clydes-red-mar-22.jpgHi Folks,

Although the recent cold front put a slight damper on things, for sure the spring fishing has busted wide open over the last few days. Over the weekend we had 3 consecutive days of double digit redfish catches. The fish were small, 17-18 inches, but very nice to catch on light tackle.

What made fishing even more enjoyable was my new Power Pole. Folks this is the real deal. Ease up to your fishing hole in under 8′ of water and push a button and you are anchored. No ropes, no chains, no heavy anchors and no cold wet hands. When you are ready to leave, just push the button and up comes the pole. You can check it out at http://www.texstackle.com/ Just look under the Products tab.

Now here’s my report:

Inshore: The redfish bite is excellent. You can catch these feisty fish on Gulp SW rigged on a 1/4 oz. jig head or on fresh cut shrimp fished on a carolina rig with a 1 oz. weight. The best bite is on falling water and on the docks in the ICW and the creeks. Bluefish are also biting around the inlets. A few specks are around for those willing to put in the time to find them. Best bait….Gulp SW.

Near Shore: The weather has been too windy the past week for boats to venture outside. When things calm down a bit this weekend, we might find that the bonito have shown up. At any rate they cannot be far away now.

Offshore: No Reports.

Gulfstream: No Reports.

That’s all for now. Until next week…..

Hi everyone,

Spring is just around the corner and the fishing is set up to come with it. Make sure all your gear is in order and ready to go. Here’s what is happening now:

Inshore: Large schools of specks are around but a bit sluggish when it comes to biting. A few more degrees of water temperature and they will be chomping. Red drum are patrolling the beaches and you can sight cast to them on a sunny day when the water is clear.

Nearshore: Some bottom fishing and the ever present dogfish (spiny dogfish shark) are around. False albacore sightings have been reported. Look for the bluefish to move in any day and right behind them will be the bonito.

Offshore: Very good bottom fishing awaits the hardy. Nice grouper and black sea bass are waiting for your bait.

Gulfstream: I have reports of a good blackfin bite happening and some nice wahoo too.

Take a moment to look at my new Nautic Star boat on my home page at www.rodmancharters.com. She’s beauty and rigged to the hilt. My newest sponsors, PowerPole and Raymarine have helped tremendously. I also have a new 101 pound thrust Minn-Kota trolling motor. The new boat is a bit bigger with a great layout.

We have had a great winter doing seminars and boat shows, but it is time to get back on the water. I am looking forward to it and hope to see you there.

Let’s Go Fishing!!!
