Hey folks, spring is in the air after what seemed to be a long cold winter event that made for a later than normal spring warm up in the area, but atleast we are past the months of rain, sleet and even some light snow flurries that moved into our area last February. We are seeing good fishing again starting late March and into early April with the Spanish Mackerel, Sheephead, Redfish, Pompano, Flounder and seeing some Cobia moving onto the beaches in the afternoon sunshine.
The Trout bite is just starting to heat up with Trout moving from the deep holes up onto the shallows of Saint Joe Bay mostly south of Blacks Island. Also the Gulf County Canal is a hot bed for fish pooring into the Bay looking to set up for the months to come into the Summer time of year.
The Indian Pass area into Apalachicola Bay is also heating up with good catches of Redfish, Trout, and some Triple Tail moving in and will just get better the next few months into the summer. The freshwater action around lake Wimico, Dead lakes, and the Apalachicola River are also a hot spot for the freshwater anglers as well can expect to land some nice ones the next couple months.
The Port Saint Joe Marina just became a Clean Marina Designated Facility thru the Department of environmental protection as well The Clean Boating Partnership Program that makes The Port Saint Joe Marina a top of the class clean and green Facility we are so proud to have in Gulf County, and Port Saint Joe!! My wife Clara Landry Marina Director and the Saint Joe Company have set the standards for all other Marina Facility in America to fallow. We feel the natural resources in our area waterways of North West Florida are most important to our way of life as well our stewardship of the land and sea are demonstrated with great value to locals and visitors alike. SALT LIFE, runs thru our vains around these parts and mother nature is the greatest gift we like to share with every one that understands the value of what we have in and around Gulf County Florida!!
