Inshore: Fishing the last few weeks was pretty good with a good mix of species. Fishing the Stuart area with DOA shrimp as well as live shrimp produced redfish, pompano, black drum, flounder, sheepshead, trout, snook and bluefish. Fishing the flats that have some grass has been key. Work pot holes and channel edges, popping the shrimp cross or down current. Pompano have thinned, but are still a few around to put on the dinner plate.

Offshore: Dolphin, sailfish, kingfish and a few cobia have been the species being talked about the last few weeks. Weather as not been the best for us to get out, but we did manage one day that brought sailfish and kingfish to the yak. Live bait like goggle eyes and blue runners continue to be your best bet. Rig them up with a 50lb stinger rig and 40-50lb florocarbon leader. Target 60-90′ for cobia and as you head out you should find the kings in 110-140′. Sailfish will be in the 120-180′ and head deep for the dolphin.

See you on the water.
