Well this is as long as we have gone before without an offshore report. I still have no reports from anyone who has passed the jetties in almost 10 days! I can assure you that my tuna hooks are sharp and my fluorocarbon is fresh and we are ready to steam East as soon as we get a day. I feel very confident there will be decent numbers of fish on the other side. Last year we had a couple of very good days to the North right abound the 1st of April. We have also had some great swordfishing trips this time of year, so get your gear ready because this wind can't last much longer (I Hope!)
Inshore fishing remains on FIRE!!!! I have talked to a lot of people who have caught plenty of very large snook on the flats. Fish have become receptive to top water and Spring is finally in the air (at least fishing wise). There have been good numbers of reds on the West shorelines as well as in the potholes on the East side all the way to Vero. There are also some fat trout still being caught. All in all the river fishing is really great! We are going to give it a try after work so hopefully we will have some good pictures up in the morning. Below is a picture taken by Doug Sapusek of Fathom27 Web Design. He and his friend Jim had a good day yesterday catching some upper slot reds and some nice snook. Most of there fish were caught on 4" Berkley Gulp jerk baits in Bone Jack color.
Have a great day, get out there while the fishing is good!
p.s. The snook fishing is still really good at the Jetty. The feather guys are still having great nights out there.
