The Catch
Black Drum
Speckled Trout

The fishing over the last few weeks has been getting as HOT.. The jetties are still producing but the trout are starting to get into their late spring pattern and becoming easier to target. The trout fishing has greatly improve. We are catching trout in 4 to 6 foot of water over shell and sand now. The trout have fallen for live shrimp on popping corks or tidal surge lures on 1/4 oz jig heads.They have transitioned from mud. The jetties are still on fire for reds, drum and sheepshead. There is non stop action out there for sure if you want some rod bending action.
