Inshore, the speckled trout fishing remains outstanding, with fish being caught on all types of artificials. Nose hooked jerk baits, 1/16 oz jig head under a popping cork, or an 1/8 oz jig head by itself in your favorite color have all been producing limits of fish. With many in the over 20" range.
In addition to the speckled trout, pompano, bluefish, flounder and Spanish Mackerel have been providing plenty of rod bending action. The deeper holes in the creek mouth and back country have been holding some nice pompano. A small shrimp on a light jig head worked well. Don't let these little fish fool you, the legal size for pompano is 12", and they give a good fight on light tackle. They are also tasty table fare. The maximum keeper size is 18" in length.
The Spanish mackerel have been both inside on the flats, and offshore on the scattered structures. Live shrimp or cut bait is always the best. Be sure to chum them up, and keep the bait moving to produce plenty of hard hitting strikes. Just recently on an inshore trip, we got the macks going in the river using this same tactic.
