South Indian River Fishing Report 1/12
Here it is 2016 and we have enjoyed another mild winter so far. A couple cold fronts have blown through with cooler temperatures, but not the colder weather yet. It has been a challenge most days with all the windy weather to cope with. A couple days a week we have had light wind conditions to get around the area and enjoy the fishing. Water temps have remained in the mid 70's and have given us a good bite. Check the weather before you head out fishing and plan your adventures accordingly. It has been another good week on the water!
Redfish, sheepshead and trout continue to be our best bite most days. Charlie, Chaz and Lani were on the boat this past week and had lots of fun with a good variety of fish. Sheepshead, jacks, grouper and snapper were some of the many species they caught that morning. David, Dave and Max were back again for another fishing adventure. The guys caught redfish, sheepshead, snapper and many other species. Jim was back with his group for a morning trip. They caught redfish, snook, trout and a host of others for a productive morning. My grandkids, Chloe and Brody, met me that afternoon along with dad, Rick, and grandma, Eva, to enjoy the beautiful weather. The kids enjoyed catching fish and being on the water again. A fun week of fishing!
The fishing hasn't changed much this week. With the warmer water, you can fish just about anywhere the winds will allow and catch fish. Docks, grass flats, bridges and channel edges are all productive right now. It will take some cold weather to drop the water temps before many pompano, bluefish and mackerel will arrive in numbers. Redfish, sheepshead, snapper and trout continue to be the best bite out there. Use DOA Deadly Combos on the grass flats for a variety of fish and small shiny jigs along channel edges for those fish. Docks can be productive with DOA shrimp, live or dead bait. It has been an awesome start to the new year and 2016 should be another year to remember!
Thanks to everyone who was part of 2015 with me. It was good to see many old friend and make so many new ones. I look forward to seeing you all again this year. Thanks for a wonderful year!
Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Thanks and Good Fishing!
