Wed April 11th

This past week had some great highlights including the Yankees being swept by my Orioles as well as a great Masters tournament that saw Rickie place 2nd, a single stroke away from his 1rst major. As far as fishing highlights, ,, not so much. Basically we were on the water everyday over the past week and a half with just a few small Sharks and a couple of big Reds being brought to the boat. Hundreds of Whitening and dozens of different Rays occupied our time and luckily most trips involved young jr. anglers on Spring break from points north who were just happy to escape their cold weather back home and bend the ultra-lite rods on anything.  The coolest thing about fishing this past week  was the fact that every person on the boat was just really good company and they just enjoyed themselves and each other,and being out on the water.  This tough bite is really no surprise seeing how our water temps are cooler now than the latter part of Februarys water temps. The coldest April water temps and longest Winter season I can remember. With air temps climbing into the 80’s by weeks end, I think the worst is behind us and we should start to see some variety in Shark species as well as an increase in size. Also, I am hopeful that we can still salvage a Spring Bull Redfish bite over the next few weeks before water temps warm to the point that the Reds get elbowed out by all the other warm water species that eventually arrive in our area waters. As far as everyone is concerned, they cant arrive soon enough.
