Inshore trips are targeted at flounder, drum, trout, Spanish mackerel, bonito and more. We use both live bait and artificials, depending on what is working best at the time. Fishing is done with light tackle spinning, baitcasting, or flyfishing gear. All tackle is custom made and of the finest quality.
