Ahhh, can you feel it? As the first cool front has bestowed upon us some nice fall weather, the fishing should absolutely HEAT up inshore. All along the Gulf & Atlantic coasts, the speckled trout, redfish, and flounder should start to move back into the interior marshes by the droves. Targeting tidelines around points and drains should lead to some decent action. The key, like usual, is to find some moving water and bait. As we all know, if there’s bait, fish should be close in tow. Whether you’re a live bait angler or not, just “match the hatch” to help yourself become more successful. I like to throw a plethora of twitch baits like Unfair Lures Rip-N-Slash, Rapala Rippin-Raps, and even Mirrodines. I will move over to a soft plastic shrimp imitation like the Marker 54 soft plastics if I can see shrimp jumping or fish feeding on them. Add to this some structure (underwater oyster beads, old pilings, etc.) and you’re sure to find some fish. Be patient; if you’re in an area that you believe or know holds fish, work it over and over again and wait till that tide is moving though, your patience should be rewarded by a decent bite. Tight lines folks!
