Spring has sprung and so has the fishing. Ideally, by this time of the year you should have the dust off the gear or be shopping many of the great spring time tackle sales that are now taking place.

We are finally into March and the fear of any more winter weather is beginning to fade. In recent years we have been a little spoiled with mild winters with little rain. These patterns have helped contribute to the longer and more bountiful fishing seasons that we have recently experienced; however, due to this year’s colder and wetter winter weather, we can probably expect a more traditional fishing season similar to seasons past.

Sailfishing has been really hot just a few miles off the beach. A little farther offshore kings, cobia, and dolphin have been providing a decent bite. Closer to shore and in the waterway, blues, trout, drum, sheepshead and reds are there for the taking on the warmer prettier days. Wow! Hard to believe the fishing is this good and it is still only February.
