Small trout and snook around the spoil islands and mangrove shorelines using live shrimp, finger mullet or artificials. Sheepshead and black drum have been prominent around the docks and closer to the inlet using shrimp. The pompanobite picked up this past week under the Wabasso bridge using doc's goofy jigs. (The colors of choice are yellow in the G3 series, chart/white in the original series and pink and white has been popular also in the original series.) Reports of some nice keeper redfish on the flats on the East side of the river.
Over size redfish and snook being caught on live shrimp and bucktails. Blues, jacks, lots of lady fish, spanish mackerel, permit, pompano, snapper, black drum and sheepshead have been the bite at the inlet this past week. Like last week, the bite started slow then gradually picked up.
