Happy Easter weekend everyone. My plan was to splash the boat earlier this week and be fishing this holiday weekend. But with the rainy weather, we decided to hold off till the early part of next week. We sould be fishing by Wed. and hopefully doing some catching as well. Water temps are in the mid 60’s, and there have been some nice Bull Reds caught a few miles off the beach. Some of these fish will be making thier way inshore and we hope to bend the rod with them at the end. Lots of ultra-lite action for small Dogfish,Whiteing,Spots,etc, and possibly some early arriving small Sharks. We would like to see the water temps a few degrees higher, but that is out of our control. Within a few weeks though, there will be alot more variety, size and quantity. Until then we will be thankful for what Mother/Nature allows us. The weather looks fairly nice for the coming week and our inshore waters should be very calm and comfortable. As far as the bite is concerned, I will post an update by next weekend. Keep your fingers crossed and may you and yours have a Blessed holiday.
Winter has flown by, and it looks like Spring will be arriving in our area within a few weeks. Air temps look to be in the mid 70’s over the coming week, and hopefully water temps will be warming up as well. With our water temps still in the high 50’s, the nearshore to inshore bite may remain suspect thru the end of the month. We hope to see a influx of Bull Reds at some point, as well as some kid friendly species such as whiteing, croakers, small rays and dogfish(aka gummy sharks.) Until then, the boat will remain on stand-by. Hopefully by Easter weekend the fish will have arrived and we can get the season underway. 67degree water temps will be the mark that we are aiming for, and when that takes place, we should be able to catch some fish as opposed to just fishing. The parade of various Sharks will come soon after and before you know it, we will have a variety of gamefish to choose from. Always remember that the warmer the water, the more bait there is, and the more food source available, the more fish in the area. As for now, keep your eyes on the weather and hope that the fish get here sooner as opposed to later. Will have an update in a couple of weeks
