Fishing Report Update 1/24/2018

Nothing to report about locally here… Word from most of the boats fishing are it is a struggle to put together a catch. The tog fishing has been very slow. Most of the local tuna boyz are heading or are already staged up and ready to hit the winter time blue fin off of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. February and March are the time when the start popping.

We got a report from some friends fishing down in Florida.

The Comanche’s are down south and having fun. They got into some good snook fishing as well as sharks on poppers. More details on this in future posts.

Yesterday one inlet jetty on Florida’s east coast was on! Summertime store staffer Nick D is enjoying college in the sunshine state and reported, “The whole jetty was hooked up for over an hour with snook. My buddy Andy got one good red!”

Andy Weatherford caught this bull red fish while fishing from a popular inlet jetty in Florida.
Here’s Andy Weatherford with his bull red.
