Panama City Beach Fishing Report

  • 04/12/2017

    Offshore King mackerel have showed up, flat lining and trolling live or fresh dead baits has worked the best. A few cobia have been picked off the local wrecks and everyone and their brother is running the beach getting eye strain scanning the horizon looking for them. Better reports from the west still but some fish are getting caught locally.  Surf Real good bite on pompano and spanish. Also there were some whiting reported but they have been small, and jack crevalle are cruising the bar hitting just about anything that moves.  Inshore The trout and redfish bite was a little slow during this last full moon, assuming you were fishing during the day. Probably did some feeding at night and were harder to get a strike out of during the day. The two tides per day didn't help either. Sheep head have slowed a bit too, still some around but not gangbusters like it was. Plenty of spanish in the bay, trolling for them in about fifteen feet of water just off the shipping channels has worked...

Navarre Fishing Report

  • 04/14/2017

    We were blessed with another great week this last week and it's looking like more of the same for the coming week.  Inshore was especially productive for a lot of folks fishing the sound and East Bay. Reds were reported by practically everyone fishing in the flats in the sound with the hottest action coming first thing in the morning! Live shrimp pitched around the deeper docks with just a split shot has been the most productive presentation, but folks are also doing pretty good fishing them under a popping cork. The popping cork presentation is also producing good numbers of specks between docks and along drop offs. Black drum, sheepshead, and the occasional flounder are also being caught in those same areas. Spanish are roaming Pensacola Bay from 3-Mile to the pass. Folks fishing the sound around Navarre are also reporting a few sightings East of the Navarre Bridge.  The Navarre Pier is all about the kings these days although folks are still catching an occasional cobia the kings are...

Port St. Joe Fishing Report

  • 03/13/2017

    Port St Joe Weekly Fishing Report – Mar 13, 2017 Offshore & Near Shore Fishing, good and getting even better. Off shore bottom fishing has been one of the highlights the past week. Snapper, grouper, triggerfish, black sea bass, and sheephead are active, just be aware of what you can keep. The sheephead are around the inshore structures and they are bunched together so once found you can catch a bunch, No cobia catches have been reported yet, but that will probably change this week if Mother Nature allows boating weather. Nice size Spanish mackerel are being targeted more and they are filling the ice box. Amberjack are still around, but not the only show in town now that other species are providing so much of the fishing action.    St Joe Bay Large speckled trout, slot size redfish, flounder, and Spanish mackerel are in the bay. The spring bite is in full swing. Lures and live bait work equally well. Fish shallows for the trout and reds, and the pockets of deeper water for the flounder....
