Fishing Report Week Of 2/20/2018
Red fishing is back and strong, Thanks to the warm weather it looks like the Red are in the mood to eat.

Seatrout, look for grass beds near the mouths of the channels Snook and Reds look for the mullet in some warmer spots and you should see them piled up but they have not been to happy with live shrimp not sure why, but they seem to be killing the artificial bait. The biggest thing I can recommend this week is take everything…
