Bass Fishing at Roland Martin Marina

March Fishing Report

Pelican Bay has produced numbers of fish in the 1-3 pound range. Mostly male fish that are either guarding a bed or fry. We are in the period of pre and post spawn as well as spawning so moving baits such as Big EZ or Swim Jigs have worked well. Color seems to be white or shad colors along with Copperfield. Inside Buzzards Roost the holes and pockets around lily pads have fish hanging around them more in the afternoon when the sun gets up. Dead stick a Watermelon Red Zoom Super Fluke or a Gambler Fat Ace in Watermelon Red or Junebug. The Crappie fish are still biting around the Hog Pen and along the Rim Canal south toward Bear Beach Channel. Use Minnows around the cattails in 2-3′ of water . In the rim canal fish in 4-6’range. Good luck and stay safe.
