Winter Is Just About Done
Well I think Old Man Winter is just about over with hopefully we got just a few weeks of this
nasty cold rainy weather left. And once it is over the gulf of mexico will heat up quickly both
water temperature and the fishing. Trout have been the targeted specieas now that the season
is open agin you can keep 5 trout per person and the slot size is 15-20 inches I have been
catching the trout in the creeks and coves with a water depth of 2-6 feet i hade a trip yesterday and today and Berkley Gulp jerkbaits have caught the biggest trout and shrimp will work great for bait. The Redfish are very spooky right now so a long cast is crusial the bait of choice is shrimp or fresh mullet when i say fresh i mean not the frozen stuff you need to cast net them. I would use a 2/0 circle hook and 15-20 leader the reds are 21-30 plus inches. Look for jumping mullet and nervous water for the reds. As soon as the cold is over and are night time temperatures star to get higher the fishing is going to be GREAT the bait fish will move back in and right behind are the predator fish spanish mackrel, cobia, shraks, and then the BIG BAD TARPON i cant wait so give me a call and book your self a great fishing adventure.
Tight lines and calm seas
