Generally the last month of the season is the best. That would be from mid-Feb. to March 15th. The fishing can be pretty hit and miss the rest of the winter. There is usually a lull in the activity this time of the year. Not saying you won't catch fish, but you will have to work for them.
I've been hearing, and I have to believe some of this, that the low water levels on the bay/river are keeping the big fish out in the bay until the very last minute when they run up do there thing and leave.
