Spring has arrived! Water and Air Temps will begin to rise and the fishing should heat up. Snook fishing will continue to be good around inlets, bridges and sea walls. The grass flats will be active with SeaTrout and Redfish. Pompano will be cruising the deeper flats. Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Jack Crevalles will be plentiful around the inlets and channels. Bridges will continue to hold Sheepshead, Jack Crevalles, Bluefish and Black Drum. The sheepshead was in early and many have already left the river. Docks will still be holding Snook and offer an excellent chance at a Redfish. Whiting, Pompano and a host of other fish will be feeding on the bait schools along the beach.
Offshore waters have started to heat up as well with Dolphin, Cobia and Kingfish taking top billing. There are still plenty of Sailfish providing aerial shows for Anglers targeting them. Sailfish and Dolphin have been found in the 85′-200′ range, while the Kingfish and Cobia have been found in 25′-80′ range. The bottom fishing is seeing an uptick as well with Mutton and big Mangroves being caught in the 60′-80′ range.
