    The fishing season is running late this year. We are seeing continued catches of sea mullet, pompano and flounder in the surf. Redfish make up the bulk of the inshore action and speckled trout are just starting up.

    The piers have had a disappointing spot season but continue to see flounder in the shallows and black drum are active around structures at the bridges and docks in the dark.
