Smokin' that spanish in Panama City Florida

Capt. James Pic
April 6, 2010
Panama City - Saltwater Fishing Report

This could be the best spanish run in four or five years. They are thick and everywhere.
I'm already seeing them as far up in the bay as the Hathaway Bridge. Most of the newer guides haven't been around long enough to remember the last time they have been that far this early. This is the first year we have had clean water during the start of the run with no freshwater run-off from the rain pushing them by the area.
One of my buddies is reporting Deepwater Point at the state park slow but the rest of the bay is full of fish.
We left early in the fog this morning finding our first school of fish just south of the St. Andrews Marina. At 0700 they were already beating the water.
Casting bubble rigs and spoons has been productive. I see that bigger boats, along with some smaller, trolling spoons and tree's catching fish. There is no shortage and the action is steady.

Panama City Fishing Forecast:

Spanihs are on fire.
Sheeps are still biting in the pass.
Cobia are showing up in better numbers.
Trout and redfish bite on the flats should be picking up.

Target Species:

Everything is here with new fish arriving daily.

More Fishing Reports:


Sight casting fly and spinning for reds, trout, bonita, spanish, jacks and many other species. Live bait trips available as well as hot topwater action in the bay around Panama City, Florida. Depending on the time of the year I can normally put you on legal grouper in the bay, monster speckled trout, lot's of fly fishing action and just about everything else that swims and good tablefare.
