Jan. 2017/Dec. 2016
So far the warm winter gave me a chance to target one of my favorite species, the kingfish off the beach. Slow troweling spanish mackerel and blue runners was the bait of choice for the big smokers and got good action on whitebait when anchored up. The great fall run of kings off our beach continued all the way into Christmas, with a nice Christmas Eve king…
The inshore slam species have been cooperative too, with best bite coming on strongest tides around new and full moon action. The snook are finally starting to stack up in the winter residential canals and along with nice slot and a few over size slot reds. Mix that in with drum and sheepies and hopping residential docks working shrimp and pinfish can be a very rewarding day.
The trout bite has been very good as well with soft plastic artificials and live pinfish under a cork. This bite should only continue to get better as the cold weather pushes in.
