As we continue to progress through spring toward summer, both the water and the fishing are heating up, as the two usually go hand in hand this time of year. We have been seeing some action from most all of the target inshore species lately. The redfish and black drum continue to produce a good piece of our total catch, as they are continuing to move out of the backwater creeks and stage up on more accessible spots along the ICW. The speckled trout have also made a good showing on a few spots around the area, which is hopefully a sign of a good trout year to come. Finally, the first flounder of the year are beginning to be caught as well. While many are undersized, which is normal for this time of year, there have been some nice keepers caught throughout the area. Things are only going to get better in the coming weeks, so now is the time to plan your late spring/summer fishing trip!
