Fishing Report Archives:
12/28/18 Colder temps are moving in which may send fish to deeper waters, but
the Redfish, and Speckled Trout are still fairly active. We suggest you try the
Intracoastal waterway and canals. This will also provide you with some
protection from the frequent north winds.
03/03/19 The water is getting a little warmer and speckled trout and redfsh have
moved out of the intracoastal and cannals into the bays. Some were caught this
past week on surface flies. There are still some pompano being caught in the
surf. Spanish mackerel will be showing up later this month.
