Strong Sheepshead Bite

Report Date: March 31, 2018

In the past month the sheepshead bite has really picked up in a big way. We had 2 trips in a row catching 41 and 45 up to four lbs using both live and frozen shrimp on 1/4 oz trollrite jigs. Even in the inlet with dredging going on the bite has been good. Just outside the spanish mackerel are still there but will thin out by mid April.
Snook bite has been best in the St. Lucie River but moving into the inlet area.
Up to 52 tripletail for the year. Bite was red hot till the north winds stirred up the river but things are calming down.
Pompano and flounder have been spotty but put in your time and you will hook up. Black drum and croaker at area bridges.
