Port St. Joe Fishing Report

St Joe Fishing Report 04/06/2018

-St Joe Bay-
     Fishing has definitely picked back up! Some days better than others, but the bite is hot right now. Fishing by boat, target the flats, ledge's, channels and bouys. In the flats fish a top water plug, twitch baits, or artificial shrimp under a poppin' cork. In the deeper channels and around the bouys, fish a Carolina rig with a 2/0 circle hook. Live shrimp or small bait fish should produce a bite. Try trolling for Spanish around the tip of the cape and Windmark beach you might just limit out after a few passes. 
-Cape San Blas-
     Fishing the beaches has been spotty, few Pompano and Whiting here and there. Spring run should be close for Pompano. Shark fishing at night has been decent down at Indian Pass. A few guys have caught 5 or 6 just in the past few weeks. Bull sharks mainly, 6' + caught on a shark rig with sheepshead heads or rays. 
-Offshore- 
     Grouper and Red Snapper are being caught and released in good numbers. Vermilion and triggers are still filling the boxes. Cobia and Kings have yet to show, but should be around the corner! 

We've got a lot of new offshore baits, tons of new Columbia, AFTCO, Pelagic and Huk performance shirts and hats. Select Beach/Pier carts on Sale! 

** Remember, be the first person to bring a legal Cobia in and receive a $50 gift card from HHT. You must sign a photo wavier and have your picture taken here at the store to win! We will measure. **
