Well folks with the weather heating up the trout fishing out of the Econfina and Aucilla Rivers continue to be slow. The trout fishing has been a hit and miss game right now as it’s been for the last several weeks. You need to fish the early morning hours to hit the bite and be able to beat all the midday boat traffic. Once you catch a couple of fish you really need to concentrate on working that area real good, making the same drifts time after time. One thing to look for is grass on bottom. If you can find some good grass most of the time you will be able to catch a trout or two in those areas. Since the water temperatures have began to heat up now is a good time to start tight lining on bottom since the water is a little cooler the deeper you get. Time to start moving out to the 8 to 10 feet of water!!

The red fishing has been pretty good for the last several weeks. A lot of just within the slot fish being caught mostly off the grass line. Fishing the grass lines right at daylight if the tide permits does the best, try fishing the top water plugs and gold spoons, or rattling red fins seem to work the best for the larger reds. Fishing the creek mouths using the live shrimp seem to produce mostly the just under slot reds. Also pitching to the grass line using the Berkley gulps 5” new penny jerk shad will also catch these fish.

The mullet seem to be kind of scattered right now with no large schools of fish being spotted yet. I’ve seen mullet almost everywhere I’ve been but just not any large bunches. Hopefully that will change in the coming months, last year during July and August we started seeing some large schools of mullet. So hopefully the same will be in store for us this year! So make sure you keep that cast net in the boat when you leave the ramp.

Remember scallop season will be coming in the last week of June so please make sure to pay close attention to the dive flags and don’t get to close!!! Sorry to say I haven’t seen any scallops out of the Econfina or Aucilla Rivers this year. Remember to shoot me a photo or drop me a line at www.bullredcharters.com and let me know how you did on your last day out on the water or to book a charter. TIGHT LINES and GOOD FISHING!!!!
