It has been a while since my last report. February and March were filled with rainy and windy days. This limited our opportunities for good redfishing on the flats. We did have some great days in the mix with flies and lures, though. Shad fishing this season was on fire. We have stocked up plenty of these oily fish for our upcoming shark season. Lately the weather has been great with temperatures in the 70-80’s. Water temp has reached 70 in most inshore areas and nearshore will not be far behind. We anticipate the cobia will begin they’re migration off our coast any day. The redfishing has gotten better and better each day.
They have been cooperative in creeks, flats, and on structure spots. Live bait, lures, and flies have been productive. The trout bite has really started to heat up. April and May will bring some of the largest trout of the year. The sheepshead bite has been excellent for the last couple weeks and should remain strong. Fiddler crabs and oysters have been the bait of choice and we have caught several small flounder and plan to target them heavily into the early summer. Spanish Macks will also begin to move into our waters very soon. So many options as we come into this time of year. We look forward to the summer fishing!
