Fishing in February

Fishing in February has been pretty good overall.  We have had a lot of cold weather and wind, though fishing has been decent overall.  Sailfishing offshore has been steady, a lot of kingfish and mackeral around.  Bottom fishing has been good when there has been current on the reef.  A few dolphin and tuna showing up as well.  Backcountry fishing has been good when it has been warm though the cold water has been shutting things down when the water temperature drops in the 60s.  Some snook and redfish in the park, and tarpon fishing has been good when warm enough before and after the sunrise/sunset.    Capt. Vic Gaspeny has been catching quite a few.  Captain Rick Stanczyk has had nice catches of yellowtail, hogfish, mangrove snappers, and cero mackeral on the patches.  Capt. Nick Stanczyk on the BnM has had a few good catches of cobia, sailfish, mackeral, and reef snappers as well.  As it warms up through March fishing should really pick up as we move into dolphin/tuna season offshore, and tarpon season in the backcountry!  Stay tuned!
