Fishing Report from the News Herald - 2/29/12

Freshwater: Last week was a bad week on the Forgotten Coast. Strong winds and rain kept most anglers off the water. There are great fishing conditions this week. There have been good reports from Lake Wimico of bass and catfish with the rising water.

Inshore/piers: Redfish are being caught in the I.C.W. canal on live shrimp and D.O.A. lures, but not much to talk about on trout this week. Whiting are still biting pretty good in the surf and at Cape San Blas and at Indian Pass. The sea wall at the St. Joe marina has had mixed reports of redfish, Spanish mackerel, and a few big bull reds. In St. Andrew Bay bull reds were found in the pass and deeper channels along with trout and flounder in canals and creeks. Redfish were present at Panama City Beach piers and in the surf as well as bonito, sheepshead, some pompano and whiting and Spanish.

Offshore: There were reports last week of good trips for AJs and keeper jacks off Panama City Beach from as close as 4 miles out. Beeliners and triggerfish were found on live bottom and around large structure. Black sea bass made some trips worthwhile.
