This week there was some days to be had on the water. A handful of daytime temperatures pushing 70 degrees is just what an angler needs to get a rod bent. Not only does this kind of weather make the fish more willing to bite but make’s a fisherman think to get off the couch or out of the deer stand...and on the water. I made several trips to the boat ramp this week and was happy to see plenty of truck’s with trailer’s in the parking lot. That is always a good sign that the fish are biting. If you have to look for a spot to park at the boat ramp this time of year then the fish are clearly still around. We made our trips this week into the river looking for drum, trout, and a stray striper. There was plenty of of every species to be had. That is the exiting thing about fishing this time of year is that any given cast you could catch one of any three of these spectacular species. We found a creek with clean water starting to pour out at the top of the tide, dropped the trolling motor, and began fishing. It wasn’t long before I felt a tug on the rod tip and the drag started to pull off a little and shortly after we had our first striper of the day in the boat. We gave this fish a quick release and got back at it, finishing up the day with several stripers, redfish, and speckled trout. Don’t be fooled by the winter months, there is still plenty of action to be had on our inshore water’s. As I’m writing this article I’m in Atlantic Beach getting ready to chase Bluefin Tuna for the next couple of days. There has been several killed every day for some time now, and with the weather getting a little nicer they should cooperate. Next week I will feel everyone in on the trip. If you happen to make it on the water this week, remember to be safe and have a good time!
