Inshore fishing has been hit or miss the last couple of weeks, but with a hint of fall in the air and the upcoming full moon tides, the prospects for this weekend look much better, says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee.  With early morning lows and three feet of water flowing in until mid-afternoon, there should be some feeding going on.  

While the trout haven’t been as plentiful, redfish have been taking up the slack.  The majority are being fooled on top water plugs early in the morning.  Rapala Skitterwalks, Heddon Super Spooks and the new Mann’s Ghost are padding the score, with silver patterns getting the most attention.  Gold Aqua Dream weedless spoons, the proven stand-by, are also producing along with olive baitfish fly patterns.  The reds have been scattered from the creeks to the outside flats and oyster bars and points in between.  The action will only get better as the water and the weather finally starts to cool off.

There’s certainly no shortage of other options.  Flounder are lying in wait in creek mouths and depressions, where they’ll gladly pounce on a slowly twitched DOA 1/4-ounce shrimp.  Mud minnows and finger mullet will entice ‘em too.  Packs of Jack Crevalle are roaming the flats harassing bait pods with the occasional Spanish mackerel tagging along.  

With just a few weeks left in scallop season, the bi-valve fleet is still happily finding limits in short order.  The crowds have thinned with school in session and the scallops are bigger now for a better yield.  So get out there and enjoy the last heat-furnace blast of summer while you can!
