The weather and water are cooler and turkey day is almost here. Inshore out of Hernando beach is hot. Redfish are spread through the entire area. Fillmans bayou,Centipede bay, and Higgenbotham Creek have all produced on the points with a moving tide as long as the mullet are present. We have been finding them in groups of 2 - 3 in 1 - 3 feet of water. Cut mullet,bluefish, or a live pinfish placed near the shore line where the mullet migrate by on a good moving tide is one of my favorite techniques. Try using a GULP crab on a 1/8 - 1/4 ounce jighead. Cast it to the edge of the mullet schools as they come by and let it lay on the bottom which is refered to as "deadstickin". Mullet are key to the area you are fishing! If you don't see them on arrivel to your spot you can still fish the area but keep searching until you locate them.

Big trout have been a little diluted but we are cathing good numbers. I believe these first few fronts are to blame. Live shrimp freelined or placed under a popping cork in 1 -4 feet of water works good. If the wind lays down for you a trip to cutters rock is a must. All The surrounding area of Cutters is producing trout,mackerel,jacks,and those big breeded reds. The grouper have also started to migrate to the shallow water. The entire area is producing keeper grouper in 6 - 20 feet of water!!

Tight lines!! Capt. Keith Tomlinson
