January 18, 2010

I fished a few days this week and was eager to get back on the water. With all the cold weather and bad reports to the north I wanted to see what was going on. The fishing was better than expected and we managed some nice redfish plenty of ladyfish, trout and although I didnt fish for them plenty of big sheepshead to be caught. We were using jigs and live shrimp and they were working just fine. The only thing we didnt catch were snook, the cold weather stunned a lot of them and they were very slow moving. The weather this week has been perfect and the water is climbing back into the 60's which should get the snook moving back into certain areas to feed. Also on the nearshore wrecks the gag grouper have been hitting big trolling plugs and there are snapper and sheepshead waiting for a shrimp to be dropped down to them. The forecast for the rest of the months is perfect highs in the mid 70's to low 80's so fishing should be great. Give me a call and lets go fishing 239 404 6255
