Apalachee Bay Fishing Report/January 22, 2015

Although there were some positive reports from the St. Marks River over the holiday weekend, the most consistent action is still in the tidal creeks, says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee.  With the new moon tides and cooler temperatures, the best opportunities came on the crest of the high tides and the first couple hours of the falling.  The water was warmed by the morning sun and the current wasn't quite as strong so the fish didn't have to expend as much energy chasing down a meal.  Gold/glow DOA one-quarter ounce shrimp and CAL shad tails worked well, along with soft-plastic Sureketch jigs and jerk baits.  Capt. JR Walker reported white/red head Catch 2000 plugs were also producing in the creeks surrounding the Aucilla River.  The action wasn't furious but if you worked at it, limits were caught.  Mixed in with the spotted sea trout was a smattering of flounder, sheepshead and silver trout.  Chuck Shields also reported people catching fish in the St. Marks River in the “turn basin” as well as catching Mango Snapper near the City of Tallahassee power plant.

Redfish have been hard to find or finicky lately, due to the exceptional clarity. Anglers venturing out to the near shore reefs and rock piles have been loading up with keeper-sized black sea bass.  These scrappy fighters are none too picky about hitting any type of lure thrown in their direction. 

FYI – The fishing seminar to take place at the marina in February is now sold out.  For those of you who have signed up, Thank You; we look forward to a fun and informative seminar.
