Hello Fisherman and welcome to the Coastal Angler Magazine December Fishing Report. The offshore fishing will be epic this month. Sailfishing will be on fire, along with many other opportunities. With colder temperatures to our north this will put pressure on Palegic fish to move south. Monster Dolphin will be swimming with the Sailfish Schools. This fish school hunt and will pair up with fish the same size. It’s a symbiotic relationship that has been going on for a long time. Kite fishing will be the ideal fishing technique. Flat lines and slow trolling live bait will work too. There will be great Wahoo bite as well this month. Take advantage of the full moon and high speed troll early morning. Hooked up!
The inshore crusher will love to hear that the Inlet bite will be on. Tarpon, Jacks, Cuda and Sheepshead will feed on the changing tides. Live shrimp will catch every one of these species. There also could be a bonus Permit in the mix. Light tackle is the key. Another fish that will be invaded the beach is the awesome Spinner Shark. This fish will test any anglers skill. Cruise the beach and look for the schools. When you see more then five…. stop and put the lines out. Simple Shark tactics will do the job. There you go fellow Anglers.. let’s get it done!
