5-Day Outlook as of 3/21/23
Fishing is good. The Redfishing is good and some Snook still around .. The Baby Tarpon fishing is getting better .
Techniques & Tips as of 3/21/23
Sight casting in shallow off color water is the best for reds and working points and shallow bays work best for them. Snook and Tarpon-- you should look for moving water and up large and small rivers. The Snook will start to lay up and you will find large ones. Move slowly and be quiet. CAST AHEAD OF THE BOAT-ALWAYS!
Current Conditions as of 3/21/23This week the weather a little wind but temperatures are very nice. Wind subsiding at weeks end.
