Captain Charlie’s Fish Tales 3/30
Here it is the last days of March and it’s still cold! I keep wondering when winter will give up and let it warm up on the Treasure Coast. Winds continue to blow as well, but that’s a typical March for us. Expect more to come. Water temps have been in the low seventies and that’s good for fishing. The incoming tides have been bringing in cleaner water and that has helped the bite for us. It has been a challenging month!
Keith, Frank and Turner were back in town and we enjoyed a nice morning of fishing. The guys caught sheepshead, snapper and assorted other fish including an nice black drum that Frank caught to top off the day. Will and Jean have been out several times this past week with me and had some good success in catching sheepshead a lot. Jean had one day that she also caught two redfish and two nice pompano. Marshall, Jane, Nile and Tate were back again this year. Once again, sheepshead has been the best bite most mornings.
The Treasure Coast Casters had their monthly tournament this past week. It’s a wonderful non-profit organization for kids and I enjoy helping out. I had Josh and Nick this month on the boat. The guys were anxious to catch fish and it didn’t take long for Nick to start catching. He ended up checking in two nice sheepshead and two black drum for the tournament. Josh caught a beautiful slot redfish and couldn’t get a sheepshead to the boat. Overall the boys hooked seven redfish and got five to the boat. The last two they hooked were better fish and got off at the docks. Nick took first place and Josh won second place in the Middle School Division. We all had fun that day!
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby….it’s an ADVENTURE!!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
