Hooter's Fishing Report - July 15-19

Published: Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 05:16 PM.

Pier/Surf

With the sun shining, a 1-2 foot wave rolling in, the water is back to normal at the Okaloosa Island Pier Tuesday morning. In the last couple of days anglers have pulled in king mackerel, bonito, hardtail, skipjack, redfish, bluefish and tarpon. Surf fishing for pompano, ladyfish and blue runners should improve as the water clears up.

 

Inshore/Bay

After the rain, fishing in the bay has slowed down. However, redfish are still biting near Cinco Bayou and Shalimar bridges. Speckled trout are few and far between, but the mangrove snapper (gray snapper) are biting well on live greenies.
