Trout,Reds,Flounder,Kings

Port St. Joe - Saltwater Fishing Report

The past week the fishing has been good. The weather has cooperated and let us get in some fishing, which I needed after 10 days out of town. The trout bite has been best early and late in the bay. The south end of the bay seems to be empty right now with all of the trout being caught much further North around Town Beach Flats. Town beach is also the place to go for flounder, which are plentiful and hitting everything, and you may even find a redfish or two around the channel at 20th st. if you fish there during a low outgoing tide. We managed to get a couple of good slams this week but the redfish were over the slot.
We had a night shark trip from the beach this past Saturday and an offshore kayak trip on Sunday. Saturday Night we caught about half a dozen small sharks. Nothing huge but we had a good time. Summer also caught a nice 32.5" redfish on a croaker that night. On Sunday we had an awesome kayak trip. We paddled out from Barrier Dunes on Cape San Blas. Immediately we were surrounded by hundreds of dolphins as we paddled out. After reaching our fishing spot it only took a few minutes of fishing before we hooked up with a big black tip, but we lost him at the boat. We caught a few baitfish and tossed them out for kings. While we were waiting on the Kings we were jigging with 5" Slammers and managed to hook up with something huge but lost it before we could get a good look at him. Only a few minutes later we decided to troll a live bait with a king buster rig behind the yak and it produced a strike quickly. Let me tell you, when this king hit I thought we had found a near shore wahoo the way the reel was screaming and Will was grinning from ear to ear when he grabbed the rod. 10 minutes later the 44.5"TL King circled his way to the surface and let us put the gaff in him. It was Will's biggest fish ever and he landed it from the kayak on his first kayak trip outside of the bay. So, in the past week I managed to watch 4 kids catch the biggest fish of their life! I would say that is a good week of fishing! Here are a few pics from the past week.
Congrats to Will,Summer, Chase, and Daniel for catching their new personal best this week!
