We’ve got a few days of calmer weather coming up, which will hopefully spur on some decent surf and offshore fishing, which have been all but unfishable. Inshore, Snook and baby Tarpon have ben cooperative, around shorelines and outflows with the higher king tides we’ve had. Redfish have been a bit tougher with the higher water, but some areas with firmer bottoms and shallower water have been producing, mostly on soft plastics. Trout have been abundant in areas with bait, taking everything from shrimp to top water plugs such as the Zara Spook and Rapala Skitterwalk. The inlets have produced Snook in good numbers, mostly on live bait and jigs, and Sebastian has also produced good numbers of Redfish as well.
