Warmer Days Will Bring More Fish
With the days becoming longer the waters will begin to warm and the bait fish should start moving in and that will bring the larger fish. Even though you couldn’t keep trout during the month of February the fishing was excellent on the days you could manage to get out. But this month it’s all about to change as you can keep trout and with all the down time there shouldn’t be any excuses for not having your equipment in proper working order.
Fishing around the creek mouths and inner oyster bars using the sinking and suspended MirrOlures produced some nice trout during the full tide periods out of the Econfina and Aucilla Rivers during February. I’ve had several excellent reports from folks over towards the Spring Warrior and Yates Creek areas on the trout and Reds. Several larger schools of trout have been seen down in that area also. As the waters continue to warm the trout will start to stack up on the shell bottom around the points where the bottom will warm up faster during the day. Anchoring off these points as far as possible and still being able to catch them will produce large trout and plenty of them if you are there at the right time.
