Hello Anglers, Well if had to slow down sometime. The bite could not continue the way it was going and there be any fish left. March was great and the first part of April was pretty darn good but the bite has slowed for sure. I posted all redfish pics this month because they were the hardest to catch. We are still catching a lot of fish but the sizes and numbers are definitely trending down. Weekends have been a challenge as the boats are covering the flats like a blanket. It's so much better most of the time during the week than on a weekend or holiday. Boat traffic does make a difference. I look for the redfish bite to pick back up a little in May, it has slowed down in the past couple weeks and I think that the warmer weather will keep some of the pressure of the fish and they will pick back up with their normal patterns. Snook season has closed and the target on their backs should be lighter making them easier to catch. Trout, mackerel, and sharks will be the steady bite with plenty of action in water that is slightly deeper and cooler. If tarpon are your deal now is the time to get out there and play the game. I have a few tarpon trips coming up and am ready for the battle. Until next time, good luck and be safe on the water. Remember: don't let your kid be the one that got away, take them fishing!
