Capt. John McDow

Port St. Joe - Saltwater Fishing Report

The past two weeks have moved us into more of a summer time pattern. The best bite has been early mornings. Fewer redfish have been caught but the trout bite has been great with a lot of big trout. The early morning bite has been good on topwaters and twitch baits, which is always fun. As things heat up the fish are moving a little bit deeper and are hitting paddle tails, doas, and gulp shrimp. The sharks are thick in the bay right now. I have started working with NOAA and NMFS by catching, tagging, recording data, and releasing sharks. I have 5 shark trips scheduled for the next two weeks and I will try to add some good pics from these charters. If you would like to try shark fishing it is a lot of fun and can be mixed in with any inshore trip. Right now most of the sharks are running from 40 - 150#. They put up a good fight. So, not only do you get a great fight, and a great photo, you can also know that you are helping with research to conserve these awesome fish. If you would like to book a shark trip, inshore trip, or kayak trip, I still have one day open this month, Sunday May 27th. Let's go fishing! 732-278-2672 or [email protected]
