This past week we have seen an increase in the water temps moving back to the mid 70's. With warmer temps look for the action to start improving quickly. With the arrival of baitfish snook can be targeted using pilchards on 3/0 circle hooks or for you artificial guys checkout the full line of live target lures at Mikes Bait House. Redfish can be found roaming the mangrove edges on the end of the incoming tides. Tarpon are starting to show up along the beaches and passes. Throwing bigger baits is key to hooking up some of these monsters. Here is a special trip with some amazing redfish action with slots and overslots being caught. The Pinkerton Family crushed the redfish.
Bait is back! With the arrival of pilchards and warmer water temps the game is constantly improving. Water temps have been climbing into the mid 70's and will continue to warm up this week. Bait can be found along the beaches with pelicans dive bombing them. I've found great action on the outgoing tides along deep mangrove points for snook. Redfish have been showing up on the later stages of the incoming tides. Here are a couple of nice redfish caught using pilchards with a heavy split shot under the mangroves.
