Though is may be raining here inside Rudee Inlet, it does not mean the fish will not be biting. Though anglers may mind the rain the fish certainly do not. We are still getting reports of some nice Bluefish biting inside Rudee Inlet, though the Speckled Trout bite may have slowed down some, we have still weighed in a few citations in recent days. We weighed in a beautiful Bluefish in the other day, one that hit the scales at a whopping 16 pounds and 3 ounces, caught inside Rudee Inlet. Popular baits continue to be the Gulps on a light jig head, as well as top water artificial’s. If you are the kind of angler who prefers to go the cut bait route, you will be best off using cut Finger Mullet or Squid.
The inshore bite has remained slow, as the ocean is still warming up. Once the inshore waters along our coast warm up just a tad bit more, we are sure it will be another year of great inshore fishing out of Rudee Inlet. Currently we have heard reports of a lot of Clearnose Skates being caught off the bottom in close to the shore. There are some Bluefish that are starting to make their way out along our coastline. We are happy to hear that there are some small Rockfish being caught and released as well, though this is a very scattered bite, it is still great news! As we continue to have warmer weather, and the ocean temp continues to rise, great fishing can only be just around the corner. Inshore fishing out of Rudee Inlet during the summer months brings an array of species that Anglers can expect to come across including Bluefish, Cobia, Flounder, Red Drum, Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, as well as the occasional Black Drum and King Mackerel.
