FISHING REMAINS SLOW!!!
Well folks it sounds like the same old song, the rains just won’t stop and give the waters time enough to clean up. With all the fresh water we’ve gotten in the past couple of months the waters out of the Econfina and Aucilla Rivers remain pretty darned stained and with that the fishing is slow. Trout are being caught to the East back towards Spring Warrior and Yates Creek and back to the West of the Aucilla towards St. Marks. There have been some trout being caught in the Aucilla Rivers and back up in the creeks in some of the deeper holes. But we really need a little break from all this rain. The Trout that have been being caught are being caught on lures like the sinking and suspended MirrOlures and Catch 2000’s.
The Red fishing has been a little on the slow side also unless your one of the lucky ones to be in the right creek at the right time. These fish would also like for the waters to clean up since the dirtier waters effect the bait that these fish are depending on for survival through the winter months. There again you can travel back to the East and or West and get into a few more Reds willing to bite. Within the coming months hopefully we will start having warmer and drier weather and with that the waters will continue to warm and the Red fishing should start to pick-up along with the Trout fishing.
The Aucilla has remained stocked with mullet all winter and folks have been taking advantage of it, some using snatch hooks to get their limits and other using cast nets to get them. Either way they have been plentiful. These fish too will be wanting to hit the flats as the waters warm in the coming months.
Best bets for the month of March would be to travel in and out of the creeks throwing sinking plugs in the deeper holes for Trout. Then use the live shrimp in these deeper holes for the Reds. As the waters warm start hitting the creek mouths, grass lines, and points with those plugs as these fish start to move back onto the flats. And as always if you want to book a charter you can contact me on my web at www.bullredchaters.com. Remember to include the children in all your outdoor activities.
