We had a good weather week last week with some tough fishing for the snook and reds due to the cold water and a lot of weeds along the beaches and in the inlet. However, The pompano bite was good and there were plenty of bluefish and some mackerel around. The weeds brought in the triple tail along the beaches and into the lagoon as well.
Next week is going to be a busy one. Let’s hope the weather holds out and we get some calm seas. There is starting to be more bait around and the trout bite should get better as well, as should the snook and redfish bite in the lagoon. Live bait is best but artificial baits work well. If the water stays clear people will be finding tripletail on the channel markers. Live shrimp is your best bait for them. The forecast for the middle of the week is windy and next weekend will be windy, too, but the fishing should stay decent as long as the air and water temps don’t drop too much.
