It’s Tuesday morning and I haven’t been putting up a lot of posts because My fishing time has been limited because of a work schedule, taking it easy on my shoulder, and our new addition, our 10 week old Pomeranian, Cooper . I am hearing from a lot of of my fishing friends and this past week sounds like it’s been less than spectacular. The pompano they are catching seem to be in the afternoon which is the normal pattern for our spring bite that in past years hasn’t really kicked in until after daylight savings time which is March 12 this year . Martin County beaches have out produced our northern end beaches all week . Powerlime , Blueclaw Crab, EZFlea, and Electric Chicken have accounted for the majority of the bites . We had some pretty good fishing in January when traditionally is a lot slower than February so let’s hope the month of March kicks in a good bite . Even the whiting, croaker, Jack, blue runner , and ladyfish bite has been slow . I’m planning on getting out this weekend and giving it a look . Good luck to everyone and catch em up . A quick reminder that The Indian River 3rd Annual Sand Spike Shootout is fast approaching but there’s still time to register . It’s a pompano and whiting tournament on March 18-19 . Go to their website for all of the information and registration. This is a well run and organized tournament and a lot of fun . Mike Conner spent alot of time and effort to get this venue going and he has passed the reins over to Troy Brown who is really committed and is happy to answer any questions you might have concerning this tournament . Go to their site and get yourself registered .P.S. I’m pretty sure The Snook Nook is the only store in the area that has a full supply of Fishbites on their shelves including the new BlueClaw Crab .
