How can you describe our weather lately....simply beautiful! While April is typically windy this time of year, it has been absolutely gorgeous this month. Light winds and sunny skies have been the forecast most of the month. With all the spring breakers around the area, you couldn't hope for any better. Water temps have been in the mid to upper seventies and we have had a good variety of fish biting around the area.
I have enjoyed seeing lots of my annual customers back on vacations and made a few new friends as well. They caught a good variety of species and we shared fish tales and smiles. It has been another week on the water. Tom, Lisa, Owen and Ben caught lots of fish including pompano, mackerel, sheepshead and others. Cheryl, Frank and Steven were out a couple days and caught trout, redfish, sheepshead and many other species. Francis and Faith found trout and jacks on the grass flats. Annie, Brandon, Mike and Garrett caught lots of fish on a fun filled day. Wayne, Bill and Will also found a variety of fish on a windy morning. Steve and Michael found some nice jacks and a big trout to end a beautiful morning. It was fun!
Look for trout on the grass flats hanging in the sand holes. DOA shrimp or Deadly Combos are great lures for them. We have found our redfish in a variety of places, but the mangroves are one of their favorite areas to hide during the day. Snook can be found around the inlet, bridges, docks and sea walls There is also lots of other species to enjoy! April is a wonderful month to fish on the Treasure Coast!
It's been hotter than normal lately. Use plenty of sunscreen and drink lots of water. Bad things could happen if you don't! Stay safe and enjoy the fishing this month!
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
