Apalachicola Bay in the spring

Old Man Winter is slow to let go of us this year, but we are beginning to get some warm days with light winds. Now if we can get the flow of fresh water to stay below flood stage for a few weeks maybe we can get serious about fishing.


As you can see, we still have some white pelican hanging around the Dry Bar. They should be heading north any day now, but with the weather our northern neighbors have been having...well I might hang around a little longer too.

Trout fishing is beginning to pick up, but water temps and muddy conditions are making it a little tougher than normal. I'm finding some cleaner water toward the west end of the bay and the trout are cooperating.

They are feeding on mullet now, so we've been fishing larger profile baits like the MirrorLure Catch 5. DOA shrimp are also producing around the oyster bars, but the Catch 5 are producing larger fish.

If our weather holds for a couple more weeks things should be back to normal.
