Inshore fishing is hot this weekend! Get out on the water and make a catch.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says he is seeing redfish schools in the back bay area. They are actively feeding right now.
It may not be the greatest weekend for fishing, but if you can avoid the storms, there are some opportunities from redfish to amberjacks, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.
Capt. Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina gives the latest fishing forecast for the Bay Area for the upcoming Labor Day weekend and the days that follow.
Capt. Dylan Hubbard from Hubbard’s Marina says the new moon is around the corner, which leads to moving water. Moving water means moving fish.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says anglers have been seeing lots of black drum, specifically inshore around the bridges. Redfish, snook and mangrove snapper bites have been good too.
It’s pretty active inshore, especially with the redfish. We’re coming up to that time of year where we see more schools of redfish in the back bay areas, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina says the full moon later this week means more moving water, and there should be more fish and bait moving around inshore.
Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says the new moon means we have strong currents. Water is flushing out of the bays, which means more bait inshore.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says he is looking forward to the upcoming new moon, which mean more moving water. It will concentrate the inshore bite during the day since they won’t have the natural light to feed at night. At night though, you’ll find a concentration of fish near those dock and bridge lights.
There’s still a lot of moving water on the back end of the full moon, meaning it is refreshing the bay and getting inshore fish actively feeding. As we move through the week, the bite will get tougher, especially during the day, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.
Around mid-week, a full moon will be coming through. That means more moving water, which leads to more oxygen and cooler temperature. That’s all you need to motivate slow-moving fish to feed more actively, says Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.
It will be busy out in the bay and Gulf this holiday weekend. Capt. Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina dives into how to properly handle fish and taking care of them in the best way possible. Release mortality could be very high when handling certain types of fish, specifically inshore.
Fish are congregating in deeper waters or shade to find some cooler areas. That also means they are more active at night, Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina. The new moon will also move that water around more to refresh the back bay.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina says the heat and slower water movement after the full moon could impact what bites this weekend.
Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says the onshore wind is impacting inshore fish like the tarpon, moving them off the beach. ‘Fish do move with the wind flows,’ he says. Speaking of inshore, the snook bite is hot right now.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says it’s a great time to do a little maintenance on the boat this weekend as a tropical system passes over Florida. After, once it calms down, those fish are hungry because they were hunkered down for the storm.
Monday’s new moon means there will be less moonlight, giving fish inshore less opportunities to feed through the nighttime, unless they find that artificial lights. Snook, redfish, trout, tarpon and sometimes tripletail, will likely be feeding in those areas, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.
Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says anglers are looking forward to the summertime patterns. Inshore, snook are starting to pack the passes.
This weekend's total lunar eclipse adds lots of water flow, which adds to clear water, low waves, and warm temperatures for great redfish, snook, plentiful sharks. Pompano are an added bonus.
