FISH ARE ABUNDANT!!
Well folks can you believe that we are already in a new year. Seems like yesterday summer started. But with the New Year there comes some excellent fishing. The trout have been tearing it up and should continue to do so for the next couple of months as well. Fishing the points and creek mouths has been producing some huge trout. Most are being caught on shrimp under corks in the mouth of the creeks. Some folks are trying to capitalize on both trout and reds opting to fish with live shrimp on bottom in the creeks. For those of you that like to plug fish the ole faithful sinking 750 MirrOlure and the suspended 27MR MirrOlures have been catching lots of large fish on the points and creek mouths.
Like I mentioned above the reds continue to be caught in the creeks using live shrimp on bottom and also on the points and bars fishing the shrimp shallow under Cajun Thunders. A few reds have been picked up using the plugs but not as well as with the live shrimp.
The mullet must be going to make a late run this year because as I write this article 12-8-12 they are few and far between out of the Econfina and Aucilla Rivers. A few folks have started catching a few that have row but these are the first I’ve heard about with row in them. Not sure what caused this to happen this year but there’s been speculation about all the fresh water during the summer to the BP spill? I think it’s the good Lord working his magic.
Best bets for the month of January will be to continue to work the creeks and creek mouths using the live shrimp for trout and reds. Fish the points and creek mouths using the sinking 750 MirrOlure and the 27 MR for the larger trout. And as always before you leave the hill make sure you carry warm clothing and watch the tides as they will leave you in a minute this time of year. And last but not least remember to drop me a line or a photo at www.bullredcharters.com and don’t forget to include the children in all those outdoor plans. BOAT SAFE!
