The bite is straight up fire right now. Plenty of inshore options to go around. The Spring Drum migration is in full swing. Big fish upward of 70 pounds with bigger ones mixed in. The Sheepshead bites been nuttier than fruit cake the last week or so. Some days we've limited out in less than an hour. One day we had our 16 fish in about 30 minutes. You wont find the bite that good just anywhere, however, you can get on the fish with minimal effort in the Inlet right now. In the coming weeks it'll only get better.

The Drum wont be here long so get out there before they're Rhode Island bound. You have a few weeks tops before they're gone.
Deep drops around the North and South Tips and you'll find them. Or alternately, just look for the fiberglass armada. Blue Crab on the bottom. Doesn't get any easier. Leave the light rigs at home. 5000 series spinning or 15 size conventional at the minimum. Grouper or King Fish tackle essentially.

I'm catching all my Sheepshead on Carolina rigs and Fiddler Crabs. Tried and true is all you need. You can also toss jigs if you want. there's no one way. Catch em up.

On a side note, there are Menhaden pods on the beach between the poles and PV. They are scattered and the groups are thin but, they're out there. Also seeing a lot of big Leather Backs on the beach. Also, big schools of Cow Nose Rays. Fish here long enough and you know what's not far behind these appearances.

Good luck....
