Stuart Fishing Report 4-8-10

Thursday, April 8, 2010 70 Degree Trigger

Just as soil temperature sparks seed germination and air temperature invites blossoms, water temperature turns on fish feeding. In Stuart, our primary fishing inshore companions, namely the Snook, Trout, and Tarpon all seem to wait for the days when the 70 degree mark has been reached in their atmosphere (the water). It’s not a feeding frenzy but more like breakfast time on an early Sunday morning when you start to nibble on what’s around without a strong motivation to fill up in a hurry.

But most notable of the changes seems to be the crossing of that 70 degree threshold that invites the renewed activity for our friends that have been so hard to find over the winter months. And as consequence, our Wintertime partners of Ladyfish, Pompano, Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel all head off to the cooler waters they prefer and to play with others.
