FISHING REPORT FOR APALACHEE BAY – APRIL 14, 2015

It’s been a little soggy this past week, but that hasn’t stopped the fish from really turning on, says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee. Trout and redfish are in full spring mode and the big girls like cobia and even kingfish have made an appearance on the flats.

The biggest news of the week is an awesome topwater bite reported on the East Flats last Friday. One crew caught 11 trout measuring over 20 inches, plus two more that almost matched that mark. All the fish were taken on topwater Spooks and scented shrimp lures. More catches were reported using live shrimp and DOA shrimp imitations. New penny has been the top color this past week.

Redfish are also chewing heartily. Aqua Dream weedless spoons in gold and pink are good choices, along with topwater offerings. A weedless jerk bait rigged with a worm hook or circle hooked through the nose are also effective. Flounder are back on the flats as well, lurking in potholes, in the drop-offs in creek mouths and around oyster bars. A shrimp lure or shad tail hopped slowly through the zone will fool the tasty flat fish.

Showering bait was a common theme in depths less than six feet. The bait was being chased by Spanish mackerel, as well as a few hungry kings zooming through the uncommon depths. Cobia are arriving daily, so be on the lookout for the brown bombers. A bright Gag Whip-it Eel or a bucktail jig on a medium-heavy outfit is the perfect set-up for lemon fish.

Pompano, bluefish, ladyfish and even a stray tarpon or two are cruising through the flats of Apalachee Bay. So get out and enjoy the fun. Just don’t forget to pack the rain gear.
