I know it’s March and it is supposed to be windy every day, but so far there have only been a couple of days too rough to work with.
Water temps have made it to the upper 60’s and the flats have come to life. We are catching Speckled Trout in the shallow flats and the deeper flats as well. Also the last several days we have caught our limit of oversize Specks.
Warmer water has turned on the Redfish in their usual places, such as shell bars and hard bottom areas. Reds are bunched this time of year, making it easy to miss them. They seem to be very aggressive when bunched up though, meaning they will chase down baits, including topwater. Very exciting!!
I included a photo of myself with a couple of nice upper slot Reds caught yesterday.
GOD BLESS, Good Fishing and Be Safe
