Fishing Report - April 16, 2011by Capt. Bill Baldus on 04/16/11
Our weather has been beautiful with temperatures in the 80s, sunny and a bit breezy; not unusual for this time of year when the trade winds blow. The steady south winds have the water churned up making for some difficult sight fishing conditions the last couple of weeks. The tarpon are here and finding them in this water is challenging but not impossible. You will see an occasional rolling fish when there is a chop but many of these fish lie suspended in shallow water.
Redfish and snook have been slow here in the middle keys of the 10k. Your best bet for sight fishing is on the outgoing when the water clears a bit. Start looking for snook on the beach. We have heard some reports of fish starting to show on the clear sand beaches to the north.
We will keep you posted,
Capt Bill Baldus
