Re: St Marks Flats Water Clarity

Strong tea today. Lots of short trout hanging out on the edges of 3-4 foot shoals surrounded by deeper water. Can't tell you where the big ones are, cuz I didn't find them

From calm to not calm in 20 minutes

Got sporty out there today. Launched out of Carrabelle before dawn, put plenty of pinfish in the boat before heading offshore. Started out fairly calm, but 1-2 foot chop turned into 4-6 ft cresting waves in less than half an hour. Really tested the old Wahoo. Glad to be back on shore. Sent from my S...

Re: The trout seem to have worms right now

Pretty common. Extra protein, not harmful except the ick factor.

Variety pack

Went to the flats east of St Marks to catch some pinfish, and of course you have to put a line out - caught some shorts and this one trout was good size. 6 foot deep near the edge of a shallower shoal on a live pinfish & cork. Offshore it was a day of fish too short to keep. 7-8 grouper all 16-1...

Re: Fishing the wind

I used to fish out of a 12 foot wooden jon boat I built, so I feel ya. One option is to launch at the lighthouse, turn right coming out of the canal and fish the bars or go up the East river and the creeks it connects to.
Good luck!

Re: What am I doing wrong

Water was super-clear and 70 degrees on the flats by the rock garden. I tried a few spots in the river, a while drifting the flats, and then it was so calm I felt compelled to hit some nearshore reefs to see if the sheepshead were spawning yet. Saw lots of dolphin playing at several spots, but I did...

Re: Fog

It was foggy offshore until almost 4 pm. Can't say I went at fast idle, but I throttled back to a speed where I wasn't outrunning my visibility.

Re: Trolling strategies

Thanks for all the advice. Didn't lose any on the trolling lures today, 1 keeper and some shorts. The big one in the picture came drifting live bottom in 45 feet with 2 sardines on one big circle hook. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211205/b75a4d34382d139d2ed5487b683a7c47.jpg Sent from my SM-G95...

Re: Winter pinfish?

Gotcha, I did that the other day. They're good if you use them right away, not as hardy as pinfish in the livewell

Good advice. And I do wear the kill switch and inflatable vest. Good strategies from everyone - great forum!

Re: Winter pinfish?

I found some on a public reef in 40-45 feet last week, trolling a blue-green diving plug. I've caught them before on reefs closer to St Marks, but those get a lot of fishing pressure

Winter pinfish?

So the pinfish have moved off the flats and I need my grouper bait. Do they act like trout and move into the river, or do they go to deeper water like nearshore rock piles?

Re: blackened fish instructions

They also sell Prodhomme's blackened seafood seasoning at Publix. I use that even if I'm not technically doing the super-hot blackening thing. Just sprinkle it on filets and sautee in a little olive oil on the stove. Medium high heat gives you a little crisp on the outside, tender on the inside Sent...

Re: Trolling strategies

I have a good fishing buddy, but he works lots of weekend & holiday shifts in law enforcement. And I must confess, time on the water alone is good for my soul.
