This past week was hot and I'm not just talking about the weather!
Offshore just got better as the start of Amberjack season was May 1st! Pompano seems to be cooling down from the past few weeks, and we had a record making catch for Vermillion on a fly rod! 
Reds and Trout are hanging around in the flats and some nice sized ones are being caught. Cobia are being spotted but none have been caught as of lately. 
The bait is out, the sun is out why aren't you? GET OUT THERE!

Inshore: 
Both Reds and Trout are being caught with live shrimp on a poppin corkPaddle tails with jig head and Mirro lures. Look for Trout in grassy flats or shallow water.

Offshore: 
Amberjack season started off with a bang but the sharks are taking advantage of a lot of the larger catches, many anglers are pulling up just heads. AJ's are 1 per person 33" fork length. Triggerfish are still being caught with vertical jigging also by dropping down Northern Mackerel or Cigar Minnows. Troll for kings with dustersstretch lures, and Cigar Minnows. 
Catch Vermillion with squid and if you're lucky, snag a once in a lifetime catch on a fly like Jay Murphy (pictured below) did near the marina in Panama city! 
The bait has been plentiful lately remember to always freeline, you never know what you're going to catch.

Nearshore:
Spanish are running troll with Christmas trees and Jigfish.
Pompano are still out there catch them on fish bites and frozen shrimp. 
Bluefish are running and can be caught on nearly anything.

Piers: Nice sized Spanish and Kings are being caught at the piers. Pompano has slowed down but a few are still being snagged. A couple of Cobia have been spotted but no hookups yet!

Surf: 
Sailcats, Pompano, Bluefish, and Redfish are being caught. The best chances of snagging a Red is late at night. Use a double pompano rig with Fishbites and frozen shrimp for all of these.
