Targeted Species

Speckled Trout

Typically, plentiful year round speckled trout provides anglers with lots of action.  Often fished for on the crystal clear grass flats with artificial lures.  They're great eating as well.

Redfish

Prized by anglers throughout the Southeast primarily for their fighting ability, redfish can be caught year round in our region.  Live or dead bait is the most productive, however seeing a redfish slam a topwater plug will get the adrenaline flowing!  Good table fare.

Snook

An awesome fighter that loves artificial lures.  Primarily caught on plugs or jigs  worked near heavy current and structure.  Not uncommon for them to jump and throw the hook. Keeping your rod tip low can prevent this.  Excellent eating.

Sheepshead

Primarily targeted in Winter and Spring when they school up offshore.  These "convicts" are known for their bait stealing abilities.  Very hard fighters on light tackle.  Also great table fare.

Mango Snapper

Don't let their size fool you these guys can be tricky to catch.  Primarily caught on shrimp.  Found from the river, all the way to our offshore rockpiles.  Excellent eating like all members of the snapper family.

Cobia

The cobia bite really fires up in late April when the water temps reach the upper 70's.  Majority of the time these are sight fished with live bait.  Once hooked up anglers are in for a fight!  One of the best eating fish out there.

Gag Grouper

Found close to rock piles and heavy structure.  Live bait seldom gets passed up by these guys.  But you must get them off the bottom quick!  Trolling large lipped plugs can be productive as well.  Best fishing is in the Fall and Winter.  As with all grouper they are tasty!

Flounder

Often Caught as bycatch while targeting trout or snook.   Found sitting right on the bottom waiting to ambush bait.  It's not uncommon to see them while scalloping!  Among the best tasting fish out there.

Black Drum

Not uncommon to find these guys tailing along the bank or oyster bars.  Eager to take live shrimp or chunk of crab, drum put up quite a fight.  Smaller ones are ok to eat but pass on the big guys.

Triple Tail

These prehistoric looking fish can be a challenge for anglers.  Normally found near the surface around floating grass or buoys they can be extremely spooky.  Anglers must make the perfect cast to these fish to get them to eat. Always "Let them eat!"  Excellent table fare. 

Shark

Sharks through the region can get rather large. Even with beefy tackle they can put any angler to the test. Spring through Fall it's not uncommon to see a 8-10' Bull, Tiger, or Hammerhead out there.  Catch and release only.

Spanish Mackeral

These toothy, fast moving, voracious feeders are known for their blistering runs.  Wire leader is often needed as they will cut you off quickly.  Often schooled up they are especially fun on light tackle.  Good eating if cooked fresh.
