Late season cold fronts can be a real pain when it comes to the day that is your time to fish. It can be a stalled front situation so it rains all day or one that has enough “uphhh” to make it to the end of the state with heavy winds behind it. What these late fronts can do that are an anglers friend, is to keep our water temperatures in the prime range of the mid seventies. Cool waters for prolong spring fishery is good and helps keep the inshore bite rolling.  There are some big trout inshore around rocky points and submerged limestone bottom. Nearshore there are trout, spanishmackerel, sea bass, flounder, jacks and lady fish for good action on a moving tide. Historically the “Bombing Range” is the place to be. It is located approximately 4 miles north west of the St. Martins Keys. Redfishing has been spotty with some pockets of bigger fish mixed in with lots of shorts. To weed out the small fish use a live pin fish to catch the keepers. Snookfishing has been excellent with most fish caught off of western facing points but sand holes just offshore of large outside keys are holding the most fish. High incoming tide will be in the afternoon this Easter Weekend.
