Light Tackle fishing is very good and getting better as the water temperature rises in the shallow water. I’m expecting a May Worm hatch soon over in the islands. When that happens some wild light tackle fishing occurs. Wish I could predict exactly when and where that would happen! Mostly the light tackle action is on fish 17-23″ with some up to 27″. As April rolls on and the water warms the chance at over 30″ fish in the shallow water is very possible. Bottom line is action is great and the scenery is beautiful! Surface plugs are getting hit quite regurlarly now too!
Had some fun with a dad and his two young sons on Monday evening……warm all day….outgoing tide produced some real warm water (67 degrees) blowing out of the shallows and around points. Fish were real anxious. The boys caught plenty on the light sticks as dad coached….here’s one…..
Over the last few years I’ve really dug deep into the islands and their interiors. Running my judge boat up into areas where even small boats would get nervous. I love working those waters and catching some nice fish in them. Really cool stuff!
Some fun fish and as the water warms and the spawn ends bigger fish will be wandering into the island water looking for chow……..it’s all good!
