Fishing report

Capt.  Gary Zink

Cortez Kat, Historic Cortez Fishing Village, Cortez, FL

Boats are light, so there’s lots of room to fish….

WHAT’S BITING??

Offshore fishing has been great.  Gags are still in close, inside state water in the 4 to 7 mile range- target hard bottom and ledges. Thewater has warmed up, the bait is thick and the Kingfish are here in full force.  Snapper and Amberjack are plentiful on your wrecks and springs.

6 hour trips

These day trips are averaging 150 Grey Snapper, a few Porgies, Sea Bass, little Red Groupers (for catch & release),  King fish, Spotty, and a  couple of Reef Sharks.

On the piers

Lots of Spanish Mackerel.  Bring some Squid Spoons, Crappie Jigs, or cast net White Baits off  the pier and  grab some Shiners.

Free line Sabiki Rigs on the edge of the schools of bait.

If you are looking for more information on fishing check in with one of our Anna Maria Island Vacation Rental Specialist.  We have canal front homes where you can store your boat and access the waterways on your own.  We will have an updated fishing report each moth from Captain Gary of the Cortez Kat.
