The fishing has been exceptional this month of July so far. Besides a new State Record Blue Marlin being caught offshore of Port Aransas. There have been a number of blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dolphin and tuna being caught on the longer trolling trips. A lot of these fish are being caught off of some nice weedlines 50 -70 miles offshore.
If the trolling is not for you, there are a few boats, High Bid, El Gato and the Taryn It Up that have been catching limits of red Snapper, kingfish, some ling, sharks, dorado and other fun fighting fish on their 8 hour state water trips.
Another boat that has been venturing into federal waters and having excellent success is the Iced Down. Take a look at these pictures of dog snapper, ling, kingfish, wahoo and the red snapper they managed to get during the Red Snapper season earlier in June. Andy can get you on the fish.
The bay guides have been on the different varieties of fish too check out some of the pictures of the catches by Rene Lopez… and a special congrats to Rene for putting his best fishing partner Natasha on the fish for the Deep Sea Round Up! From catching her first redfish in January to winning top women angler of the Deep Sea Round Up, bay and surf runner up , first place redfish, first place flounder. They even had a shot at a Tarpon on the jetties! Way to go Team Lopez!
