Fly Fishing Apalachicola, Port St. Joe, Carrabelle & Mexico Beach,
01/09/19 Fishing Report: (See Fishing Report Archive at bottom of page)
Fishing for speckled trout and redfish is good in the bays, Intracoastal waterway, inlets and
canals. It is often windy but you can find protection from the wind in the Intercoastal WW,
inlets and canals. The fish are usually 2 to 6 feet deep, so fish the fly deep and slow. Both a
floating and sinking tip line will work.

St. George Island, Apalachicola, Port St. Joe, Carrabelle, Mexico Beach, East Point, and
Alligator Point provides diverse marine habitats including the Apalachicola River basin, the

Fishing Report Archives:
12/08/18 The water is getting cooler and baitfish are active. The redfish are the
prime inshore species most anglers are pursuing. Speckled trout, Bluefish,
Ladyfish and small shark are also plentiful in the inshore water. The north wind
will help flatten the surf and protected inshore waters. When it is from the South
and very strong, it can make it tough for boats. There are numerous jetties,
inlets and docks you can fish from the bank with all the above species available.
