Capt. Eddie Woodall
December 19, 2013
Navarre - Saltwater Fishing Report

In January I look for the blue bird sky days with a light north wind. This is the time to head into the gulf and hit the near shore reefs and load up on Flounder. I'm looking for the reefs that have bait on them. You find the ones with bait, you'll find the fish. Remember, you can keep the Mangrove snapper; they are very good table fare and a great bonus to compliment a nice catch of Flounder.

Next and as always this time of the year are the Bull Red Fish; there will be plenty of them for us to cast to all the way through April and into May. During this time of the year the water is as clear as it gets. This is the fly fisherman's time of year for his best bet to sight fish for a trophy Bull Red Fish. Depending on the currents and winds we will anchor up and wait for the fish to come to us or when the winds are right we can drift and cover more ground. Spin casting small jigs and fly casting to the fish are a must. Clear water and big fish can be frustrating. We will also be casting to shallow water False Albacore. The sun warms the shallow water in the surf and these Albacore have learned that the bait is in just inches of water right on the beaches. Then, when conditions are good, we can anchor in close and cast to them or get out of the boat and walk the beach and cast to them.

A big thank you to all the readers of Woods' n Water magazine that contacted me in 2013, I'm looking forward to the 2014 season, and it's getting started with lots of phone calls for our readers already!

From Destin to Perdido Key Florida, this area has some of the best fishing along the Gulf Coast and its only a short drive from Orange Beach and Gulf Shores Alabama. While cruising from spot to spot in my 24 ft. Blazer Bay Boat you will be riding in comfort and style and with the 250 hp Yamaha four stroke, it won't take long to arrive safely at our next honey hole. Come along with Capt. Eddie he will work hard to provide a trip that will be full of memories that you won’t soon forget. God Bless
