  • Cold, Rainy and Windy Tough on Fishing

    Hi Folks,
    It seems winter will not let us go. Water temps are still below 60. We had a touch of spring and the fish started to respond. The last few days of cold, rain and wind have shut things down again.
    As the weather settles down again in the coming days, look for redfish, black drum and bluefish to bite in the inshore waters.
    Just off the beach look for some false albacore and Atlantic bonito.
    The kings are still way out, but the Gulfstream, when you can get to it, is producing wahoo and blackfin tune.
    Hopefully we will have a sustained period of warm temps and calm seas...
    It is hard to believe that we are over half way through April. When the water temps hit 65 look for things to bust wide open. It is going to be a late spring and thus a late start to fishing.
