Mackerel should be headed our way

The water temperature is beginning to rise and the King and Spanish Mackerel should begin to migrate back to the South giving us a better opportunity for a good catch of mackerel off shore in a few weeks.

The shrimp is expected to move back into our waters around the beginning of May to the middle of June, which always improves the fishing in our area. And the Bass should be plentiful around July.
