Fishing Report - March 1, 2011by Capt. Bill Baldus on 03/03/11
It is almost Spring and it feels like it here in the 10k this week. Our temperatures have climbed up into the 80s and the water is getting warmer. Steady south winds are also helping the water temperature bringing warm water from the south along with a few early tarpon starting to show. This wind has really got the water churned up making for some tough sight fishing conditions both on the outside and back bays.
We are seeing a lot of bait around with the warming trend. Redfish are around but fishing has been spotty depending on the day. If you find a calm morning, head out into the Gulf and look for some triple tail on the crab buoys. These guys eat a fly readily and really have some shoulders on them. A couple of 15 pound plus fish were caught here this week. Throw a POI Shrimp or DNA Reducer for these guys.
Trout are also a good target over the grass flats when the wind is down. Fish a Clouser or one of my favorite patterns, the Beach Bug.
We will keep you posted,
