Winds devastate fishing plans

Blustery gray skies made for a better day on the western lakes than it did at the inlet or on the beaches. The northeasterly winds have been devastating for fishing plans. Anglers heading to Blue Cypress Lake, Garcia or Stick Marsh can find fish along the edges of the Kissimmee grass or where there is moving water, such as at the spillway. Saltwater anglers might have better luck wade fishing protected areas like Jungle Trail or setting out from the east end of Wabasso Causeway.

Capt. Mark Dravo of Y-B Normal charters in Fort Pierce said anglers launching boats at area ramps early in the morning will find higher than usual tides, again. Use caution if launching in low light conditions. Dravo said it has been frustrating to fish this week with high winds, morning rains and dirty water. But the next few days appear to offer much milder fishing weather, and hopefully better action from trout and redfish around the mangrove islands on live mullet.
