April 19-21

Late season cold fronts can be a real pain when it comes to the day that is your time to fish. It can be a stalled front situation, so it rains all day or one that has enough “umphhh” to make it to the end of the state with heavy winds behind it. What these late fronts can do that are an anglers friend, is to keep our water temperatures in the prime range of the mid seventies. Cool waters that prolong the Spring fishery is good and helps keep the inshore bite rolling.

There are some big trout inshore around rocky points and submerged limestone bottom. Nearshore there are trout, Spanish mackerel, sea bass, flounder, jacks and ladyfish for good action on a moving tide. Historically, the “Bombing Range” is the place to be. It is located approximately four miles north west of the St. Martins Keys. Redfishing has been spotty with some pockets of bigger fish mixed in with lots of shorts. To weed out the small fish, use a live pinfish to catch the keepers. Snook fishing has been excellent with most fish caught off of western facing points but sand holes just offshore of large outside keys are holding the most fish. High incoming tide will be in the afternoon this Easter Weekend.
