With Spring Break coming to an end and summertime right around the corner, we are gearing up for the warmer water and hot fish bite. The Sheephead bite has slowed down and the Pompano fishing is currently in full swing. Destin Inshore Charters has also been catching Redfish, Black Drum and a few Speckled Trout.
Our best bet for catching fish has been using live shrimp or live sand fleas. As the water continues to heat up, it shouldn’t be long before the live Greenies and Porgies start to show up. Once these show up, the captains will catch fresh bait each morning in their cast nets.
Redfish and Speckled Trout usually won’t eat anything else once the Greenies and Porgies start to show up. Fresh live bait is very important in our Inshore eco system. The wrong bait can set up for a slow fishing day.
