Offshore: Dredge season is here, and Scott reports the sailfish are too. Yep now is time to put the dredges in the water and tease up some great sailfish action. Reports of 2, 4 and 5 sails a day have not been uncommon with many more “shots” being reported. A few dolphin are still being found here and there, plus some wahoo are still hanging around in the warm water along the ledge. The recreational season for Red Snapper opened last weekend, is open this weekend, and is also open to the recreational angler Friday 7/25 and Saturday 7/26. Anglers bottom fishing the Red snapper season last weekend all found good numbers of snapper to fill their one per person limit, but more incredibly was the size of some of these snapper. Red snapper weighing twenty pounds were common, with a handful even larger than that. Take advantage while the season is open. For more from 2013 Red Snapper season click here.
