What’s biting other than redfish?

Spring is here and the fishing is good.   Red fish bite year round but go to deep holes when the weather cools.

Trout and sheephead begin biting when the water begins warming.  Mackerel move with the water temperature and flounder will move off shore.

We went out yesterday and had a great day!  Pictures coming soon.  Glad we didn’t wait until today now that the rain has moved in.  Port St. Joe is currently under a River Flood warning to if you’re out and about keep your eyes open and stay in touch with the weather man (or app!)

Tropical Storm Karen is on the move!

Tropical Storm Karen is currently churning in the Gulf of Mexico and we are on storm watch until Wednesday, 10/9/13 as is stands now.  The current path will certainly affect our area with possible heavy rainfall.

Normally we would tell you to stay up to date with NOAA.gov but that website is currently closed for business due to the current government shutdown.  However, you can get information at Weather.gov.  I’m not sure of the difference since it is also a NOAA website.  A political tactic?  Possibly.

Be sure to keep and eye to the sky and the surf!


Time is running out, scallop season ends soon!

Don’t forget that scallop season ends on 9/24/2013 so there isn’t much time to get yours.  There is a slight chance of rain on Thursday and Friday increasing to 50% on Saturday so the season may end sooner than expected because of the weather.

Give us a call to see if you can schedule a scalloping trip before time runs out!

Scalloping is a near shore activity so 5 hours will run $350.

 

Great fishing day in St. Joe Bay!

It wasn’t the most beautiful day but today’s outing with some young men from Tennessee was a “catching” trip.  The catch of the day included speckled trout and bluefish.

Nice speckled trout!
Nice Bluefish!
Another speckled trout!
