The inshore bite continues to suprise me. Even after brutal cold fronts a few fish continue to bite. Here is a short video of the action. See ya on the water!

You think we love to fish. Here is hard core fishing at it's finest from our friend Brian Jack..
Capt. Chris Dew and I had an opportunity to get offshore Sunday with the Richardson Clan from Charlotte. The weather forecast was WRONG... Forecast was for 10kts or less, actual conditions, 20kts plus... Thanks NOAA, we enjoyed that little trick... We made the decision to fish south as there was some good water down there a few days prior and we had not been able to get a good sat shot before leaving. Fishing ended up being fun, with a mixed bag of fish. We managed 2 Wahoos, both citation fish, one on the planer, one on the shotgun, both on big illander style lures. Normally, I like to fish a cedar plug on the shotgun position for tunas but the wind was suspending the cedar plug in the air so we went with something heavier. Glad we did because our biggest wahoo ate that bait.
Throughout the day we picked at a variety of fish including several doubles and triples of Amberjacks and bonitas. Despite the conditions we had a really fun day with steady action. Got word after we got back that one boat to the east had gotten into a really hot bite just inshore of the 100/400 and had a limit of Wahoos(8), all of them good sized. The fish are still out there and will be out there, all you have to do is go out there and find'em... We got some really good video while out there that I will be editing over the next few days and will get it posted on our youtube channel, this time with no Bob Marley... Apparently, postumously, he is really strict on licensing...
The weather made an extreme change on Friday evening. The weekend still turned out to be beautiful. A quick weather change always seems to make things difficult on the fishing front. As usually though, beautiful weather brings out the fishermen and naturally someone will find them. The jetties are still producing trout with live shrimp. The Sunset Bridge area has been producing a nice black drum bite with a few reds in the mix. You have got to be in the right spot at the right time! Live shrimp or fresh shrimp will catch them there. The shallow water is producing a good mix of reds and trout. Light jigheads tipped with your favorite soft plastics working them slowly will get an aggressive bite. Our best trip for this long weekend was this morning. We ended up getting 16 reds and 1 flounder to the boat. We saw several schools of reds with a few black drum and trout in the mix. I was shocked at how one trout hung out by the boat for several minutes. I believe the crew enjoyed seeing and catching. Conditions could not have been better today. It could be our last for a while. Middle of the week is going to be COLD! See ya on the water!
