Everything For Your Outdoor Adventure!
As we get ready to head into May, fishing is great. We are almost getting to many reports to cover them all. We are going to hit the high points this week and we really appreciate everyone who gives us fishing updates in the store and by phone every week. Lets start at the Sea Wall at St Joe Marina. There has been several nice Trout and several Flounder taken along the sea wall and we understand live bait and artificial is working evenly well to get the job done. Trout continues to bite well up in the head of St. Joe Bay, we like Salt water Assassin to get the job done. New penny, pearl and cantaloupe all are working well right now. Pompano bite is still strong along all the beaches and fresh shrimp, fishbites in flea flavor and pink shrimp are winners. Again, thanks for all the updates and until next week, Happy Fishing !
Another fine week of fishing on the Forgotten Coast. Pompano bite continues to improve along all the beaches. Spanish Mackerel also continues to improve and we are seeing larger fish being taken. Water temps continue to rise and water clarity is awesome. We are hearing some goods reports of Trout out around Black's Island and the head of St Joe Bay. We had also gotten several reports of some nice large Black Drum being caught at the Highland View bridge. Make sure and visit us at BlueWater Outriggers for all your tackle and gear as well as live bait and artificial baits. Don't forget we also carry Live EEL for Cobia anglers. Until next week, Happy Fishing !
Pompano continue to show up on the Forgotten Coast and we have been getting some good reports. Most fish are being taken on Fishbites in the Pink Shrimp or Sand Flea Flavor. When you can locate them Sand Fleas are by far the best bait and a Sand Flea Rake is the best tool. Spanish continue to bite well in most locations along the bay and in the trough along the beaches. Gotcha Plugs, Clarkspoon products will produce nice fish. Whiting bite has been on the increase as well and if your fishing for Pompano then chances are your going to hook into some nice whiting. Just remember Pompano bait is Whiting bait. Don't forget to visit us at Bluewater Outriggers for all your fishing and outdoor needs. You'll get good advice from a staff that lives here and fishes here. Until next week Happy Fishing !
As we move into April on the Forgotten Coast we anticipate fishing to just get better and better. The proof is in the pudding as the reports of great angling continue to come in. Spanish bite is still awesome and is getting even better as more and more fish migrate into our waters. Mackerel trees are best bet for bait unless you are fishing the pier in Mexico Beach and then we'd recommend Gotcha Plugs. Whiting bite is still good and live sand flea is your best bet when you can find them along the beaches but flea flavored Fishbites will produce well. There are still plenty of nice Redfish being taken and reports vary widely on baits. We love our Pompano on the Forgotten Coast and they have started to show up, we've seen some nice pics of Pomp's from Mexico Beach and out on the Cape. Again Fishbites and Pompano jigs are winners for baits. We think in the short coming weeks the Pompano bite will be really hot.. Anglers don't forget the Bluewater Outriggers 10th Annual Tent Sale coming April 7th and 8th. The bargains will Amaze You !!! Until next week, Happy Fishing !
Last week proved to be another great week of fishing on the Unforgettable Coast. Whiting has really turned on the last week or so and Fresh Shrimp or Fishbites is the bait of choice. Sheepshead continues to bite well along the sea walls and the concrete markers in the bay. Live or Fresh Shrimp are working well. Keep in mind that very small hooks are your best bet with Sheep's as they have the ability to stripe your bait in a second. Spanish continues to bite well and we are getting reports of some nice fish being taken in St Joe Bay. Anglers don't forget coming April 7th and 8th BlueWater Outriggers will be having our 10th annual Tent Sale. There will be 1000's of items to choose from at incredible once a year prices. So join us for some great fun and fabulous deals. Until next week, Happy Fishing.
This last week proved to be a great week of fishing and the prized waters were under the Highland View Bridge. Very large Black Drum were being taken along with Trout, Redfish and some Sheepshead. We also had a few reports of Flounder being caught there. After speaking to several anglers that had success under the bridge the common answer was live shrimp and Vudu shrimp for baits. The natural brown or root beer color seemed the be the winners. There were some more reports of Spanish being caught along the sea wall at St. Joe Marina using Gotcha plugs and Clark Spoons. As we gear up for spring fishing and it looks like it's going to be some great days on the water be sure and visit Bluewater Outriggers for all your gear, "we have everything for your outdoor adventure". Until next week, Happy Fishing !
As we prepare to move into March the weather has already gotten spring warm and the fish are responding. Sheep Head continue to move in and there are some nice fish around the bay markers and Mexico Beach Pier, we had gotten reports also of them moving through the mouth of the canal at Highland View Bridge. Trout continue to move in that area also and we had several reports of Silver/Sand trout moving in and out of the canal as well. All the above have been taken on live baits and the two Trout species are being taken on soft baits as well. We just got a report yesterday that some folks were catching Spanish on the sea wall at St Joe Marina so the weather is really pushing fish in early this year. We are waiting (and fishing for) Pompano and we think they'll be showing early also. Come see us at BlueWater Outriggers for all your fishing needs and look for our up coming sales that'll save you some money. Until next week, Happy Fishing !
