Good morning, I unfortunately have not heard much to report today, however I can tell you the little that I heard yesterday. Here locally the dolphin are starting to make there push. A few fish have been caught recently and there are plenty more to come. Trolling ballyhoo is the most effective way to caught them this time of year because there usually so spread out. As the water warms up and the bait moves in to the areas where it can be caught you can switch to slow trolling live bait for them.
Inshore the redfish are still in abundance and there have been some big snook and trout caught on the flats as well. As the water warms in the coming weeks an early morning big topwater works great. There are some pompano still being caught and the bluefish and mackerel are still plentiful.
I heard a report from the Keys also. Everyone there, like us, is waiting on the water temperature to rise. There are however some permit and a few tarpon on the flats. I heard one report of a guide having 10 permit shots the just two days ago. If your planning a trip down there just hope for a little warmer water. That’s all it will take to get things really heated up.
Don’t forget tonight is the Ft. Pierce Sportfishing Club meeting at the Ft. Pierce Yacht Club. The meeting starts at 7:30. I’ll be there tonight giving instruction on rigging ballyhoo for trolling. Come and have a good time!
Good Lucking Fishing,
