Whats The Hot Bite? – Updated 6/2/15
Everyone asks “What’s biting this time of year?”. There is absolutely a lot of seasons fishing in these waters, all dependent on the time of year or more importantly, the water temperature. Fishing the Gulf of Mexico in our area mostly depends on the water temperature. We have the luxury of fishing for most species any time of year however the Feds have some ridiculously strict standards as to what you can keep. Below is a season chart that will explain when and what the bite is and when each season is. Please note that the “Catch and Release” list is subject to change at any moment.
