Fishing has been good to excellent WHEN THE WIND HASN’T BLOWN. There have been few of those calm days, but hopefully that will change and we can get into a good rhythm.

Now here’s my report:

Inshore: Water temps have risen to around 70 and the spring weed is just about gone. Live baits are showing up. All this means it’s time for the reds and flounder to turn on and that is what is happening inshore right now. Best bait is live menhaden fished on a carolina rig.

Near Shore: Near shore fishing has been pretty much on fire when the wind is reasonable; We have had very good catches of spanish, bonito and even some spring kings. Most of the fish are being caught on planers and clarkspoons.

Offshore: The king mackerel bite continues to be strong in the 18-25 mile areas. Live bait, cigar minnows, ballyhoo…all are working well.

Gulfstream: When the boats have gotten out, I have received reports of good catches of wahoo and mahi, along with some blackfin tuna.

Upcoming: The first “In the Water” Rod-Man Fishing School is all set for the first weekend in June and we are looking forward to this big event. We will be doing it again next year, so if you missed out this year, contact me and I will get you on the list for next year. Speaking of June, it is one of our biggest fishing months with almost every specie active. Make plans early to join us for a fantastic fishing trip.

Until next time……

LET’S GO FISHING!!!
