Good morning everyone! The recent front has sparked some pretty good surf fishing, with plenty of great Pompano catches the last few days, and a few Snook showing up as well. There are also still some Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel around as well. Offshore, the Kingfish bite has been solid, while the Dolphin fishing has been hit or miss. Nearshore, there have been schools of big Jack Crevalle and some Tarpon as well. Snook fishing in the inlets has been good, but mostly on live Pigfish and Pinfish, artificials have been a tougher sell. In the IRL, Seatrout have been active on the spoil islands, being caught mostly on soft plastics, and Redfish are still being caught along the shorelines. There have been some pretty solid Snook catches inside, mostly on docks, but also on the flats. Good luck out there!
Synopsis: A light offshore breeze this morning will veer to a gentle northeast breeze by afternoon. High pressure will build over Florida and into the west Atlantic through midweek, resulting in favorable boating as winds remain at or below 10 knots.
