With the recent cold fronts, our inshore fish have scattered and have been pushed to deeper water and structures. Redfish have been really scattered around; look for areas out of the norm such as deep dock drop off of sandbars ext. Start with a jig such as a 1/4 ounce jig head with shrimp on the docks or deeper drop off of the flats. Thing are improving being it’s been 7 days since the last front.
For most of the inshore species, they will be in the same areas, and you can utilize these same tactics.
As the weather clears, look for the Redfish and Trout to move up on the flats with the big Mullet schools. Concentrate on areas with potholes, oyster bars and spoil inlands and shallow flats with drop offs. With small bait starting to show up, this is the time of
year where live small pinfish, grass grunts and shrimp underneath a cork will usually get the job done.
With spring just around the corner, Now is the time to start booking your spring and summer trips.
