Flounder bite is still good although the throw back ratio has jumped to 40% in the inside waters. However the Blackfish Banks reef doesn’t have that problem with anglers maxing their limit with every trip. Back to the inside waters- croaker have been caught EVERYWHERE!! We haven’t seen that little hardhead fish in these numbers for years. The bait is anything- you know croaker - squid, artificials, balony - anything. Now kingfish/whiting/roundheads which remain in the Inlet area are more picky. They def like bloodworms, or bloodworm scented squid, Fishbites artificial baits, or regular squid. These panfish along with a few Black Willie’s (can I still refer to those juvenile sea bass by their long known nickname?), puffers, oyster crackers and pompano will provide hours of entertainment for a family on the water AND many can be caught from the FREE fishing piers on the island. Queen Sound Channel - both sides of the bridge also great for croaker. The ‘triangle’ - Buoys 17, 19 & 21 has been the spot for last few days for flounder, drifting between the buoys. Laced into the catch are ribbonfish especially in front of Capt. Bob’s Marina..

The shark fishery still strong from smaller inshore Coastals that are anywhere from 2-5 foot depending how far off the Inlet you fish - further out, bigger sharks!! Also mixes the species up the deeper you go out. The Subway Cars aka Blackfish Banks producing not only flounder but triggers, sea bass and to increase the size of those sea bass head to the Un-Named Wreck n they are huge. Also awesome catches at the Marine Electric. Offshore fishing took off like a rocket with the Parking Lot being the area to put gaffer mahi in the cooler as well as Cobia, Bonita and Yellowfin. Ballyhoos are your baits for those YF tuna. Plan on switching up your baits cuz one minute you’re fighting a Cobia charging under your boat and the next a tuna is spotted toying with the bait but not taking it. Switching to a ‘hoo’ will not only get those tunas attention but it will make him take the bait.

Surf fishing pretty much same as the inshore waters with panfish, shark n rays.

Crabbing sizzling. Big ones too. Amidst all the sorrows of 2020 - water related activities has been phenomenal. Plus a def entertainment that has brought families closer together. Thank you, Jesus.
