Just when I thought we were all into Spring I look at the forecast and Winter wants to make another appearance. It looks as though a cold blast will be hitting us at the end of the week into the weekend making for windy and cooler conditions. The fishing has been good the past couple of weeks with the stable weather conditions. We have been bringing several snook, redfish and trout boat side. The full moon brought some larger tide swings making for some higher highs and lower lows as far as tides. Look for the bite to be a little tuff through this late front and increasing as the weather starts to stable. Artificials and live bait have both been working well. Plugs and spoons early early in the morning and then moving on to soft plastics as the day moves on. Live finger mullet and shrimp have also been working well both targeting shorelines and sand holes.
