Captain's Corner

Captains corner: Rising water temps mean better fishing is on the way

Spring is near: We caught three tripletails within 3 miles of the beach. Schools of threadfin herring have arrived. And water temps have hit 70 degrees. Migratory fish are on the way.

Giant mackerel: With all the bait we have seen this week, kingfish could arrive in a matter of days. Anglers will be able to target sharks, cobia, tuna and snapper as well.

Tripletails: These strange-looking fish are strong and delicious to eat. They have two anal fins that resemble tail fins. They hang around any kind of floating structure. Watch around stone crab buoys and toss in a small live shrimp.
