Finally the wind stopped, the temps are going up and it is starting to feel like south Florida. The ocean could settle a little more, the water temps need to rise but I am a patient person and tomorrow will be fine.
Let’s start in the river, Trout season is open, those Pesky Trout now have a bag limit of four not less than 15” or more than 20”, one per angler can be over 20”. Best part is they don’t know the season is open and the bite is on, flat south of the Dolphin Grill, north side of Nettles Island and north to Bear Point all report to many of all good size and the water is still cold. Red’s in the mix and yes the Blues and Mac’s also have shown up on the catch list, soft plastic baits have out fish live baits, even the Blues like them. A few Pompano in the inlet and a few across the Sail Fish Flats, water has to get a few degrees warmer for this species but that is only one day away.
Surf anglers had all the Blues they could want and then more, early late, you pick the time and the favored bait was cut mullet. Anglers were locating the fish then using spoons on the school, three to five pound fish excellent for the table. The bite was on from north to south up close and far out, action was on going. Yes there were some Mac’s in the mix but the Blues were in control, some Whiting and Sheep head both good sizes when the Blues took a break, but it was Blue Fish.
