Cobia are all over the place from shallow flats to nearsho...

Old man winter is here in Florida but the fishing is great. Our fish we target at this time is Speckled sea trout, Red fish, Sheepshead. Sea trout are holding in very shallow water 1-2 feet deep on hard lime stone bottom, fish these guys on a incoming and first part of the outgoing tide. We are doing great with soft plastic zoom baits in white, Arkansas shad, Albino, and watermelon red. Rig these baits weedless with a 4/0-5/0 skip gap worm hook tied with a loop knot for more life like action,...
