Captain's Corner

Captains corner: Trout, redfish activity on the rise

What's hot: Inshore, trout from 15 to 25 inches are eating at the beginning of incoming tides. The bigger fish are chasing large sardines and even threadfin herring. Small to medium pinfish are getting hit also. Redfish are schooling along mangrove shorelines during high tides. Fish the space between mangrove limbs with cut baits or live shrimp. On falling tides, focus on mullet schools moving out with the tide. Redfish have been mixing in to hide from dolphin and sharks feeding on the flats.

Brian Caudill fishes from Clearwater to Tarpon Springs. He can be reached at (727) 365-7560 and through his website at
