    Indian River Lagoon Coastal Fishing Forecast: March 2020

    March 1, 2020

    For a number of reasons, I always look forward to the glorious bloom of my azaleas. Their magnificent colors are not only pleasing to the eye, but they also signal the end of winter and the beginning of the spring bait migration. As the days grow longer and the ocean begins its gradual warming phase, 68 to 72-degree range, the spring fishing bonanza on the Indian Lagoon Coast kicks in.

      As we welcome a new decade, it is once again time to reflect on the events and accomplishments of 2019 and count our many blessings. As passionate anglers we are truly blessed to live in Florida where spending time on the water and angling are year-round endeavors. I am also thankful for another great year of fishing with my clients and friends on the revered waters of the Indian River Lagoon estuary and the St Johns River. Thank you all for a year filled with adventure on the water and many great memories.

        Spring has arrived here on the Space Coast, and my focus thus far has been targeting trophy size redfish and black drum in deeper water. The flats fishing has been good when the weather is favorable and should improve as the silver mullet continue to migrate back into the lagoon. The nearshore tripletail and black drum have been good as well, but again in late March and early April Mother Nature holds the upper hand in determining where we fish.

          On the Mosquito and the Indian River Lagoons, water levels are in a moderate range and the water clarity is still dirty in most locations. Add these factors to the winds of March, and you have challenging fishing conditions. Although the conditions have been challenging, we have still managed to catch some very respectable redfish and black drum, you just have to work harder to locate and catch them. In addition, the silver mullet have returned to the flats in good numbers, so the top water plug action for sea trout is picking up in the skinny water.
