Spanish Macks On The Attack In The Suds

Yesterday not only did we see a big cobia landed in the surf. There were some Spanish mackerel caught offshore and in the surf. They just showed up recently and are a lot of fun to catch. Flounder are also hitting harder in the surf and offshore. There is a great variety of fish in the surf to catch right now.

Stingsilvers, and shiny spoons for the win with the Spanish Mackerel. I like Kastmaters and gator spoons, two to three ounce tops. I grabbed a handful of gator spoons the other day and glad I did. Now to go try the surf to work on catching a Spanish mackerel later this afternoon and evening on that incoming tide.

Flounder are not only hitting more offshore but in the surf as well. Mike Givens … “I got this flounder while reeling in to check my bait.” Flounder will hit rigs when they are pulled through the wash just off that little ledge in the surf. This happens often, and when that occurs, start jigging for flounder along that ledge and in the cuts.
