Econfina River Fishing Report - A Hidden Gem

VikingViking Posts: 153 Deckhand
Took my first trip to the Econfina River which is located in the Big Bend area of Florida and I will be going back. I fished the tidal creeks that were to the north and south of the mouth of the Econfina. The best bait for me was a paddle tail jig and had steady action with reds and trout both days I fished. Being that the area is remote its pristine state has been preserved and the 3 mile trip out to the Gulf from the boat ramp was a treat in itself. Econfina State park has an excellent dock and boat ramp to launch from. The whole time I fished the area I did not see another boat.  The video has more details of the trip.
