Mid April has started out with a great bite of many different species.  In the mornings with the Spanish Mackerels, Mangrove Snappers and Red Snappers in the bay have been biting on live shrimp on a Carolina rig or a fly line with a small 1/4 oz split shot sinker.


  The sunset bite is all about the Redfish and Speckled Trout on the grass flats with popping corks rigged with a live shrimp, small pinfish or finger

mullets.  Mirrorolures are also very effective right now.

The first day of Spring was a great trip.  The weather was calm and the sun was out.  We started out fishing inshore for some Mangrove Snappers and Sheepshead. 

Jr. Angler Patrick caught the biggest Sheepshead and he was all smiles for the rest of the day.  The whole boat ended up catching one or more Sheepshead and many Mangrove Snappers, we went thru 10 dozen live shrimp.   After we loaded up the cooler we decided it was such a nice day to venture out into the Gulf to go catch and release some Red Snappers.  Everyone on the boat ended up with a nice Red Snapper even the kids.  It was time to head in and get a group photo and clean the catch for there supper. Great times and tight lines.

March is starting out to be a great month.  The Sheapshead Migration out of the bays into the gulf has started.   This is the time of the year when the bite for Sheapshead is nonstop.  People that are not from the gulf coast are thinking Sheapshead is a trash fish, not here in the saltwater they are a great eating fish compared to the fresh water ones.  It is a totally different fish.  The Redfish on the Grass Flats are starting to pickup during the sunset hours and the Speckled Trout will soon follow once the water temps get up into the 70 degree range.  The Bull Redfish and Black Drums are hanging around the local bridges under the pilings. Live Shrimp, Fiddler Crabs,  or Small Pinfish are the bait of choice. Get out there and enjoy a great day on the water.
