Fishing Update – August 2023

Hello Reel Deal Anglers! 

It has been a hot summer so right off the bat, if you’ve fished with us recently, we commend you! We have remained pretty busy getting folks out fishing and producing some great catches!

Throughout the month of August on our longer trips we have been happy to still catch American Red Snapper as our season goes through August 24th. The dates apply to charter-for-hire vessels with federal reef permits only, so if you want to catch red snappers with one of our experienced captains, book a 10-12 hour charter before then!

August we have also enjoyed catching and keeping amberjacks and some gray triggerfish as they are open this month only and will close September 1st. September 1st we will see the opening of gag groupers as well as Captain Steve’s birthday! 8+ hours are recommended for gag groupers and they will be open through November 10th.

On our 4, 5, and 6 hour charters we are excited to see that trolling bite pick up as we have been catching spanish mackerel, bonita, and barracudas. Generally the king mackerel will start to migrate down our coast sometime in October.
