Weather or Not
However, as a farmer of the sea, I have become hardened to the surprises and variables of nature. Hopefully it is now all behind us. On those small windows in between the recent fronts we have had some typical and outstanding spring days on a variety of species.
Trout fishing remains
strong and for the most part, has been one of the best years in recent
memories. Fish are scattered throughout their range with the inconsistent
weather. Points, cul-de-sacs, the last oyster bar guarding rivers and
creeks, spoils and barrier islands are all producing.
Snook are feeding when the water temperatures are in their comfort zone. While the good olí days of yesteryear for the snook in this area are now just some fond memories, there remains some action for those willing to put in their time.
Easter weekend I will focus my attention to giant tarpon. As with everything in the adverse weather patterns, they have been off. With some luck the weather will now stabilize. Prior to the latest front and while in Boca Grande Pass early last week, I had taken a water temperature reading of 78 degrees. Meteorologists are forecasting a warm week and my fingers are crossed!
