Today starts the day many sail-fisherman look forward to every year, the Pelican Yacht Club Sailfish Tournament. We have the VHF on and people are already calling in releases. I can’t ever remember having this ice of weather during the Pelican Tourney so we will see what happens. Day before yesterday the fishing was great. The Cowpoke had 13, The Reliance had 12 and the LoQue Se had 8 or 9. Hopefully the fish are still out front today! There have still been some nice dolphin, wahoo, and big blackfin tunas caught by the guys sail-fishing.
Inshore has been getting better each day with the water warming. We went from48 degree water to temps in the 60’s. The fish are definitely more active the last few days. The redfish and trout are plentiful! Redfishing has been good to the North of the bridges and the best rout bite has been South of the bridges. There are plenty of bluefish and mackerels to shorten up your soft plastics, and the pompano started coming beck in the lagoon with these more tolerable water temps.
Have a great day, get out there and enjoy the nice weather!
