Since hurricane Irma I have had the chance to fish the inshore waters around Florida in Jacksonville, Sanibel and Ft. Pierce. In all locations, even after a month, I am still finding dirty water. In this turbid water I have found the best fishing near where estuaries are near inlets or open water. What have you found that works?

I will be honest, dirty water or not.... I am catching more nice redfish than at any point in last 5 years. Charlotte Harbor/Matlacha has been great even if the visibility is only 1 foot or less.

That is a great day by any standard!

Today and Monday I fished the Weeki Wachee River and around Bayport. The water was clear and the fish hungry. It was fun catching jacks and trying to avoid a manatee that took a liking to my boat. Around Jax before the front last week fishing was excellent
