This weekend was cold and windy - but that didn't discourage my diehard anglers. The patch reefs were on fire with mangrove, yellowtail, mutton and lane snapper. We got a few grouper up to 7 pounds some porgies, reef sharks, hog fish and a few spanish and cero mackerel. It was non stop action.
Yesterday was warm and sunny for a change. The water was still cold from the weekend - but we put together a nice trout bite a few sheepshead and lots of ladyfish in the backcountry. The gulf was good - not great for some nice size spanish mackerel a few trout and some small reef sharks. We finished off on the patch reefs for lots of mangrove snapper, some yellowtail a few porgies, one nice hogfish and a 10 pound reef shark.
The warm weather is on it's way and with it our tarpon will follow.
