Default Fernandina Beach

Today I counted +/- a dozen fishing boats scattered approximately 1/2 mile off the beach. They appeared to be stationary...perhaps drifting (calm day) or anchored. I was wondering which fish species they might be targeting at that location and this time of year.

Thanks

What is the water temp in the area.........if anywhere near 70 degrees.........they are targeting the one that must not be mentioned.
No worries the catch photos will flood the book of face about a month after the catching cools off.

If water still cold then probably winter sheephead bite on nearshore structure.

Yes I looked, and they just had that annual El Cheapo sheephead tournament.........so it's that time of year there for them.

Black drum migrating through. Got a lot of guys here that love to catch them. 40-90lbs. Catch 2-15 a day. Not my thing but others love it.
