pompano250x200Offshore

Not many reports coming in from offshore, between the weather, red tide concerns and season closures not many anglers have made the trip. Quite sure there are fish out there to be caught but will have to wait on the weather and verify. Be sure to make yourself familiar with current regulations as there are recent and upcoming changes in both state and federal waters. Inshore wrecks though are producing quite a few flounder, some Black Sea bass, and a few black snapper. Live bull minnows and shrimp are a great bait for flounder and they will work for sea bass and black snapper but you can also try small frozen cigar minnows or finger mullet.

Surf

Along the beach the bite is getting better. Lots of Bonita, some flounder, whiting, redfish, black drum, bluefish, Spanish, and a few large pompano have fallen victim. Red tide seems to be dissipating, not gone but definitely much less prevalent. 

Bay

Better here too. Same story on red tide, not gone but not nearly as many reports of it. Reds, trout, sheep head, mangrove snapper, flounder, bluefish and Spanish mackerel are all being reported. Bait is already getting difficult to find so plan accordingly. Flounder, trout and reds all respond well to artificial but if you are after sheep head or mangroves you'd better bring some live bait. Creek mouths are good bets for many of the above, Deerpoint has also been good. The pass, Tyndall and Hathaway bridges are holding some big reds and some slots but they want live or at the very least natural baits. Incoming tides in the pass will also have bonita, small spro jigs are the ticket. Get out there if you can and if you get he chance let us know how you did. Pictures are welcomed and appreciated, you know the saying "worth a thousand words".
