FISHING REPORT FOR APALACHEE BAY – APRIL 22, 2015

Stormy conditions made fishing a challenge last week but between showers some quality fish were caught, says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee.  Gator trout topped the list, with suspending and top water plugs scoring the biggest trophies.  The sporadic spring is finally shaping up into more normal patterns now, with plenty of bait back on the flats, decent water clarity when it’s not blowing a gale and warm water temperatures.  In fact, the FSU Marine Lab had reported unusually high water temperatures for this time of year, but the rains and cooler nights have dropped back it back into the typical mid-70 range.  The sea grass is slowly growing, although it’s still lagging behind previous seasons.  An extended period of sunny days will help the growing cycle.

The redfish schools of winter have broken into smaller pods yet big fish continue to prowl the shallow flats and tidal creeks.  The size range goes from “rats” to over-slot fish and most are willing to take a soft-plastic jig like a Sureketch bounced through the holes or an Aqua Dream weedless spoon snaked along the oyster bars or spartina grass.

Spanish mackerel are here in force for those trolling shiny spoons or straw rigs.  Cut-offs on the flats are the result of macks or bluefish zipping through in search of a meal.  Ladyfish are roaming in wolf packs and provide fun sport on light tackle.

There were a couple reports of cobia popping up in the nearshore depths but in typical cobia fashion they were fickle.  You never know when they’ll turn on, however, so it pays to have a medium-heavy combo always ready for action.

Weak tides this weekend are not going to move a lot of water, but the expected sunshine and calmer conditions will be welcome nonetheless.

Is your boat and/or motor ready for Spring? Don't be caught with a rig that needs service when you are ready to start enjoying our great Spring fishing and boating season.  Call Dennis, service manager, and get scheduled.  (925-6158, Extension #2)
