Had some time to go and scout some “spring” spots. Fish are starting to migrate, we caught tons of snook and doubled up on a few bruiser jacks

With the water temperatures staying around 60° the fish seem to finally be in their winter patterns. Speckled trout and sheepshead will be the most consistent fish to catch this month.
