Fishing offshore has been a bit slow, with cobia being the best bet in around 90 feet of water. There are a few sailfish and dolphin out around 200 feet, and the cold front coming will only improve the sailfish bite. Snook fishing in the inlets has been mediocre, but the front should turn them on and move some bait around as well. Redfish action in Sebastian has been pretty good, with live mullet always a good bet. The Indian River continues to be good for snook and redfish along shorelines, with DOA Shrimp and Mirrodines being consistent producers. Clearer water and more sight fishing opportunities should follow this front as well. There have been lots of bluefish and Spanish in the surf, taking spoons and Gotcha plugs regularly. Good luck out there!
Synopsis: A cold front will stall across central Florida and the adjacent Atlantic waters this morning then retreat northward as a warm front this evening. A wave of low pressure will lift northeast across north Florida tonight and push a more significant cold front south of the waters on Thursday. Northwest to north winds behind the front will produce poor to hazardous boating conditions Thursday night into the upcoming weekend especially in the Gulf Stream.
