—Although winter is usually the season of choice for big female sea trout, we managed to get half a dozen 20 inchers today. The larger females may be wandering back inshore after their spawn, and we were more than happy to reunite.

—Light line, small hooks, and tiny whitebait seemed to draw more bites than big baits today. It also allowed for the lazy, high-noon fish to catch the baits more easily.

—Try your luck by fishing the grass flats, and cast your baits in the sandy patches scattered throughout. A moving tide is more productive than a dead one in most cases, especially while it is hot.

—This morning’s wind whipped the gulf into a soup, but the mangrove snapper bite was as good as I have ever seen it. The strong tide, wind, low-light, and dirty water made these finicky fish feel more comfortable than they usually are. They seemed to have trouble seeing the hook, lines, and sinkers, and were easier to fool. Whatever the case, my clients managed to get their limit within an hour or so.

—Sea trout were eating well this afternoon, and we managed to get into some nearly every-cast action near the grass flats and channel edges with a moving tide. Pilchards, shrimp, jigs, and pinfish are the baits of choice for this ambush predator.

—Flounder are also showing up off of the beaches near structure and the sandy areas surrounding it. They feed on smaller fish and crustaceans, and will readily take artificials.
