Focus on inshore fishing

Focus on inshore fishingNews StaffThu, 11/19/2020 - 06:43 am Joe and Stefani Pulido with a nice bag of Black Drum from this week.photo submitted By Chris Shultz, Fishing Columnist Chrisfishjax.org Judging by the sold out bait shops, Memorial Day number of boats at the ramp, and gunwale-to-gunwale action along the jetties, it sure felt everyone got out and enjoyed the fishing weather last weekend.We slid into Mayport with the crowd and fished the early high tide before cruising down the ICW for lunch. You couldnt have asked for a better day, chamber of commerce weather and cooperative fish.The action was fast at the jetties as we pulled up, Captain Kirk Waltz was handing a bent rod to a client while Captain Kris Kell was wrangling a sheepshead into his net on the other side. Seven dozen shrimp disappeared fast and became a mixed catch of redfish, black drum and mangrove snapper by noon. Despite seeing sheepshead caught all around, I think not having fiddlers did us in on the convicts.With the water temp hovering around 74-75 in the inlet I didnt plan on targeting drum, but after the second one came up we started fishing a little deeper and a little slower, and putting a handful in the boat from 15 to 23, perfect table fare size. Reports from the evening tides at the inlet have been just good if not a little better for Sheepshead.Offshore it was bumpy, but we had a brief window last weekend for the people willing to charge into the mixed seas. Captain Bo Hall ran the Princessout to the 90-100ft wrecks and got on a mixed bag on vermillion snapper, triggerfish and, of course, plenty of red snapper to release. Captain Brandon Ingalls ventured out farther toward the break and found increasingly rougher conditions with current running against the wind making for tough bait presentation. With water temps still in the upper 70s toward 80F offshore, the winter fishery still isnt right. Look for the drop after another couple cold fronts to really push the fish on the temperature breaks.This coming week looks like another pretty long stretch of fishing inshore with winds blowing 10-20mph through the weekend. The sheepshead and trout would be my focus, but if you feel like mixing it up and looking for some early black drum its certainly an option as well.For any questions, to book a charter trip, or to send in a report and pictures of your catch and be featured in a future report, send an email to Chrisfishjax.org.
