To much Wind
Posted On : 2016-04-06


Unfortunately it looks like the wind just isn’t going to let up for the weekend.  Forecast have the wind as high as 35-40 knots offshore and even upwards of 25 knots inshore.  Fishing still remains good when boats have been able to get out.  I’ve spoke with several people still catching good numbers of Sea Mullets and Gray Trout while fishing in the inlet and by the port.  Puffers, a few sea mullets and drum continue to be caught off the beach and pier.  Although we keep getting shots of cold air, water temperatures still remain fairly warm which should keep bluefish filtering in.  Spanish mackerel and even cobia shouldn’t be far behind them, as they start showing up with the warmer water as well.

Offshore was pretty decent a couple days ago.  Many people got in to good numbers off Wahoo and blackfins.   There was even a couple boats that were able to catch some billfish on Monday.  Island Girl charters set out that morning and managed to catch the first Blue marlin of the season.  Congratulations to captain Lucas Jolly and mate Brandon Peele.  With the wind blowing the stripes off the road for the next several days  we will have to wait and see early next week what the boats do again when they are able to get out.
