APRIL FORECAST and UPDATE
The first week of April started out fast and furious with good catches of trout, snook & reds as the water temps have been steadily over the 75 degree mark. I was also able to get out in the ocean a few times and had good catches of spanish and blues around the mouth of the inlet. I also ran into schools of big jacks, daisy chaining near the St Lucie power plant. Some of these brutes were in the 30lb class.
Heading into week 2 was a different story. A bright full moon, south winds, high pressure , and a crazy amount of Easter week boat traffic made fishing a real challenge. As of yesterday (9th) things have leveled off and the catching has picked up. I had a good catch of trout south of Bear pt yesterday with some nice spanish mixed in. I look for the rest of the month to be better each day as the moon wanes and the crowds thin out.
I’m sorry for getting this post out late but I have been “chained to the helm” for weeks on end.
I look forward to hearing from you.
