February 12, 2014 - FISHING REPORT
Another blast of winter this week re-confirms its still February, although some anglers continue to find a few quality fish, says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee. With all the recent rains, the bite in the coastal rivers has slowed. The best chance of success is going to be closer to the Gulf, where the salinity levels are higher. Way up the tidal creeks has been the most productive spots lately. Suspending twitch baits like the Rapala Twitchin Raps, DOA Air Heads rigged with a weighted swim bait hook and other slow-sinking plugs are triggering strikes. So are soft plastic jigs like Sureketch shrimp and spoons retrieved slowly off the bottom. If the forecast holds, the action should pick up again this weekend, coinciding with the full moon strong tides, starting on Friday.
We also had a report of nice trout catches up the St. Marks River this past weekend.
Happy fishing - a good day on the water is hard to beat!
