The best fishing we are seeing in the last couple weeks has been Flounder fishing on sandy bottom from Mexico Beach around the canal all the way to the head of St Joe Bay. Several baits are taking fish and anglers are using Bull Minnows to soft plastic Grubs like Gotcha, D.O.A and ZMan. Our other popular species like Trout and Redfish have been a little harder to come by with the abundance of boaters on the bay looking for Scallops. If you are trying to target fish rather than Scallops remember right now that early (sunup) is going to be your best bet before the water is full of the Scallopers. Look for good areas away from other boaters, swimmers and waders to try and nail down some fish. I haven't heard anyone lately talk about taking Flounder up in the Intracoastal at Highland View bridge but usually there are some Flounder that like to hang out on the sandy banks. We have taken many fish up in these areas and they are not spooked by as much boat traffic. Until next week, Happy Fishing and Scalloping !
