November 2018 Madeira Beach Inshore Report
The fishing this time of year really starts to heat up as the water cools the bite gets better. The red tide is making its way down south of us and we are slowly seeing better and improving conditions of water clarity and the fishing. The sheephead are thick this time of year and will only get bigger and more aggresive as water cools. My favorite way to Target the sheepshead is with light tackle. I use 30lb Bullbuster flurocarbon or monofilament leader matched with a Jay hook. The bait I like to use are small Crabs such as fiddler crabs, oysters, and shrimp. The Tripletail are also thick around the Stone crab bouys off the beach where you can Target them with live shrimp pitched next to one if sighted.
Gag Grouper are making there way to shallower waters as the water continues to cool down. This is a great time to Target inshore Shallow water Gag Grouper or as I like to call them inshore tanks. Target these tanks around structure such as docks, bridges, and ledges where they will be lurking. I recommend using a heavy spinning outfit or a conventional outfit. I like to use either 60lb or 80lb Bullbuster Flurocarbon or Monofilament leader with a hook matching size of bait. The bait I like using are a freelined pinfish or grunt.
