The warming water temps have really started to get the fish in a feeding frenzy.  The nearshore reef bite is great right now with mackerel, sheepshead, trout, flounder,  snapper, and even pompano.  Shrimp on a jig head will work just fine.  Anchor up on some structure and put out some baits.  It won’t take long to get a bite going.  The bite right off the beach is pretty god right now with keeper trout, and tons of ladyfish.  Shrimp on a jig head or under a popping cork will do the trick.  The trout bite over the grass flats is decent right now with the old shrimp popping cork combination being the go-to method.  The redfish bite has been best during high tides around the mangrove shorelines.  Shrimp on a jig head thrown into the pockets will produce a good bite. The presence of  bait on the beach and around the channel markers has set off a quality snook bite around the floating docks.  Free-line these baits on circle hooks to ensure good catch and release action.
