Fish The April Tides-March Fishing Report for Hibiscus By The Bay
Man things are really heating on the fishing front in St. Andrew Bay. The Spanish Mackerel have arrived as well as the squid. The sheepshead are biting and good catches are coming out of the pass. The most effective bait for the sheepies has been shrimp. Several of my neighbors have been out fishing and brought home quite a few spanish just trolling with a Mackerel trees or spoons.
The redfish have been biting great. Although, I have to admit in March I had a 3 trips in a row where I got skunked. Not even a bite. 🙄 Most of my success lately has been when I am slow swimming a Z-Man PogyZ paddle tail in the pinfish color, rigged weedless on a 1/4 oz, on a weighted worm hook. The last time out I had the best day I have ever had catching redfish. I caught six redfish and big ol’ trout. All on the Z-Man PogyZ in the pinfish color.
Off shore things seem pretty slow but in just a few days I suspect the cobia will be arriving and I have heard that a few pompano have showed up along the beaches. Fishing for most folks is improving and April looks like it should be a VERY good month to fish.
