Steinhatchee Fishing Is Very Interesting

Steinhatchee Fishing Reports from
Steinhatchee Fishing Guide Captain Steve Kroll

pepperfish_key_galmour_shotHey Y’all!
These days fishing is very interesting, as well as exciting!

I say that because Trout limits have been difficult and Redfish have been easy. Not usually the case.

My parties and I have had to cull oversize Reds to catch limits of keeper size, and one day this week we had to move out of?a location in order to try to catch keeper size Trout. Not because the fish short-they were BIG!

In Florida, we are allowed to keep one Trout per person over 20″. GET THE PICTURE! It was a BIG WEEK. I like to call this a “luxury problem”. When you add Cobia, Jack Crevalle  and Big Bluefish–somebody is going to get their string pulled. Offshore fishing has been good as well.

God Bless, Good Luck and Good Fishing
