Inshore action has been steady with a good amount of red fish being caught in the creeks and lime rock outcroppings. These areas generate heat faster than grass flats, look for mullet schools they are a good key sign that red fish will be mixed in or close by. Live shrimp or pin fish is a great bait option right now along with fresh cut mullet. I like to work the incoming tides and first part of the outgoing tide for red fish. We are seeing schools of about a half dozen to a dozen right now. As the water temperature heats up, they will gather in bigger schools.
Nearshore waters are producing some very good sheepshead fishing in 10-15 foot of water on rock piles and reefs. Live or dead shrimp is my go-to bait but if you can get fiddler crabs sheep’s absolutely love them.
Little deeper 25-40 foot rang the mangrove snapper bite is very good along with some big sheepshead and some hogfish. Live shrimp with a hog ball jig is my go-to set up for deeper water.
