As I stated in my column last week, all our fishery needed was light winds and a little warm weather, and last week gave us just that.
The near shore bite has improved with the arrival of Atlantic bonito and big chopper bluefish. Farther offshore, the Gulf Stream bite has picked up significantly as well. The telltale signs of spring are finally among us, and with spring break and Easter upon us it couldn’t have come at a better time.
