The weather for march has been all over the place in years past. Air temp typically ranges between 70 & 50 degrees their for causing both inshore and offshore fishing to be somewhat unpredictable. Offshore the swells can hit 4-5ft due to the high winds. With the high winds, swells, and slightly cooler than normal temperatures Amberjacks, Vermillion Snapper, and Triggerfish are what your going to want to target on nearshore trips. The Triggerfish season opens up on March 1st in AL & FL. If you book a trip early enough you can hit the trigger fish before they get the memo.
Inshore fishing has provided come consistency near the jetties with some strong Sheepshead and Redfish bites. If you are headed to the jetties or bridges, we suggest using fiddler crab and fish bits for bait. With fishing being thrown off a bit with the wavering weather patterns, it will soon gain more stability in the coming months. If its big red fish your looking for Dixie Bar at the end of Fort Morgan Road is worth the trip when the weather is conducive to fishing.
