As the week went on we spanish mackerel became one of our prime targets. As for the bay as the bait fish move into the shallows the trout and redfish will begin hitting the flats.
The sheepshead continue to be a target but are expected to slow down as the month of April goes on. Usually when the sheepshead slow down though the pompano make their appearance for their spring run. In the mix of fishing for sheepshead and pompano we typically catch redfish in the mix. This past week we found some monster bull reds on the outgoing tide. In the back bay the trout and mangrove snapper are starting to show up and we are still catching redfish and an occasional blackdrum. Majority of the redfish lately on the docks have been under slot but there has been plenty of action.
Out in the gulf while trolling we are targeting spanish mackerel along with a few king mackerels starting to be caught. Bottom fishing we are targeting trigger fish, vermilion snappers "aka mingos snappers" and white snappers. The red snappers continue to be plentiful and amberjack have started to show back up with the water warming back up, both species continue to be closed but we are catching them for great photos and release them. Spring time is a unique time for our area to fish because there is such a variety of species to catch. Make sure to give us a call and get out on the water if you are planning a trip to Destin, Fl for spring break.
