The Catch
Black Drum
Grouper (Gag)
Snapper (Mangrove)
Spotted Seatrout

Shrimp has been our bait of choice for the last couple weeks, and it’s been working very well! Action has been very steady, using a couple different techniques. Fishing deeper creek mouths and mangrove shorlines with half a shrimp on a small J-hook and split shot can produce mangrove snapper, sheepshead, redfish, black drum, and grouper. Deeper channels and runs are holding pompano, seatrout, jack crevalle, ladyfish, and even small permit, we’re using 3/8 ounce bucktail jigs in bright colors like pink, yellow, and chartruese, and a small piece of shrimp for scent.
