Navarre - Saltwater Fishing Report
Spring has arrived FINNALY ---- still 38 degrees this morning with a high near 65 degrees forecasted. I'll take it!
Sheepshead are doing well down around the passes. Live bait - fiddler crabs, or Shrimp are your best bet. Use a Carolina rig with only as much weight as you need to get it to the bottom. Remember these fish don't have stripes on their side for no reason ---- they're THEIVES, bait thieves that is. The first thump you feel is them grabbing the bait and in just a few seconds you'll feel another thump, that's him spitting out the hook. Set the hook after the first thump.
Speckled trout are all messed up due to the cold weather, as soon as we get a 4 or 5 day warming trend (it looks like it's on the way) these fish will take off. I'll be spending more time fishing for those fish in the next few weeks.
Slot Reds slowed way down during this cold snap, although they're responding quickly. Big schools of red fish are all over the bay systems in our region now. Fish close to some kind of structure, grass, oysters, docks etc……
Pompano are showing up in good numbers, a little slow to eat but you can catch them if you're patience.
Cobia – are slowly making a presence, I've heard of 6 or so fish being caught in the last few days.
Get out there and get ya some, GOOD TIME!
