March 2019 Venice Jetty Fishing Forecast
The sheepshead bite is strong early March because of their spawning time. Also when that water hits the right temps the pompano start running and thats exactly what has happened. The bait fish have become more plentiful. Trout have shown up as usual. Snook and Red fish remain closed until May 10th. The fishing has been so hot at the jetty you can hardly find a spot to fish. Get there early.
To catch the pompano get yourself a silly willy and a teaser (green and white colored work goood), tie them in a loop knot and cast it out as far as possible. Wait for it to hit bottom, count to 5 then start working it in.
Hit the docks at night later this Month for some good snook fishing. They haven’t come in from the backwaters fully just yet but are ready to feed.

You can always find fish around here in the rivers and offshore. FWC makes snook, redfish temporarily catch-and-release only in areas affected by red tide. Guided kayak fishing available at Jetty rentals at the North Jetty on the south end of Casey Key. 941-525-0117.
