June 2020 Venice Jetty Fishing Forecast
When the barometer is bouncing from the Florida pattern storms it makes the fish go wild. Been using a twitchin mullet lure parallel with the rocks and the snook have been hitting. Also using white bait being caught with a cast net and dropping it off the tip of the jetty has been working good to for snook and snapper. A white paddle tail has been working when the waters a little churned up, white paddle tail also working for reds and trout locally.
Tarpon should be plentiful in the coastal gulf this month as big schools of fish migrate along our beaches. They roll through the jetty pretty consistently through the jetty in June. It is possible to hook one from the jetty but getting out there in a boat is the way to go. Casting live crabs and white bait works well. White bait is also called Mahara and Sand Perch but the old jetty dudes just call it white bait.

For kingfish head offshore a few miles, look for birds and troll right through em with a big ol bomber lure.
According to FWC trout snook and redfish are catch and release only until who knows.
The water temp is warm this time of year so the pompano should be coming in through the jetty. Have heard stories of good pomp fishing in big pass with school bus yellow silly willy working.
To catch the pompano get yourself a silly willy and a teaser (pink and white jig with a green/yellow teaser work goood), tie them in a loop knot and cast it out as far as possible. Wait for it to hit bottom, count to 5 then start working it in.

You can always find fish around here in the rivers and offshore. FWC makes snook, redfish temporarily catch-and-release only in areas affected by red tide. Guided kayak fishing available at Jetty rentals at the North Jetty on the south end of Casey Key. 941-525-0117.
