Spring fishing has been terrific so far, at least when the weather has cooperated. Stormy and windy days have troubled pier anglers and boaters, but when the blue skies have been out, people have been catching fish. The biggest successes have been on sea mullet (whiting) on the piers, redfish inshore, and black drum everywhere.
I talked to Capt. Patrick Kelly of Captain Smiley Charters, and he told me on some days he has had to go to the dependable black drum for his clients.
