Bright and early this morning we had the Backlash, High Hopes, and Instigator all head out to the deep water offshore. The High Hopes returned from offshore with a few Tuna, a Mahi, and some nice Spadefish. The Backlash returned from offshore with 2 Yellowfin and some Mahi in the mix of things. The Instigator returned to the docks with some nice Mahi.
The Rebel fished inshore this afternoon, and was able to find some Red Drum. The High Hopes stopped inshore on their way back from offshore and were also able to put their anglers on some citation sized Red Drum. The Top Notch returned with a nice catch of Spadefish as well as catching and releasing some Red Drum.
Fishing inside Rudee Inlet has produced a variety of fish over the past few weeks. Most anglers have been fishing for Flounder, as we have seen several keepers brought in recently. Most anglers looking to catch Flounder have been using the chartreuse Gulp on a light jig head, with some using squid or live minnows as well. Other Anglers have been having some luck with catching some Spot and Croaker inside the Inlet on live blood worms or squid. There has also been some Puppy Drum caught on cut finger mullet or the occasional gulp. Be sure to stop in our shop right on the inlet for all your Rudee Inlet fishing needs.
