Normally duing this time of the year anglers looking for specs would find them all schooled up and easy to catch. This is because the cold weather has them at the end of canals and rivers. However we have had a mild winter so far and few nights/days of very cold weather. The spec fishing has been some what off. But the redfish are still here both the bulls offshore and the slot size on the inside. They are ready victims to a flyrod. Offshore the bulls will bite almost anything placed in front of them. Sheepshead, the notorious bait stealers, are still around and they are very tasty fish. Try a small live shrimp with only one or two split shots on your line. Use a small hook like a 1/0

As Feburary comes online we should see schools of pompano moving in along the beach..So make your plans.
