After a morning spent fishing for kings and albacore (landed two big albies and a nice king) with my buddy Captain Scott of [url]www.shacklefordcharters.com[/url], we decided to head back in the marsh to get into some of the specks and puppy drum working the grasses.

We worked jigs (didn’t much feel like live-baiting today) along the grasses, oyster beds, rips, cuts, channels – etc. We only fished for a few hours but we managed our INSHORE SLAM on artificials. First fish was a nice 3lb flounder than inhaled a tsuanami swim bait and then 3 nice speckled trout – the biggest of which was scott’s 3lb, 21″ fish. I topped it off with a short 17.5″ puppy drum. We had a good number of hits and missed some great fish – some live shrimp and mullet would be the TICKET! As the tide started to fall hard, we called it a day and went back to port.
