The last couple days have been nothing short of fishy, any and every species you can think of inshore and nearshore. The sheepshead bite has been as good as it’s ever been getting limits and personal best fish for customers. Lane snappers are plentiful on nearshore wrecks and reefs and the redfish and trout have been keeping us busy inshore with a few snook mixed in. The cold hasn’t slowed the bite down one bit, fishing shrimp on jig heads for our bottom and structure-dwelling fish and popping corks for the inshore fishing. Sight fishing reds have been the go-to on grass flats, pot holes and mangroves. We’ve been catching upper slot trout and getting a few over-slot gator trout on every outing. The bite is bound to stay hot with some of these strong flowing tides we get in the winter months.
