Port St. Joe Fishing Report

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. The Spanish mackerel are in 6-8 foot of water in the northern part of the bay and caught more often while trolling.

The spring pompano run is not in full swing yet, however the Crooked Island Beaches are producing nice catches of pompano. Whiting are on most beaches and FishBites is the bait of choice. Around the Hwy 98 bridge the shore fishermen are bringing in redfish and trout. Soft plastics and live bait are providing the most action.
