Inshore Action Is Steady In Aripeka FL
The inshore action has been steady this week we have been catching some good size Black drum in the deeper holes along with Sheepshead the way we are catching these drum and sheepshead we are using small shrimp and a 2/0 circle hook with 15 lb sufix leader just free line the shrimp down into these holes and then keep a thight line it dosent take long till you get bit. The black drum are from 14-26 inches and the sheepshead are 10-16 inches not bad. The Redfish are in shallow water 1-2 feet or less on muddy bottom but they have been very spooky latley so keep at least casting distance away from the reds. I like to use large shrimp and a 2-3/0 circle hook tied with a loop knot. I have seen some Trout in the same areas as the reds but in the deeper grass flats 3-6 feet they are more abundant a popping cork and a live shrimp works great. Or a white Berkley gulp shrimp or jerk bait on a 1/8oz jig head will produce fish also. Spring is just around the corner now is the time to check your tackel box see what you might need and put new line on the reels. If you need any advice on how to work a lure or what the fish are bitting on stop into PRECISION TACKLE and talk to Dave he
will put you in the right direction.
