Good morning, strong winds kept most boats in port yesterday. Windy weather is in this weeks forecast and quite a few anglers are anxious for sea conditions to settle down, so they can try their hand at swordfish. Once the winds settle look for action offshore to include, dolphin, wahoo, kingfish and sailfish.
Inshore, the windy weather is something the snook fisherman like. Snook become active in the stirred up water and will hit live baits and red tail hawk type jigs. The turning basin and the inlet have been good places to try for snook over the last few days. As reported on Saturday, the trout fishing in the lagoon has been good. Anglers are finding trout in the deeper water pockets and are using live shrimp and jigs. Over the last few weeks folks have either shown us pictures or brought by a redfish they have caught using live shrimp or soft plastic lures.
We have just received a full order of First Light snook jigs in time for the opening day of snook season. Snook are open for anglers to take in the slot at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.
Have a great day, Donald.
