Target Areas and Techniques:

Once again, as the pattern has been recently, the story will be about the winds. The winds forecast for the week is for gusty conditions for the better part of the week. The tides have fluctuated quite a bit as well. The heavy winds have caused the water to be dirty. The fish are starting to show up over shell areas. Look for areas that have multiple structures such as grass, shell, and/or drop-offs. There is plenty of bait in the bay systems, so look for bait activity.

Don’t forget to register for the CCA tournament!

For Lure Anglers: In the dirty water, be sure to use a color that will stand out. A lure with a chartreuse tail will help the fish zero in on the lure. Down South Twisted Tea is a great lure for these conditions. Be sure to have various sizes of your lures to give yourself the best opportunity.

For Natural Bait Anglers: As always, shrimp catches everything, but you will have to weed through the small ones. The redfish are hitting cut menhaden and cut mullet. Black drum are hitting the dead shrimp.
