Cloudy weather, murky water could make fishing tricky

Fishing inshore has been steady along the mangrove shorelines for redfish, trout and snook, too. With temperatures having warmed up a bit, the snook really bit. Anglers must release snook until Feb. 1 when harvest season reopens. Live shrimp, artificial shrimp, swim baits and lipped plugs are all catching trout, although lush sea grass beds are hard to find.

Based on the wind forecasts, it’s hard to imagine there being a huge sailfish bite this week, even with the best captains and anglers in Florida out searching for them during the Pelican Yacht Club Invitational Billfish Tournament. Trolling will produce bites from some sailfish, bonito, blackfin tuna, kingfish and wahoo, but the bites would probably be more frequent if the winds were from the northwest, north and northeast, and not, as they are forecast, to be from the east, southeast and west by Saturday.
