Sheephead, Cobia, and Spanish Oh My!

This past week has been the busiest Spring Break that I can personally recall. Lots of boats going out and lots of catches coming in! We’ve had some beautiful weather with temps in the 70s and plenty of sunshine, with only a couple of days of rain towards the middle of the week.

The sheephead bite is still going strong and captains continue to bring them in by the boatload. They’re catching them on live shrimp and fiddler crabs at the structures.

Water temps are still on the low side due to the cooler-than-usual March temperatures, at around 65 degrees, but the Cobia are coming in. We’ve seen 30-70 pounders come off some of the boats this week, and the numbers are growing, so Cobia season is definitely in full swing!

Trolling for spanish mackerel has been productive as well, and they’re catching them with gold and silver spoons or tube rigs.

If you’d like to get in on the action, be sure to book a fishing charter with one of our captains or, for the more experienced fishermen, try a fishing boat rental for the day. We also offer fishing pole and tackle rentals, and have bait and tackle for sale in our ship’s store. Contact us for more information!
