Speckled Trout under the dock light in Navarre Beach Florida
Nice 22 inch Speckled Trout under the dock lights in Navarre Beach Florida

Nearshore the bite has been many different species.  Red Snappers, Lane Snappers, Trigger, Amberjacks, False Albacore, and Spanish Mackerels. 

    Inshore the Speckled Trout and Redfish are still biting really well at sunset and under the docks. Summertime is here call to book your fishing adventure.


    Near Shore the Red Snapper is opening up in State Waters which is up to 9 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico this weekend May 7.  It will continue to be open only on the weekends until Memorial Day, then it will be open for the whole week until July 9 at midnight it will be closing. 


     In the Fall it will open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays Starting in September and October with Labor Day being included.  Should be a great time to go limit out and then try for some other species, such as King Mackerels, Spanish Mackerels, Bonita, Mingo Snappers, and Amberjacks. 

     Inshore the Sunset bite has been fantastic for Speckled Trout and Redfish on the grass flats, even after the sun goes down the dock lights have been producing some really nice fish to take home and have a great meal.  Live Shrimp, Berkley Gulp New Penny and Root Beer 3 inch Shrimps with a popping cork has been a great way to get in on the action.  Mirrordines that look natural are also very effective around the docks and grass flats.



Mid April has started out with a great bite of many different species.  In the mornings with the Spanish Mackerels, Mangrove Snappers and Red Snappers in the bay have been biting on live shrimp on a Carolina rig or a fly line with a small 1/4 oz split shot sinker.

  The sunset bite is all about the Redfish and Speckled Trout on the grass flats with popping corks rigged with a live shrimp, small pinfish or finger

mullets.  Mirrorolures are also very effective right now.
