Early Spring SoWal Fishing

Been a long time since I stopped and wrote a fishing report.

We have not had a lot of calm days to get out this spring. The temps warmed up quick after the record cold of January and we had a few real pretty days around Valentines. Last week had 5 nice days but it went and got cool again. Big front coming through on the weekend that is supposed to have the temps back down to the low 60's next week.
