Trout- The bite is hot right now ( its actually more like on fire) everywhere from the inlets to up the rivers and creeks in the area. Live shrimp as always are a favorite when it comes to live bait. Soft plastic wise the Z-man trout tricks, Zoom jerk shads, Berkeley Gulp 4in shrimp have been doing the trick for us. 808 and Electric chicken color in Mirr O Lure have been getting the job done with the hard baits. Early morning top water bite has also been strong on Skitter Vs and Hedden Super Spooks. Our advice on targeting them is to find tide rips/drops offs to fish.
Redfish- Still can be found throughout the marsh and are currently schooling in the surf and some inside. Live mullet or Mud Minnows on Carolina rigs seem to be doing the trick. Can also be caught on a variety of soft plastics (Egret, Z Mann, and Berkeley). As with trout the early morning top water bite has been pretty good on schooling fish. Our advice for targeting them is fish the surf or really just pound the marshes and bays on the inside.
Flounder- Are being caught along the marshes while searching for Reds, are advice on targeting them is jigging the docks in the water way with bucktails or slow retrieving Carolina rigs with mud minnows or mullet down them.
Black Drum- Small ones being caught in deep holes up the white oak on frozen shrimp and bottom rigs.
Spots – Still can be found in the ICW on fish bites and bloodworms.
