Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West is taking a FRESH angle by sharing that the shad fishing in the Tail Race Canal has kicked into high gear! Catch numbers are usually very good but right now they are averaging from twenty to fifty-shad per day. In other words, fish a 2-inch chartreuse curly tail grub rigged with a 1/8-ounce jighead until you have so much fun you forget all about saltwater fishing! But seriously, the redfish are still schooling in large numbers on the shallow flats ready to inhale a properly placed Zman StreakZ. Sheepshead are still hanging around bridge pilings and heavy structure in 10 to 25-feet of water, with oysters being the bait of choice in February. For the latest  seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: While bottom fishing continues to consist the majority of the offshore reports, Scott says that several boats have made it out onto the trolling grounds to find some stud wahoo. Numerous fish in the 50 to 60-pound range have been reported, all coming from just offshore of the ledge. A few blackfin tuna are mixed in and even some small dolphin too, and with the cost of fuel still lower than normal its a great time to steam towards the bluewater. The bottom fishing includes great reports of triggerfish and b-liners coming from 70 to 90-feet of water. The top baits include squid and jigs, which are working on black sea bass as well in 50 to 65-feet of water.
