The 2016 fishing season began this past week for me and we fished several days until the wind wouldn’t allow us to fish further into the week. The 1st and 2nd trips of the year were respectable with several nice size Bull Reds as well as several different species of Sharks. The 3rd trip we were restricted to just trying to stay dry and avoid rough seas. 2 out of 3 isn’t bad. With water temps still in the mid 60’s and baitfish scarce, I wasn’t to optimistic, but was happy about the overall bite and different species we caught. The last few days have brought enormous tides and small craft wind advisories, but things will be settling down over the weekend and I’m optimistic about the coming week. It really should just get better as the weeks come and go with more baitfish in our area, more species to target and warmer water temps. While we are off to a good start, I’m looking forward to even better action in the near future.
