Trout, Redfish and Sheephead bite has been good. Some of the hot spots have been the old ship docks by the Port St. Joe Marina and under the Highland View Bridge. Sheephead also being caught around pilings with fiddler crabs the top choice for bait. Trout and Redfish also being caught in deeper holes using live shrimp, pinfish, or small croakers. Fishbites are an excellent choice for artificial bait.
This bull Redfish was caught with Capt. Chris Lantz at Gettin Reel Sportfishing
Triggerfish as well as Beeliners have been good around structure. Start 60' to 80' and go out from there. Cut bait as well as Fishbites work well. Amber Jacks have been active over wrecks in 100' or more using jigs or live bait.
Howard Creek reports were good before all the rain. Bluegill and Shellcracker were biting on Earth Worms and Crickets. Largemouth Bass have been hitting artificial worms and lizards. The Green Pumpkin color are doing the job. Catfish bite is active and C.J. Young caught a 28 lb. flathead on a live bluegill.
