 Port St. Joe Fishing Report 5-15-2024

OFFSHORE:  Fishing this week has been good in between storms. Wrecks and reefs have been very productive for Vermillion and Mangrove Snapper. Amber Jacks have been good on wrecks as well. Trolling cigar minnows over bottom structure is a good way to land yourself a King Mackerel. Keep in mind Red Snapper season opens June 1. BlueWater Outriggers has everything you need, from the bait to the cooler and everything in between.

INSHORE : Redfish, Trout, and Flounder continue to lead the pack this week. Live shrimp under a popping cork works well for Redfish and Trout. Flounder jigs with bull minnows are the way to go when stalking flatfish. The best spot this week seems to be the Highland View Bridge. Tarpon continue to show up with several pushing the 150 mark. Stop in and see us tor any updates or for a good fish story. If you're out on the bay, be mindful of the Manatees.

FRESHWATER: The Bream and Shell Cracker bite had been good before the rains, however, fish can still be caught in the sloughs using worms and crickets. Ponds and lakes have been good as well, for bass Try throwing top water plugs such as spooks and chug bugs and the old standby, jitterbugs during low light. Congratulations to Chris ,CJ ,and John for winning the Huckleberry Adventure Tournament out of Douglas Landing this past weekend.

Until next week tight lines and don't forget those lifejackets.
