Cool temperatures holding a lot of beach action to the south

Cool temperatures holding a lot of beach action to the southNews StaffSat, 04/17/2021 - 08:34 am By Capt. Chris Shultz, Fishing Columnist Chrisfishjax.org The spring warm-up sure feels like its taking its sweet time this season. The inshore fishing has been steady all week and the offshore bite was great during the windows to make it deep. While weve had a few nice days on the water this week, lingering cool nights and cooler than normal water temps are still holding lots of the beach action south of us.Inshore, the spring pattern is more apparent than off the beach the inshore water temps are climbing and fishing is in full swing. The creek action is mostly going to be redfish and trout, but the flounder are pushing in as well. The bigger trout are staging in the river and bigger creek systems for the spring spawn its the time of year to gator hunt if youre looking to check a trophy trout off your list. The sheepshead bite is still steady in the river with plenty of black drum mixed in if youre fishing the jetty. As it warms up the sheepshead will shift off the wrecks and inlet farther upriver, but for now they are still in the spawning areas. The bull reds and breeder size black drum are on the channel edges and the deep holes in the river and the inlets. All in all, plenty of options inside right now to get in on the action.Offshore, if you like to drag meat the mahi are starting to show up and Ive heard reports of some blackfin still around. The wahoo season is tapering off, but you still might find a hoo for some sushi out near the break. The bottom fishing is wide open out deep start in 115 and work out to 150 to load up on triggerfish, porgy, vermillion, etc. Wont be long till grouper reopens in May and you can add them to the list off those deeper numbers. Nearshore, the red snapper will chew all day if you just want a tug, or you can chase sea bass for the box and were getting back into the right water temps for the cobia to show up on the wrecks.Speaking of cobia, the beach run is still way south of us from the reports Ive had this week. A couple local guys with the itch have been making the drive to Cape Canaveral and report lots of rays, not many fish. Thats typical at this point the action has mostly been in the same zone for a month or so now, and they get a lot of fishing pressure. Once we get some warmer nights, more south wind, and see 70-72F water temps off the beach and not just in the inlets, they should start showing up here.The surf fishing has been heating up with the weather and the first reports of pompano are starting to trickle in. Again, were at the very start of the pompano run just need a little bit warmer water and its game on. The other action in the surf has been black drum and redfish, while the whiting are still thick. This is one of the best times of year to fish off the beach. The action is hot and the temperatures are mild. Bring some shrimp or fish bites, find yourself a slew, and enjoy the great spring weather with tight lines and sand in your toes.For any questions, to book a charter trip, or to send in a report and pictures of your catch to be featured in a future report send an email to Chrisfishjax.org.
