Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel - May through October
Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish are two toothy predators that spend the warm months around the inlets and sounds. They are schooled up, and feeding on Silversides, Anchovies and any other innocent baitfish that get in their way. Although they can be caught blind casting, sight fishing for them can be a lot of fun as they ravage a school of baitfish. Any lure or fly that mimics the small minnows they are feeding on will be quickly devoured. Both the Spanish and Blues are great sport on a medium-light spinning rod or a 5-7wt fly rod. Other fish, such as Ladyfish and Jacks are often caught while doing this type of fishing.
