Hey this Capt. Eric. Sorry for the slacking on the posts. I am going to sum up the fishing for the past few weeks in one post. I have been fishing quite a bit and it has had its up and downs. First off, the inshore bite has been slow. The flats are holding some smaller Trout with some Ladyfish and small Jacks mixed in to keep it fun. The water temp is 74. The action will pick up in the next few weeks!
The Sebastian Inlet, Snook bite has been decent at night on the incoming tides. I have been using live pinfish. Mostly Snook biting, only a few Reds. Watch out for all the dredging pipes in there at night! Jacks and a few Flounder during the days.
It was a really windy first half of March. Offshore has been blown out. So not a lot of days have been fished offshore. The past few days have been doable though. The Dolphin are biting in 140ft – 20ft. for the boats that can make it out there. The Cobia are popping up in the 60ft. range on scattered grass. Look for the free swimmers! A few fish also being caught on Turtles. Triple Tail are mixed in as well with the sea grass. I have had a few good days fishing for Cobia. No big fish yet seems to be a lot of smaller 20 – 30 lb. fish. If you enjoy a hunt, then Cobia is the way to go. My personal favorite time of year to fish!
