sheeps on the reef

Fun time on the nearshore reef catching sheephead, snapper and margate for dinner!

Windy weather and cold temps will put a damper on the fishing if you’re looking for snook and other stealthy gamefish. But, there will still be plenty of other fish to catch during the cold fronts and heavy winds. The redfish were active last week on incoming on live bait. Outgoing tide was a little different with the bluefish smashing every bait. With the colder temps, things will change, but the action should be decent with school trout in deep water.

There’s plenty of bluefish, mackerel, jacks and ladyfish, along with some pompano, in the lagoon and along the beaches. If the seas allow, the nearshore reefs are holding plenty of sheephead and Margate as well as Lane and Mangrove Snapper.
