Due to some pretty cold water that moved both onto the beach and the inlet, the fishing slowed a bit over the weekend. Offshore, there are still some sails being caught on the bar out to 150’, although the numbers were not as strong as last week. In the 110-130′ area both Saturday and Sunday some decent numbers of dolphin were caught on both live bait and ballyhoo. The kingfish were spotty due to the pockets of cold water, but we did hear of some nice ones caught on Sunday.
Inshore, the inlet water on incoming tide was pretty chilly and slowed the bite a bit. There are still plenty of fish in the area but they probably won’t feed as good as they were until this water temp. changes. On the flats, the trout fishing has picked up a notch. Some nice trout in the 8 pound range were caught North of North Bridge and on the flats along Indian River Village. There was a nice school of redfish to the North of Harbor Branch but they were very spooky. The mangrove snapper fishing has still been good along the channel edges and deeper mangrove shorelines.
Have a great week!
