This was a tough week to be on the water. We had a big cold front push down in the middle of the week that stayed around through the weekend.
The cold temperatures coupled with steady wind was just enough to keep most anglers off the water. Even some of the most serious local anglers decided to take a couple of days off and let this cold front pass. With that being said, there will always be a few that will go under any circumstance.
I heard good reports of speckled trout, redfish, and stripers spread out across our inshore waters. The stripers are mostly being found further up river and in pretty good numbers at that.
These guys really put up a great fight but are still on a catch and release only status. If you have not tried this fishery out yet I would advise to give it a shot. They provide us with a great winter activity.
Another winter fishery that makes a stop here along our beachfront is the Giant Bluefin Tuna. They are just up the road off of Atlantic Beach as of this past weekend.
Once these fish make it there, they could show up here any day. If you have the proper tackle get out there and give it a shot.
My suggestion is to find someone to go with you that has caught one before because these fish are so strong it can be dangerous once you get one on. Good luck to everyone over the next week and remember...Safety First!
