What's happening guys?  Hope your Thanksgiving went good!!  Fishing has been really good here this week.  The flounder have finally made their way to the inshore wrecks, within 5 miles of the passes, and are stacked up thick.  You can catch them on artificial baits like Gulp, but the best baits are live bull minnows or small finger mullet.  Use a small #1-1/0 hook, 3oz lead, and a 12-14" 20lb leader.  Try to fish right around the wrecks or on top of them.  You can also anchor up or drift right outside the pass on the drop off around the C-Bouy.  Most fish are 12-14" but there's been some 16-18" fish as well. 

Another species to target is the big bull redfish.  They've been thick.  You can fish for them in a bunch of different ways.  One is trolling along the drop offs in the bay with stretch rapala style lures.  You can also troll along the beach in 15-25ft of water as well.  Most people are crusing the bay looking for birds diving though.  If you find the birds, you usually can find the redfish.  Try throwing large paddle tail plastic baits, jerk baits, or even top water.  The fish are hungry, so it's just a matter of finding them.  Go from flock to flock of birds and try this technique, eventually you'll find them.

Good luck guys, catch em' up!!
