Here's a report from down south:
Fishing as of lately has been really good on quality trout and redfish. Our water has warmed up enough that the topwater bite is on. We have been catching lots of keeper size trout and a few up to six pounds on a variety of topwaters from medium size skitter walks to small size super spook jrs. Redfish have also been very active on top. We are now wet wading and concentrating our efforts in waist to knee deep water, although the bigger fish do seem to be up shallower. Darker worms rigged on 1/8 oz jigged heads have also brought us much success when the surface bait activity has been little or non-existent. As a plus flounder have showed up in really good numbers as many have come into our nets. One thing you do have to prepare for is the strong southerly winds that are prevalent this time of the year, but overall I would not hesitate to say that our fishing is as good as it gets in the spring.
