Pre front, the bite was pretty good early in the week. Snook and reds were plentiful in the inlet and there were a decent number of tarpon and sharks off the beach — if you could get out and get to them.
Once the front went through and the temp dropped the bite became tough in the inlet and the lagoon. Water temps inside the lagoon were warmer than last week with 65 degrees during the middle of the week and the fish didn’t seem too mind the cooler water too much. Late week bite got better as the temps warmed up and fish became more active. Similar to last week there were plenty of trout, flounder to 5 lbs in the inlet and a few pompano inside and the Spanish Mackerel, bluefish and Jacks were thick along the beaches. We found a good number of black drum on the docks in Grant as well.
Overall, it was a good week once the temps started warming up again. We’ll have to see what the weather brings us for this upcoming week. If the winds stay down, we should have some good fishing.
