March 2020 Fishing Report
In what is perhaps the luckiest month of the year, Captain Moe’s Lucky Fleet uses a bit of that magic, and a ton more skill, to bring in the big ones. Indeed, we can’t give all the credit to the “luck o’ the Irish” for March, but we’re not saying it doesn’t help. And if you’re looking to see some of that luck in action for yourself, now’s the time to book a charter boat trip with Captain Moe. You’re sure to have the fishing trip of a lifetime when you sail with Moe and his crew.
Keep an Eye on the Reef
Although it’s been relatively windy for the past week, there’s still plenty of fish to be had along the wrecks and reefs. And this abundance of fish is a positive sign of fishing to come, as it’s finally signaling an end to our winter season. Primarily, the fish we’ve been pulling in the most of has been our “Snappers.” This includes Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper and more. Additionally, we’ve been spotting Red Grouper and some Cobia, too.
The kickoff to Tarpon season begins in March! As the colder fronts finally recede, the warm spring tides bring with them schools of Tarpon. Currently, Tarpon along the keys are staying in the deeper waters. However, we predict this won’t last for long, and by the end of the month, these fun-to-catch fish will settle predominately in the flats. And while you’re on the flats, be on the lookout for Permit. March is considered one of the best months for this species of fish.
Even with temperatures still settling on something consistently warm, there’s some excellent fishing to be had out deep. Further out, expect to nab some Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo and King Mackerel. Also, Sailfish are at the tail end of their migration, so there’s still a chance for sports fishers to pull in some of these beasts. And as we see waters getting warmer, the fishing in deeper areas will stabilize and begin to be more abundant.
