FISHING REPORT FOR APALACHEE BAY

AS OF FEBURARY 10th.

“We’re in the middle of the toughest month on the calendar. Despite challenging conditions, anglers who put in the time are finding some cooperative fish,” says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee.  Cold weather and strong winds last weekend didn’t stop contestants from scoring in first “North Florida Gulf Fishing Club” event of the year, a combo trout/redfish formula. The winning pair tipped the scales at 9.6 pounds and was boated by Gary and Patty Zellner. Gale force winds kept most off the water this week, although trolling the St. Marks River with Rat-L-Traps reportedly produced some big trout. The latest cold front and clear nights has pushed the water temperatures into the low 50s.

 The outlook for Valentine’s weekend looks a little more promising. Breezy northerly winds will slow incoming water, however. With mid-day low tides the exposed mud flats, oyster bars and shallow rocks will absorb solar radiation and be a degree or two warmer after they flood again. That should attract trout, redfish and sheepshead all looking for extra warmth and a meal.

 The current conditions call for slow-sinking suspending plugs like the Unfair Rip-n-Slash, Paul Brown Fat Boys and Rapala Twitchin’ Raps. Gold variations have been working best. Let the lures slowly descend and barely move them to entice strikes. Soft-plastic options like 3/8-ounce Sureketch jigs or 1/2-ounce DOA shrimp also hopped slowly along the bottom will be productive too. Adding a squirt of Pro-Cure Bait Scent can prove to be the winning edge.  Shields Marina stocks many of these lures.

If you prefer the real thing, a frisky live shrimp pinned on a jig head or live mud minnows and fiddler crabs are top options for the winter season. Shrimp are available at the local marinas and tackle shops, while mud minnows can be cast-netted and fiddlers gathered by hand along the shorelines.

Now is prime time to get your tackle and boat ready for the upcoming spring. Once the weather does warm up you’ll want to be on the water every chance you get instead of waiting for service work to be finished.

SPRING SERVICE SPECIAL:  Now through March 31st, have your boat/motor tuned up and checked out and save 10%.  Call Dennis (service manager) 925-6158, Ex 2.
