Jensen Beach Fishing Report 3-21-09

FISHING 3/21/09

Wind and more wind, it is written that March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb, so where is the lamb?
Off shore
the first three days of the week were less the comfortable but the next four were out of control. These strong (nice way of saying GALE FORCE) winds will move the gulf stream in and with it the weed lines and temp breaks that all hold fish. When it lays down I would start looking in the 30' zone for the Cobia and KIng fish, a sardine will catch both along with some excellent Snapper, look north of the inlet, in front of the House of Refuge. This is what happens when the wind blows and you have nothing to report you start to give away your favored locations. Catch zones will move in, have your baits in the water at 60'.

anglers that were able to cast four to six ounces put Blue fish, Spanish Mac's and Whiting on the beach. Pompano were north of the Power Plant or just south of the House of Refuge, good catches reported but no pattern to the time of the bite, anglers just had to put in the time, sand fleas and clam strips were the favored baits in these locations.

anglers an always find a place to hide from the wind and the best part was that the fish were there. Reports of Trout, Reds, Pompano and more from the Indian River all the way up into the North Fork have been excellent. Now is there is one group of anglers that like these conditions, bridge anglers with big Snook in their sights. With strong currents moving every thing around there is one fish that is strong enough to take advantage of these conditions, big Snook. Big currents, big baits, big fish please do not bring a knife to the gun fight. These fish will all be above the slot, twenty pound tackle, fifty pound leaders and you are ready, now you pick the bridge and hold on you are about to be tested. Please release these fish as quickly as you can, these are tomorrows fish stocks.
