Redfish in Shallow and Water is Very Clear

Capt. Rob Womble
January 14, 2013
Panama City - Saltwater Fishing Report

Well it's been awhile since my last report. Sorry but I have been traveling, and with the holidays… Well, I wasn't doing a lot of fishing until recently.

The redfish bite is still pretty good right now. The lower winter tides have the reds out in the open. I have been finding them in very shallow water around the creeks and bayous. With the water being as clear and calm as it has been lately, they are easier to spot, but that makes you easy to spot as well. Approach the reds slowly and use long cast. I have been using the 1/8 oz. gold spoons - but whatever bait or lure you use - make sure it isn't too large. A loud splash when the lure hits the water will spook the reds right now.

The trout are scattered right now. I have found some decent size trout in the creeks. Jigs have been working the best for me as well as suspending hard baits.

As always good luck on the water and in the woods.
