Father Time Gains Upper Hand
Redfish are starting to thaw out as well. March traditionally shows a good push of fish schooling together as they make an exodus from the backwaters to the flats. Often they can be found over and adjacent to the oyster bars absorbing some heat and optimistic about the possibility of some grub.
Snook are the last to respond to the warming days of spring. While many fish will remain in the backcountry, some of the biggest fish of the year will be caught in the following weeks. Large females are often the first to return to the flats in hopes of acquiring some protein needed to restore lost body fat and as a staple necessity to their reproduction cycle. While the neo-tropical fish were stressed by extreme cold the past few months, they dodged a bullet this winter by surviving in temperatures that everyone had doubt they would. Good news for this most prized species of the flats.
Spawning sheephead are making their annual appearance at all the traditional places. I made an offshore trip last week in hopes of loading down the boat with some over-sized hogs. With it being the one of the only nice days we had for sometime, we did not find typical massing in the likes of year’s past---- though we nail down some beauties.
