Spring has SPRUNG!!! The bait has arrived and so have the kingfish!! Larger king mackerel have been caught this week anywhere from a mile to ten off of the beach. Schools of larger whitebaits and threadfins can be used to target the kings. Trolling live baits is very effective! Look for birds diving on bait schools and larger frigate birds tracking larger species. Large permit can be caught off of the nearshore wrecks by using live blue crabs or shrimp. Red grouper have been plentiful as well offshore. Hogfish reports are still coming in as well as tripletail! try to target these species before the water heats up too quickly as they are both delicious eating!! Inshore fishing continues to be amazing. Pompano in the passes in great numbers as well as sheepshead off of the beach and around rock structure. Snook have started moving down the beach! Try using live baits or light colored soft plastics for these beauties and please remember they are still catch and release only. Tight Lines!!
