The sheepshead season is winding down, cobia are starting to show up in Charlotte Harbor and the weather, for the most part, has been fantastic. It looks like we’ve survived another Southwest Florida winter, so pat yourself on the back.

Spanish mackerel are making a strong early showing, pompano are on the move, snook are starting to pop as the water warms and cobia have already been reported as far up as the U.S. 41 bridges in the Harbor. Sheepshead are scattering from certain areas and stacking up in others in advance of the spawn, which generally takes place in March and April.
