Traditionally our winter fishery produces good numbers of inshore species which can be caught on lures or live bait. Pompano, Bluefish and Spanish mackerel make their first appearance in mid December. They can be caught on jigs in and around the inlets and along the intra coastal channel edges and sand bars. Red fish, Black drum, Sheepshead and Croakers will stage up along the deeper mangrove shorelines  and docks.  Snapper and grouper will also be in the mix along the channel edges. Snook will remain available as long as the water temps stay in the 70 degree range. Spotted sea trout fishing will be at its best during the coldest weather as they will stage up in the deeper canals and holes during these cold fronts. I look forward to hearing from you. Bring the kids. Give me a call and lets go fishing.
