Fishing this weekend Nov 21 -22 near St marks

Post by ropeman »

I need some expert advise about fishing this weekend (Nov 21 - 22). I have struck out for the past several months only to hear that others have been successful in other areas. I have spent the last few trips in the East river near the lighthouse thinking the colder water would hold fish there only to hear that a fried caught several in 6 to 7' of water near the eastern rocky areas. What do the gurus of inshore think about this weekend. I know the tide will be low around noontime but the activity looks good.

I’m chasing other quarries this weekend. If I were inshore fishing out of st marks I would run to redfish point and head north to the shore. Any of the rocks at creek mouths or even a couple miles deep in the creeks will hold fish.

Just my .02. Do as your heart desires...
In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. And we will understand only what we are taught.

I would start in about 3' of water on the flats in front of the lighthouse and work my way to the mouth of the river. This is based on today and if we get a cold front they'll move up.

IMO other than where the east river meets the st marks I wouldn't fish there right now. There's going to be redfish all over the place from halfway up the river to the flats but the "action" or hotspot is near the mouth right now. Trout are still on the grassflats as of yesterday.

Thanks for the info! We caught 4 keeper trout Saturday, one on the first cast before low tide and 3 more as the tide was running in. I explored some areas new to me from Big Pass to Johns Island. I will be back in that area soon to explore more.

I haven't found redfish point on the chart yet. Are there any other landmarks you can give to help my search?
