Fish Report (10-31-12)

Freshwater:

As the weather cools freshwater fish will hide out in deeper holes and channels in area rivers and lakes.
Crappie are starting to show up in local spots such as Depot Creek and Howard Creek.

Inshore/Piers:

The beach fishing is picking up as the water is clearing up. These high winds we have been experiencing lately aren’t helping the situation but there is a marked difference this week in water clarity than the last two months. The battle between the Panama City Beach piers will come to an end on Nov. 4, so if you want to get in on the prizes you better hurry. Flounder, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel are just a few of the fish that can be entered for prizes.

Redfish are being caught from the rocks at the jetties in St. Andrew Pass. It is not necessary to own a boat to catch redfish while fishing from the rocks. There are several methods to catch these reds, live bait being the best. St. Joe Bay is on fire if you like to fish for speckled trout. This bay runs north and south and is three miles wide. With these high winds we are having it would be wise to try and put in as close to the spot you intend to fish as possible. You don’t want to try and cross this bay on one of these high windy days we are having. There are good reports from places such as the “T” and White City bridge of redfish, black drum and trout
