Good morning, the offshore reports from the weekend were weak at best. We did hear that there were plenty of dolphin caught on Sunday. No particulars at this time but stay tuned for more information on the dolphin catches. Divers reported that there plenty of fish on the reefs along with sharks. Speaking of sharks the blackfin and spinner sharks are all along our coastline chasing after the bluefish and mackerel. Reports of bait along our beaches were scarce. For a tug of war there are plenty of amberjack over the reefs and wrecks.
Inshore, we did hear of some good trout fishing around the midway road area on the west side of the lagoon. This is the time of the year when you can expect to find some big gator trout on the flats. When fishing for gator trout it is best to be on the water before sunrise. Top water lures work well for gator trout in the spring and you can’t go wrong with live bait as well. As the water temperature rises the flats will be active early and late in the day.
Have a terrific day, Donald.
