Are you reday for the weekend, if the catches this week are any indication the fish are ready for you to give it a try as they have been biting well.

Pier---Some nice dolphin and a few kings at the panama city and navarre piers. the okaloosa pier is mostly, ladyfish, hardtails, a few kings and a few spanish.

...

Nearshore Trolling--Good catches of kings on live baits and plugs tolling over natural bottom, coral and rocks. Some chicken dolphin action, a few blackfin tuna and still an occasional cobia!

Offshore Trolling---Wahoo and dolphin action s good, Tuna have been quite good and the daytime swordfishing as been real good with some night time action.

Bottom Fishing--Mingo snapper, red grouper and a steady catch of black snapper dominate most days, Red snapper are of course open and biting on the weekends, fish wrecks, hard bottom and coral with live cigar minnows for the best action!

Deepwater Bottom Fishing---Looks like the action here is again starting to happen. Some nice catches of tyle fish this week, a few barrel grouper and some snowy grouper, fish hard bottom or the pipeline 400ft to 1200ft

Bay Fishing---Trout and reds are good on live shrimp and menhaden, the new Live Target Menhaden, Pinfish and Mullet are doing real well over the flats!!
