There are many attributes that make fishing a great sport. Getting outdoors, spending time on the water, bonding with friends and family — and the thrill and the challenge of the catch. While there are other sports or outdoor activities that might offer some of these same characteristics, there is one benefit that fishing offers that separates it from these others, and that is you get to eat what you caught.

Mild temperatures and calming spring winds make for easy and comfortable fishing conditions. As spring continues to progress, the whiting bite is going strong and the pompano bite is steadily on the increase.

And finally, just like birds and people, the further south these fish decide to travel, the more crowded their final destination becomes.
