Masters of Fishing: March 23, 2010

I fished Arthur Mann and relative Bobby Higgins this past week. We worked grass flats on a very windy and cool day and drifted for Sea Trout. By using jig heads attached to floats we were able to boat over a dozen Sea Trout with several going over 19 inches. Later in the day, we targeted Sheepshead along mangrove shorelines. Since the Sheepshead are spawning, they are very hungry and eating heavily. Many keeper Sheepshead were caught by Bobby as he seemed to have the skill for hooking these small mouthed toothy fish. AJ got in on the action as well and boated some nice Sheepshead. There was plenty of fish to feed the family so it was a productive day. AJ is pictured with his 3 pound Sea Trout and Bobbie shows off his 3 pound Sheepshead. AJ is the master of the Sea Trout and Bobby is the master of the Sheepshead. During the trip we got to see a Dolphin show us that he is the master of the sea.

The weather is very nice now with temperatures over 80 degrees. Fishing has turned on strongly and the fish are biting. Many different fish are eating the shrimp right now. April is getting booked up so keep that in mind if you are trying to fish during the month. Book early for prime fishing times! Today I had to turn people away because they waited until the last minute.
