If bait is what you seek go no farther than the Sea Buoy and turn left or right. There are acres upon acres of kayaks both North and South. There have been some scattered sardines mixed in as well. There have been plenty of tarpon in and around the inlet and piles of snook. Christian "Capt. Murph" Springsteen caught 4 snook last night between 30-36" in a matter of minutes (so they must be really thick). I would think the kingfish and cobia should fire back off this week with all the bait, lack of swell, and clear water. In fact, all business should pick up with the building moon coming up.
Inshore fishing has been either really good to most or really frustrating. There are more redfish in the area than I have ever seen before. There are literally several schools of fish with over 100 fish per school. That is the good news. The bad news, if you can get them to eat you have really done something. There have been some super sized snook on the flats caught while pursuing the big red balls of drum. Get on them early or stay until you can’t see and maybe you will hook up!
