Exciting Fishing Action; Jacksonville Report by Captain Kirk Waltz
The fishing continues to be improving. Moderate temperatures have been unusually mild in the morning and have these fish really fired up preparing for the spring to come. Reliable bait numbers(fiddlers & shrimp) are high with scores of big predators in abundant supply feeding on them. Redfish, ringtails, sheepshead, trout, and black drum are still biting in decent numbers.
The big rocks are giving up some good numbers of healthy slot reds, oversized reds, trout, sheepshead, and ringtails caught in good calm conditions. It's a great time to get out and wet a line. The weather is nice, and the fishing is exciting. Good numbers of quality eating fish are available to take some home for the dinner table.
The offshore fishing action is in transition with bottom dwellers still around in decent numbers but, pushed out fairly deep.Some Snapper, sea bass,ringtails, and other bottom fish are available on the area reefs. Good numbers of big whiting are showing up on the beach, and many bull reds to 45 lbs are hitting them hard. If the warm trend continues it will be an awesome spring. You can't catch them sitting on the couch! There'll be lots of good action in the weeks to come. Come on out and let's catch some big whoppers!
