often keeps us on continuous action. At present, areas near the ICW have been the best producers, not many big fish but plenty of keepers. This month as the water warms up, especially in the middle of the day, trout will tend to move to deeper water and their bite will be a slight tap on your bait. The topwater bite should be a bit more consistent, so don’t rule out throwing one in all hours of the day. Flounder continue to get some press as their catch numbers continue to grow. I can honestly say that at the present time you can actually target them specifically and be quite successful at it – just like it was 10 or 12 years ago. Working the shacks along the ICW, oil field channels, shoreline drains, and even potholes on some of our flats have been producing good numbers.  I would like to thank Fishing Tackle Unlimited for supplying me with their excellent Green Rods. The sensitivity allows you to detect the slightest of bites and a strong backbone to properly land your fish. A great added feature are the markings of our gamefish legal lengths on the rod itself. Another product I would like to boast about is my Costa del Mar eyewear. Many brands brag about comfort – I get a good laugh every time I start looking around the boat for my glasses and I’m wearing them. The Costa comfort factor and the 580 lens technology combine to provide everything I need to protect my eyes and spot fish in the water. I will be attending ICAST this month and hope to report back on some new products that will make it better and easier for us out on the water. I will be spending most of my time between the Simms and Power Pole booths. Please stop by and visit if you attend the show. Stay cool and safe in the summer heat!
