July has been Hot!!, the weather has the water temp up to 90 deg in the back bays. After alot of west wind last month I started fishing som protected bays. On a recent trip we caught 7 redfish and a 5 ft bull shark. So even when the wind blows and you can't go to the regular spot, go fishing anyway. I have seen a few Tarpon in the area but have not hooked any yet. The snook fishing on the beach should be good now that the wind has stopped. My tip for the summer is go out early and come in early, beat the heat.
