Ed from the great state of Pa., fished offshore with a smoking north current,

Good catching Ed,

Hello fellow fisherman!
The spring season is here! Wow, there are some big fish outside in the deep blue sea.
The bull and sandbar sharks are along the ledges feeding on middle food chain species like kingfish, bonito, and cobia, which we are now targeting.
The kings are up to 30-pounds, and the cobia are average size.
Except yesterday Matt caught a 60-pounder.
Buddy caught a mutton about 9-pounds the other day on a wreck. Nice fish Buddy!
Brian and Michelle, caught lots of fish with their twins up the ICW. It was a nice variety of fish on light spin tackle.
Ray, had a 20-plus pound jack, a bonito, and so many lost mystery fish while wreck fishing. I suspect the fish were cobia, snapper, and cobia being gobbled down by goliath grouper and bull sharks. We were out gunned with 60-pound braid on the mainline. Nice boat Ray! We better start bringing the big rods.
To summarize, the ICW is good for light spin and fly tackle.
KIng fishing has been inconsistent, even though some fish are smoker size. Snapper fishing is doable.
Sharks are the targeted monsters, as well as the goliath grouper. African pompano,amberjack, and cobia are available when we can pull them away from the apex predators.
Good luck! -----------<*///><

Hello Fishing Fans,
The jumbo mackerel has been hitting fly, and top-water spin baits. Wow, is that exciting to see these big fish slam a bait in our clear green waters!
We did have a few cold days of weather, which stimulated a surge in the pompano bite.
Stephenie and Dan from NJ lost about a 4-pounder at the boat, along with some decent ladies.
Good Day Fishing Fans,
Most of this month was spent like January either in the grass flats or near the beach in the ocean. This weather so far this Winter has been unusually warm with a few cold days sprinkled in. Most of the plants are in bloom prematurely.
How does this effect the fishing you may wonder ?
Well some species like pompano,cobia and kings do like the cold water. Hopefully we will be obliged.
Drew and Neil from the Boston area ,had plenty of action with mackerel caught on fly, and spin tackle along with an almost limit of snapper on light spin equipment.
Most of our adventures lately have been in the back-country stalking jack and bluefish on top-water plug or fly casting for pompano and ladies in the grass flats.
When the weather has been conducive, the mackerel fishing has been producing limit catches up to 7-pounds on spin, and fly.
Giant jack, blues, ladies, and some limit snapper catches have also been along the beach areas.
