PCB Fishing Report

01/01/2017


Offshore

On wrecks and reefs in sixty feet or less we are still experiencing a pretty good flounder run, trigger fish are a nuisance but persistence can pay off. The start of the new year opened AJ's and closed gag grouper in both state and federal waters. There are some other changes in relation to the regulations so familiarize yourself before going. Plenty of amberjack around, keeper size fish are in a hundred feet of water or more. Larger wrecks with a good relief are best. After you've had your fill of tug of war with the reef donkeys get over some natural bottom. Red grouper, bee liners, white snapper, black sea bass and a few lane snapper can be found. 

Surf

It can be very hit and miss, but over the last few days whiting, pompano, spanish mackerel (large ones), redfish, flounder, bluefish and sheep head have all been reported. 

Inshore

Late in the day on the incoming tide the grass flats have held a few trout and smaller reds. Try using a popping cork with live shrimp in at least six feet of water or long casts with soft plastics but work it fairly slow. Those searching around deeper docks, sea walls and bridges have found some reds, sheep head, mangrove snapper, and a few black drum. Some of the black drum were a hefty size, if you are targeting them try a chunk of cut bait on a stout rod with at least thirty pound leader and a good sized circle hook.
