OFFSHORE- Reports slowed a bit this week, but overall remain pretty good for those able to get out. Steady pick of springtime action continues on dolphin, blackfin tuna, cobia, kingfish, and the occasional wahoo. Springtime sailfish action remains good as well. Bottom fishing reports remain good, with some solid snapper reports coming in.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains pretty good right now. As is the case with most things fishing in our area, access remains the biggest challenge. The snook are biting at night around the bridges. Flair Hawk jigs, SpoolTek Swimbaits, and shrimp jigs are all catching the snook pretty good right now. Also hearing some pretty good tarpon reports around the bridges as well.
SURF/PIER- Limited access continues to keep the surf reports to a minimum. A few scattered reports of pompano, bluefish, and jacks coming in. Without secluded beach access or a boat it's pretty much a no go these days....On the positive side, when things open up it should be really good!
