Good bottom action for grouper, snapper, sea bass, triggerfish and other reef dwellers. Amberjack begin to appear on the deeper wrecks, and by month’s end the spring run of mackerel will get underway. Barracuda start to gather around wrecks and artificial reefs. Inside action picks up for snook as waters warm up. Trout and redfish are hungry and targets. Sheepshead peak now. Spanish and king mackerel show up near shore and in Gulf Passes.
