🎣 Daytona Beach News Journal Fishing Report: Huge black drum being caught in river 3-25-2020
"SURF, PIERS: As long as Volusia County beaches stay open, fishermen will continue to work those waters along the shoreline. Gene Lytwyn at The Fishin’ Hole said the water is fine for fishing. “Our unprecedented streak of warm weather has escalated fishing to new heights,” he said. “Surf and ocean pier fishermen have tangled with some line-stretching large bluefish.”
In addition to blues, anglers have been catching a wide variety of fish including whiting, pompano, Spanish mackerel and one cobia. The Flagler Beach Pier is closed because of the coronavirus outbreak. There is an extremely limited area to fish from the Daytona Beach Pier. The Sunglow Pier in Daytona Beach Shores remains open to the public."
🎣 South Florida Weekly Fishing Report - March 26, 2020
Though the beaches in Martin and St. Lucie County are closed to the public right now, the pompano bite has been excellent. They are being taken using Fishbites combined with sandfleas, shrimp or clams. If you’re an angler, live on the beach and like pompano you’re pretty happy right now.
At the Roosevelt Causeway there has been a really good snook bite at night. They are being caught on smaller profile baits like shrimp or swimbaits like a 3″ No Live Bait Needed. Also, from the bridges there has been a decent redfish bite. Live shrimp are working best.
Along the beaches in the Palm Beach area, there have been some good-size tarpon. Also along the beaches, and inside the Lake Worth Inlet, have been a few monster jack crevalle up to 40 pounds. At the Lantana Bridge there has been good action on sand perch and Spanish mackerel. The sand perch are being caught on peeled shrimp and the Spanish mackerel are being taken using small spoons and GOT-CHA lures."
🎣 3-24-2020 Coronavirus Florida: Manatee closing public boat ramps, to offer drive-thru testing
"Manatee County boat ramps will be closed to the public to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, it was announced at an emergency meeting held by the Board of County Commissioners Tuesday morning. The closures will begin 6 a.m. Thursday.
The announcement comes after both Manatee and Sarasota counties decided to shut down public beaches last week. But despite beach closings, boaters could be seen congregating over the weekend at places like Beer Can Beach, a northern extension of Longboat Key that was once known as Beer Can Island but is now patrolled as a preserve by the city of Longboat Key."

Public boat ramps are closed effective Friday, Mar. 27 through Apr. 14, with an exception for commercial fishing vessels to use only the eastern ramps on North Causeway.

🎣 Fishing Report White's Tackle 3-25-2020
"While the beaches are closed along the Treasure Coast, the boat ramps remain largely open. Offshore has been a bit slow, but there has been some decent Kingfish and Dolphin fishing, and Cobia are beginning to show up to the north as well. Fort Pierce Inlet has been a bit tough for Snook unless you are using live bait, due to very clear water conditions, Sebastian has been closed as with all state parks."

🎣 FISHING REPORT | On the water, give it some space
"Surf fishing seems to be hit-and-miss. The pompano should be here in good numbers. I know I fished for three hours around the low tide Wednesday and never had a bump from anything. I mean zero. Still there remain some reports of good catches of pompano, though smallish versions. That’s good news because it should mean the main body of the fish is still heading this way from the south."
