Summer heat and afternoon thunderstorms continue to drive inshore fishing, as the best action is being had in the early morning. Fishing a rising tide, or even just a moving one, in the time around dawn and before 10 a.m. is giving anglers their best chances right now.
The two most dependable species inside continue to be red drum and flounder. Flounder fishing is best on days when the wind is slower than 10 mph and before the afternoon storms hit.
Fishermen drifting live baits like mud minnows through the inlets and cuts are having the most success.
