nshore bite : The bait is starting to come into the bay and with that brings the snook out of the canals, rivers and backwater. Reds and snook are starting to hit live shiners on the flats, sheeps heads are still in good numbers on the rock piles along with spanish mackeral, mangrove snapper small grouper and a few flounder. Snook season opens on the 1st of March this year so come on out and get your snook on.
Offshore bite: We are still catching grouper on the bottom along with hog fish, key west grunts, and some bonito and mackeral are showing up as well. The water is heating up and the cobia will be on the prowl any day now, I’ve seen a few in my last couple outings but should get real good soon.
See ya on the water!
