March is here hopefully the cool weather fronts taper off. Warm weather has been showing as of late and water temperatures are on the rise. March is usually windy causing anglers to battle choppy conditions but well worth it for fun in the sun.
Snook fishing has been stellar do to the warmer water departures, seawalls, docks and flats are all holding good snook. Doa cal jigs and airhead doa all entice the snook to strike. Glow and gold have been the best colors for the snook. Top water bite for the snook is great during all hours of the day slow presentation entices the big females strike.
The grass flats will be holding a mixed bag of species due to the cooler water temperatures. Pompano, jacks, ladyfish, trout, snook and redfish will be holding on sandy bottoms looking to warm up. Live baits and jigs will entice strikes the key is to work the baits slow and drift with the tide. Depths from 2 to 8 feet hold fish, try fishing when the sun is at its highest point.
The sea walls are holding a mixed bag of species for anglers. Jacks, drum, trout and sheephead all put a bend in the rod. There have also been nice groupers near rocky shorelines and older sea walls. Plenty of snapper as well for those looking to put dinner on the table, all it takes is a live shrimp and fish on.
The fresh side largemouth bass action with top water baits is great from sun up to sun down. Doa cal 4 inch jerk baits and Doa airheads produce explosive strikes. Live shiners also provoke many strikes for anglers as well, usually drawing in the bigger fish.
Peacock bass fishing easy getting better and better as water temperatures start to rise with the warmer temperatures we have been experiencing. Fast moving baits trigger strikes as live shiners. Fly fishing for the peacock is great along seawalls and sandy bottom areas. The peacock bass are schooling together and are ranging in size from 2 to 5 pounds.
