Not much has changed from last week — we’ve still got some great fishing! We have enjoyed an early morning seatrout and redfish bite and a steady black drum bite.
In the early morning, the mullet pods have still been the best bet. topwater plugs are producing plenty of nice trout and redfish and also a tarpon here and there. As the sun gets higher, expect the bite to slow down. That’s typical this time of year.
Late evening has been productive for the bull redfish. These fish are on the edges of the sandbars that have a good drop off in all three lagoon systems. Large plugs like the Rapala Skitterwalk and Subwalk are always great “go to” lures. Gold spoons and swimbaits having been getting the job done as well. If you find some very finicky fish, a large mullet chunk presented in front of the school usually will do the trick!
