While fishing excursions encompass literally thousands of techniques and equipment from battling huge flying tarpon to tossing light flies at red fish, a good old family fishing trip with youngsters is hard to beat. Today I had the pleasure of fishing with the Allen family again. Watching these kids progress as young men is almost as rewarding as watching them battle competitively (friendly…for the most part) on who caught the most, biggest and tastiest!
With winter wrapping up and the vernal equinox fast approaching, the spring “transition” will be in full swing. March brought the usual suspects with fluctuating temperatures and lots of wind. Unlike February and January where many trout and redfish were schooled tight, March has the fish scattered a tad. The good news is that with warming water temps, we get an influx of more species. Sheepshead, black drum, whiting and flounder have all been showing up!
