I don’t know of any Inshore fisherman alive that doesn’t like a little Trout fishing now and then, especially an angler who has access to saltwater without too much trouble. There’s no doubt, Trout are fun to catch when you find them in numbers, and their table quality exceeds any Inshore species available in most areas. As most Trout fishermen know, fish can be caught by the dozens in your spot one day, and then gone the next day to who knows where. Usually we find out real quick where they went. Probably some of your buddys’ fishing spot that..
Don’t rule out Tarpon Fishing anywhere from Georgia, SC, North Carolina to the Gulf, even in dirty water. Tarpon are a highly migratory game fish.

We have started learning incredible amounts of information about Tarpon Fishing, Tarpon..
Shark Fishing is NOT a sport of the past when using proper tactics and light tackle. In the Modern day of fast center console boats and King Fish Tournaments we are caught up in, one of the best sports that have gone past us on the wayside is Shark Fishing. We have all been there. In the middle of the Greater Jacksonville King Mackerel Tournament, the flat line gets crushed or the DownRigger clip pops and the excitement on board soars in hopes of a Smoker King on the line.

Sight casting for TripleTail may possibly be one of the most exciting angling experiences on the water. Many of us have seen TripleTail, but simply didn’t know what it was when we motored right by the fish and spooked it, or thought it was trash floating beneath the surface. The best way to describe what to look for when watching for a TripleTail is seeking out a brown paper bag floating an inch or two beneath the ocean surface. As you approach, it will appear to be an old ugly, brown dead fish with three tails floating out to sea..
One thing we can count on besides bad weather in March and April, is bottom fishing for Sheepshead. The local rivers and the Georgia Offshore Reef System become engulfed with these flat-sided speedsters. These striped toothy critters make for an interesting fishing trip when conditions are favorable to allow safe exit into the Atlantic. Although they can be a bit tricky to catch, get ready for war on light tackle when you hook one up 7 pounds or better! When jigging for Sheepshead, the bite you feel is almost like your hook found a piece of the structure to hang..
As the water temperature reaches into the low 60’s, prepare to fish for Trout in deep holes on the bottom. A shrimp tipped jig, live finger mullet or shrimp will work miracles to fill the cooler with decent size Trout. I have taken notes on this method of fishing for over seven years, and I will share some bits and pieces with you in this article. Fishing The Moon The success I have had catching Trout using this method has always been dependent on the Moon phase and current Weather conditions. The moon plays a major role in all types..

To most people, this don’t mean much, but to us Inshore fisherman, it means a WHOLE lot. That little drop in water temperature means something to us fisherman. Trout and Reds by the cooler full. Whether you’re a frustrated Trout and Red fisherman, or an Inshore pro, the pointers in this article..
As everybody knows, there is no real art form involved when it comes to catching Whiting. I have a few tips to offer for those who have problems catching these fish in large numbers or for those who want to take their fishing to another level. This is the time of year when these little hard fighting devils show up off the local beaches in BIG numbers. Catching 50 or more fish is not uncommon from March on through May.

If you can’t stand the cold, you may want to bundle up, grin and bear it and slip on a pair of Gloves.

You can make the ride in less than ideal conditions when fishing close to shore on certain bottom structure. Crabs on the Hook!
