfish in the 20” range with a couple over slot fish in the 28” – 33” range each day.  It seemed like every day we were catching 1 trout, but these trout were big – ranging from 5 pounds up to 8 ½ pounds.  We also caught a few nice flounder. 

Thursday we switched to morning tides and the bite really fell off. We worked hard for a couple redfish and a nice trout.  Friday through Sunday on the morning tide the fishing got hot again.  These three days we were catching 10 to 15 reds in the 21” range, with a couple upper slot fish and some nice over slot.  These 3 days we also caught a few of those really nice trout with a few flounder in the mix.

St Augustine Fishing Charters July 1-6

The consistent redfish bite that had been so predictable slowed down a little this week, along with the trout bite that had been going off.  Mon, Tuesday and Thursday we didn’t have to work hard to find plenty of over slot and slot fish but Wednesday, Friday and Saturday we had to move around and fish very hard to find fish. With the big afternoon thunderstorms we were getting the end of last week and the first of this week a few of the areas that had been so consistent really got dirty with the fresh water influx into the system. The weather forecast for the next 10 days looks like a dry one, and I expect everything to get back to normal very soon.

The flounder bite around the inlet this week has been very good with some nice fish in the 2 – 4 lb range.  Any of your typical spots that should hold flounder (creek mouths, rocky structure and docks) are productive.
