Carrabelle: The Panhandle Outdoors Fishing Team, consisting of Winston Chester, Tony Bass, Wendy Colson and Guy Carter, brought in the first place king in the C-Quarters Marina 8th Annual Kingfish Tournament. On the first day of fishing on Saturday, they caught a nice cobia, white snapper, red grouper and lots of sharks, but no king. The second day proved to be more rewarding with two kings caught. The $10,000 fish was caught around mid-day. Fishing is good in Carrabelle. Go by C-Quarters and check with Millard Collins.

Port St. Joe & Apalachicola Bay: Capt. Blair Morgan reports trout being caught in St. Joe Bay on live Lys. Blair had a good trip to the 180 Break near the closed area (offshore) catching red grouper, scamp, amberjack, also, red snapper and gag grouper, which had to be let go. Fly fishing is good (15-20 bull bream being caught) on the big river, with a blue B-Bug. Redfish and trout are still good on the oyster bars in Apalachicola Bay.

Mexico Beach: Captain Mitch Coleman reports water has cooled to 86 with the rain early this week and the water is a little cloudy. The king bite is still really good over structure with live “greenies” still using downrigger with one bait deep and one bait on the surface. The AJs are thick over wrecks in 60 to 80 ft. Live bait is the key, again. They lost a Mahi in the 15-pound class over a wreck, it was unexpected but put on a good show for some folks from Springfield, MO…then the cobia showed up and hit a king rig with a pinfish. Mitch says, be ready for anything these days, it’s opportune fishing time.

Panama City: Kings are making a strong run this week. Nice redfish are being caught off the pier, and a large school was spotted off the beach Friday, with hundreds of redfish. Speckled trout fishing has been spotty, but West Bay has been the most productive spot.

South Walton: Bruce Mixon reports the fishing is still good in the bay. He got good reports for the lower ends of Choctawhatchee River and Black Creek for bream and shellcracker. Bass are still around the mouths of the river…use a top water plug, but don’t be surprised if you catch a speck. Bruce talked to folks at the local bait shop this week, and they can’t keep live shrimp in stock. They said the reds and specks are biting the best on live bait. The live bait is attracting more keeper-size fish. The best fishing is really early in the morning, but the afternoon has been tuff, with all the lightning storms this week. Bruce says, “Happy Fishin!”
