3/30 to 4-06
What fun but challenging week at Local Lines Charters.com Book Now!! Lots of trout, black drum, redfish and a few missed opportunities on some stud snook. The end of last week brought us our first full moon of the spring and signaled the start of our seatrout spawn. Coming of the cold snap from the previous weekend and right into the full moon had fish moving and not wanting to settle. Not to mention the north winds from that cool front slap dumped the water out of the lagoons. Just about everywhere I’ve been that was completely grassless over winter (not normal; however new normal) has been showing good signs of growth. Let’s hope for a good summer growing season to give those fish something they like (health seagrass).
This week’s forecast:
Trout, Trout, and more TROUT…lol But for real; we are on the back (waning) side of the full moon and those mama trout should be very hungry. Please release all you trout over 24 inches! Trout of that size or bigger are virtually all female and our breeding stock. Topwwater plugs early and late, or a http://slayerinc.com/ (Slayer Inc.) SST. Massive amounts of bait are on the flats and these fish are looking for a meal. If you’re not as confident in your lure skills the just put out a few live mullet and let her rip. Hardy and plentiful its (mullet) the easiest of our baits to use! Tail hook with a 3/0 circle hook when your fishing stationary or “posted up”. When poling or moving to your next spot lip hook one and drag it behind you. That next big smash you hear at your 6 o’clock might be your bait!!
With South East winds predicted of the rest of our week and coming off that full moon (spawning event) the tripletail of Canaveral and the adjacent beaches should be hungry. Buoy fish will be present, but debris (my favorite) trips will be a good bet. Look to the bight, as it acts like a giant catcher’s mitt for that debris. The funky Cobia season might get a little kick with these winds also, so don’t be afraid to look. Bait (pogies) has been increasing with some solid mixed bag fishing and the tarpon aren’t far off. Summer will be on us quick. For my blue water friends, that wind should mean some amazing Mahi fishing also!!
Open Dates this week: none, few for next week so stayed tuned and get fishing
