Spring is in the air! It might still be on the windy side, but the warm weather is welcome for most anglers around the Treasure Coast. I finally got to pack away those long pants and shoes that my body just don't enjoy. March will continue to be on the windy side, but we have been able to find plenty of areas to enjoy the fishing and the fish are biting, too. Water temps are back in the mid 70's and life is wonderful on the water!
Redfish have been hanging in the usual places around the river. Docks, grass flats and mangroves are all productive now. We have been using DOA CAL jerk baits on the grass flats for trout. Try the paddle tail around the mangroves for redfish. Top water lures are working in the early mornings now and you will get some nice action now that the water is back to the 70's again. Jacks, ladyfish, mackerel and a host of other fish are in the river and will give you lots of action. There are still nice drum and sheepshead around the docks and bridges. We are seeing some nice keeper snapper again. March is always a super month to enjoy the fishing on the Treasure Coast.
