Tuesday, May 23rd Fishing Report
With stronger tides from the new moon over the weekend, the Canal is still fishing strong. With fish size ranging from smaller schoolie sized fish in the east end, to larger fish up to 30 pounds as you move further west. Although the east end has these smaller fish, there are still much larger fish mixed in if you want to try and avoid the large crowds. These fish are cruising the middle of the Canal in all columns of the water. Early morning tides have made topwater plugs and jigs very effective, however you can still get fish on swimming lures like the Berkley Magic Swimmer. The fish pictured below (Red Top employees Bull and Ian) were caught on white pencil poppers right at day break. Definitely recommend waking up early before work and heading down there if you want to get on some quality fish while these moon tides are still willowing out. With the number of fish around right now, I do not see the Canal slowing up any time soon as water temperatures are remaining steady and the bait seems to be going no where. Have a good week and tight lines everyone!
