April so far has been an in interesting month in Pine Island Sound and Sanibel-Captiva area, with a whole range species, from Mangrove Snapper to Black Tip Sharks. King Mackeral are in the gulf when you can get out to them. Tarpon in the area and eating bottom baits.
A recent cold front knocked the water temps down from 82 to 66 degrees giving the fish a bit of lock jaw while the water slowly warms due to cooler night time temps. I had 71.5 degree water in morning and 74.5 by the time we came in on 4/12/17. Trout is working well in the morning and Sharks and Snook in the afternoons. Bait is pouring into the region, the water is clearing up again and its back to normal patterns vs combat fishing battling 25mph winds.
