Water Temperatures Rising Provide Hot Offshore FIshing

This report from a local captain done for the Ana Maria Island Islander magazine talks fishing - local and getting hotter!

From the Ana Maria Islander:

Fishing around Anna Maria Island is shaping up again after a quick, passing cold front —hopefully the last cold weather as we greet spring.We’re seeing water temps are on a steady rise and the fishing results, too.

Offshore Temps

Respectable numbers of snook are taking up residence on grass flats awaiting the large bait schools coming from offshore. Spotted seatrout are following suit, staging in areas where currents combine with deep grass flats adjacent to channels and troughs.

Along the beaches, Spanish mackerel are free-jumping through schools of glass minnows and, just offshore, king mackerel are sky-rocketing from the emerald green waters.

A few captains have reports on the article. You can check out the whole report here.
