Our high surf has not helped the Pompano fishing this last week as they love good clear water for the bite to be good. But Trout and Redfish has held up very well in St Joe Bay and up in the Canal. I've had several reports of Redfish bite just being on fire under the Highland View bridge, bait of choice has been live shrimp, but several anglers are saying that ZMan paddle tail soft baits with a ZMan big eye jig is working very well. The jetty at the old marina has been a hot spot for sure catching Trout with live shrimp. Spanish Mackerel continues to be pretty hot. I keep getting questions about King Mackerel but have not really heard anything local. I have heard some reports over toward Panama City, so if they are there won't be long now. One more update Fish Gum is just around the corner so stay tuned for its arrival.

Until next week. Happy Fishing !
