Week 4 Report - March 2012 - Southeast Florida

Offshore the weather conditions kept many anglers and boaters at the docks. Those that found a window and rode out the rough seas found good fishing. On the troll in 100-600 feet, Weedlines and flotsam produced good results. Dorado (20-30 pounders), Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish and Sailfish, were taking bare and skirted ballyhoo, skirted strip baits and lures. Most were spread out over the depths. Small marlin were coming up to show themselves in the spreads. Further offshore Swordfish hook ups were heating up.

On the reefs and wrecks from 50-100 feet, Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snaller, Kingfish, Cobia, Grouper, Amberjack, and small Dorado, were taking baits from live pilchards, sardines, cut bait, jigs and artificals.

Near shore along the beaches, inlet and around the piers, Spanish Mackeral, Pompano, Bluefish, Blue Runners, and jacks were taking cut bait, shrimp, and artificials with bait tipped jigs producing well. Snook were around the Intracoastal docks, bridges and inlets in good numbers. The best bite was at night in the lights.

Even with rough seas, those that made it out found that any day is "A Great Day for Fishing."

If you are heading out watch for changing weather conditions. Don't forget to wear your PFD's.

Wishing all, Tight Lines and Screaming Drags!!!!
Stay Salty My Friends!!!!
