Bluefish migrate up and down the Atlantic coast and they can be found throughout Florida as well. These fish migrate up north along the east coast in the spring and will stay through most of the fall. As winter approaches, bluefish will migrate back south to follow the warmer water temperatures. The fishing can be outstanding in late spring and early summer along most of the east coast. Summer fishing can be good too, however, when it gets real hot, the bite can be slower. In the fall, the bite picks up and stays strong as these fish follow the warmer weather south.
