Fishing, like the weather, getting hotter

Aside from the recent storm just off the coast, weather has been hot and it can be said the fishing has been hotter. Inshore, near shore and offshore have all been reporting good to great catches. I had one morning trip last week where we caught 3 kings, and BIG Spanish and one mahi, all within 10 miles. Now here’s my report:

INSHORE: Red rum and large flounder are biting, mostly live bait and mostly in the inlets. Carolina rigs with just enough weight to hold bottom will do the trick. Best tide “mostly” has been falling, but don’t shy away from the rising. NEAR SHORE: Spanish mackerel have been offering lots of excitement not to mention good food. There have been some nice blues mixed in with the Spanish. Nice flounder are biting at the near shore artificial reefs. and King mackerel are venturing in closer in the bait balls as well.
