The water has finally warmed up to around 75 degrees in the afternoon and around 69 degrees in the am.

Bait pods are showing up and?there are plenty of Spanish Mackerel and some Kings at around 25 to 35 ft.

At 50 ft around wrecks and strong structure there are plenty of Amber Jacks ( reef donkey’s) to play with and in 48 to 60 ft there are plenty of those endangered gags, and some keeper red grouper, the larger ones are still in 60 to 75 ft.

I haven’t seen any Cobia offshore yet. But ….. this means that the next 3 to 5 weeks are gonna be on fire, the fish are there and they are going to be hungry!

Bait of choice, whatever you put down, we were using sardines, threadfins and menhaden, plus live pinfish are best for Amber Jacks or butterfly jigs
