March came in like a Lion, whipping up the water in the Bay, no kidding. Winds blew steady 20mph gusting to 35mph for three days, mix in a little rain and you get the idea of conditions.
Surf has been a blow out, hard wind has kept most off the beach, and the Pompano were at Bath Tub access. The reef blocks that strong pull and the fish know it but now you do, so keep that in the back of your file. As the surf lays down the Blues bite will continue and the Pompano will be right there with them, water temp is the key.
River anglers were on the east bank hiding from the wind, flat water was the location. But it was also a good reason to fish the North Fork of the
St Lucie, a very sheltered area. Pt. St. Lucie blvd, go north, the salinity levels are high and the fish are there, Trout, big Pompano, Jacks, Blues and small Tarpon, Snook well the season is closed so we are not going to say any thing about the bridge. This area winds and curves with plenty of deep water, the turns are four feet on one side and twenty feet on the other, lots of water and again very sheltered. Blue fish so thick you could walk on them at the Palm City bridge, even the Blues wanted away from the wind, if only we could get the weather man to fish I know we could have better weather………………….till next week………………………………Henry
