3/22/19 March Florida Keys Fishing Charter Report

Good fishing with Steve, Logan, and Wayne. We had more of the late cold front, even chillier and windier this morning. Not too bad though and at least it’s been a gradual cool down so hasn’t seemed to shock the fish so badly. We hit the creeks to hide from the wind. Slow to start as the tide was ripping with the super moon. But we picked a few small snook and redfish. As the tide slowed, fishing improved. Once it really slowed down, we got swarmed with redfish for a bit. We moved around a bit and tried a few other spots. Nice pick of fish everywhere. Logan got a very nice snook about a 32 incher. Also even found a few small black drums. Wayne got the nicest redfish of the day about a 20 incher. All in all a great day! We never tried for tarpon as it just seemed like it’d be tough. Looks like it’ll be a little nicer tomorrow with the wind, but not suppose to warm up much. Then we have a other cold front middle of next week. Not going to do our tarpon fishing any favors in the short term, but it may be a good thing in the long run. This was weather we would expect back in February. Anyways at least the Keys is a dynamic fishery so we always have other options. Off tomorrow and then back at it Sunday.
