Spring Is Here! (For Now)

We finally had a day full of perfect weather and almost non-stop redfish out in Pine Island Sound. Once the tide started moving over the turtle grass the fish came out in waves. The reds were a bit spooky with the calm winds but they're schooling up in big numbers just like they did this time last year. The water temps are still about ten degrees below normal, but that should change by the end of the week. I think we're in for a very good April, which is always one of the best months to fish around Pine Island.
