Just when we thought all the chill of winter was past us with weeks of 80-85 degree weather, we got another small cold snap this week. The cool down shouldn’t make fishing tough but rather the opposite, it should make the bite better and also improve the water clarity even more. The cool weather will likely only last a couple days this week but we will take it while we can get it.
The fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon area a short distance south of Ponce Inlet has continued to be our main focus for this time of year. Fairly good grass growth and clear water have helped make the fishing a lot of fun recently. Both spin and fly anglers have been getting good shots sight fishing and we have also spent some time using other techniques when the conditions aren’t optimal for visually seeing fish in the water.
The Ponce Inlet area has been fishing its spring pattern with some big reds and a few snook starting to become active. The next few months will only get better as the weather gets warmer and our other target species like false albacore tuna and tarpon arrive.
Spring in Florida is one of the nicest times of the year with comfortable weather and fun fishing. Don’t miss out on this season!
Unusually warm weather continues and has brought about what seems like we will get an early spring this year. The fish are transitioning fully into patterns we don’t normally see for another month but that’s ok because we have been having some fun days on the water.
The Ponce Inlet area is starting to get more active with fish behaving like they would during the warmer months of the year and things should continue to get better in the coming weeks. Redfish and some snook will be our targets for these trips until the warm water species like false albacore tuna and tarpon arrive.
Mosquito Lagoon which is our adjacent estuary to the Ponce Inlet area has been our primary focus during the winter and spring months. The water clarity remains good for sight fishing reds and black drum with both spin and fly tackle. This type of fishing is challenging and rewarding, very much like hunting as we stalk the flats looking for fish to throw at. We will continue to fish this area when we can over the next few months through mid summer before we shift our focus to the tidal areas.
