February has been a warm month with some record highs in many areas of the Treasure Coast. It has been a mild winter so far and Spring is almost here already. Water temperatures are in the low to mid seventies and the fish have been biting. Windy conditions are the norm this time of year so plan your fishing accordingly. Look for the rest of February to
continue with these conditions.
Variety has provided us with some awesome days lately. I guess the best bite has been sheepshead which is typical this month. John, Wayne and Carroll were out with me this past
Look for structure to be very productive this month. Sheepshead, drum, snapper and lots of other fish can be found around bridges, docks and channel edges. Bluefish, jacks and mackerel will be coming in with the tides and chasing bait. Tim and Emily caught lots of them on bare jig heads. Snook have been biting around the jetties, bridges and sea walls this week. Our trout have been in deep cuts this week. Redfish are hanging around mangroves and docks. The pompano are still in the river on the grass flats in three to five feet of water.
