    The inshore bite has been as hot as the temps here in SW Florida. The seatrout bite is crazy good around the grass flats in 3-5 feet of water. Shrimp under a popping cork is the ticket. There have been some quality redfish hanging around the mangrove edges and oyster bars on higher water. Free lined pinfish or pins under a float will work best. Just remember to get out early to beat the heat as the bite has been over around 11 am.

    The fishing has been really good both inshore and nearshore. The shallow water bite has been good for spotted seatrout and ladyfish. Plenty of keeper seatrout. Mostly caught in shrimp under a popping cork. The nearshore shark fishing has been crazy good with both size and variety! Cut bait and chumming is the key to getting them to feed.
