Bite Improving After Cold Front

Report Date: April 14, 2017

Fishing after this last cold front, slowed the bite down a bit. The water temperatures dropped about 8 degrees, creating dirty water in some areas. As the water temps and clarity continues to get back to normal, look for the bite to increase!

The redfish bite continues to stay consistent on the incoming tide. White bait and shrimp have been the go-to on a float drifting in-front of the mangrove edge and around oyster bars. Snook were a little shook-up after the cold front but have rebounded quickly as they start making the move to the beaches. Green backs and grunts can get a bite if their feeding switch is on. The trout bite has slowed a bit, but there's still some good size trout around in the 17-22 inch range. Greenies with their tail cut can get those lazy fish to commit as they don't have to chase it to feed.

Tight Lines,
