Fishing Flagler County and beyond
by Capt. Rob Ottlein | Contributing WriterRSS Feed
On each of the three trips last week, a snook was brought to the boat. All three fish ate live shrimp. All three were around 16 inches. This is good to see because last year at this time, the snook I was catching were in the 6- to 8-inch range.
So you think it's safe to swim in the ocean? Think again.
The conditions for fishing have not been favorable as of late. But isn't that typical for the month of March? Cold fronts and wind will have you watching fishing shows on TV rather than being out on the water.
Have you ever run into someone and they start talking to you and the entire time you’re asking yourself, "What’s this person’s name?"
Snook season opened Feb. 1.
Every so often, I get the bug to buy a new boat, and preferably something that can get into shallower water than my existing boat.
I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year and good fishing in 2013.
I hope everyone had a safe and merry holiday season.
Snook season will be closed until Feb. 1, but you can still catch snook as long as they are released.
Wind, high water levels and cold temperatures have kept a lot of people off the water the last couple of weeks. Those who have been venturing out have been catching trout, redfish, bluefish and some snook.
