Forgotten Coast Fishing Report

The nearest shore reefs are really turning on with limits of bee-liners at the top of the list; triggerfish as well as some mangroves are also being caught, shrimp are the bait of choice, cut mullet, works well. 

We have had several good inshore reports from our local captains; Capt Phil of Phil’s charter service and his crew were able to wrangle some big reds to the boat this week. Capt Chris Lance of Gettin’ Reel Sportfishing had another first-rate week of sheepshead, trout and redfish. For all you shark fisherman, that bite is turning on with some bull sharks being caught along Indian Pass; butterflied bonita are a great bait to start with as well as cut mullet. 

The catfish are obliging freshwater fishermen on Lake Wimico using stink bait, as well as cut bait. Crappie are still caught as well. Shellcracker are starting to be caught on the Dead Lakes. Stop by and see our knowledgeable staff for advice or help picking out tackle; we have a vast assortment of offshore, inshore as well as freshwater. We also carry live bait and frozen. Until next week, tight lines and don’t forget to wear those lifejackets and keep those lanyards hooked up.
