Florida Fishing Report for Panama City & Destin

Capt. James Pic
April 29, 2003
Panama City - Saltwater Fishing Report

Panama City/N.W. Florida

Things have been a little slow to get started this year. We had a lot of cold mornings in April but things look like they are starting to change.

Cobia fishing is winding down along the beaches although we will catch them in the bay all summer long. I had a client miss about a 20 pouder in the

Bay fishing with a Tiny Torpedo in about four foot of water. Pompano will be good throughout the month of May and into the summer.

The grass has started to grow and although trout fishing has been a little slow, the redfish are busting out. We caught 23 this morning in a little more than an hour.

They are in hole and on the flats, ready to eat. The redfish population seems to be very healthy as we are seeing both large and small fish.

The blues and big spanish have also started showing up with makes for great action both on the fly and topwater. A few reports of flounder are coming

in although it is still a little early.

May looks like it's going to be a good month. Remember only keep what you need and gently release the rest for another day.


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.
