Panama City Beach Weekly Fishing Reports



There were some slow days probably due to the recent full moon but the last few days the action has picked back up. Live bait has been fairly easy to find, cigar minnows, herring and hard tails galore. Trolling from wreck to wreck or along the beach has landed plenty of kings. If you were fortunate enough to get the opportunity to go deep, there have been really good reports on red grouper, bee liners, and huge AJ's. 


Better action here lately too. Fairly good reports on pompano at dawn and dusk. Throw in some lady fish, a few spanish, small schools of tarpon and the occasional redfish or flounder and you have the picture.  


From way up in the back waters of the bay there are reports of slot trout and reds working the grass beds in six to eight feet of water. LY's, finger mullet, and shrimp are working great. You will find some lady fish and spanish zipping through these areas too, so you may want to step up the leader size a little. Some sheep head, a few black drum and good numbers of big reds can be found around the bigger bridges. Toss in a few flounder getting hooked around some of the seawalls and docks and you can make your own inshore slam.
