What's hot: I have always been a firm believer in fish cycles. Each year, there seems to be one species that stands out above the others. For 2011, it appears the collective coastal species of sharks (lemon, bull, blacktip or spinners, nurse and sand) are taking the bait. The edges of the deeper grass flats located just inside passes and any sandbar adjacent to a pass are prime locations to find these sharks. Freshly caught mullet, menhaden and ladyfish get the nod as the best choice for dead or cutbait fishing.
Tips: The blacktip or spinner sharks have
been providing excellent sport in the shallows. They pull hard, make long runs,
perform spectacular leaps above the surface and provide all of the action one
can hope for when fishing
