Inshore we have noticed an increase in the trout activity around the docks on both sides of the Indian River. Using top water baits in the morning and swapping over to twitch baits as well as subsurface lures as the sun starts to come up, seems to be the best way to get a positive response from these fish.
The black drum have been sticking to the deep water around the channels and structure. They have primarily been feeding on shrimp and crabs. The redfish are schooling up very early in the morning but by 9 o’clock have typically gone down and we haven’t seen much activity from them after that. We recommend using cut bait on the flats or top water plugs when you can find the school. The offshore bite is picking back up and the tarpon have been very active around the bait pods in the nearshore waters.
