Port St Joe/Apalachicola Report: Hot Bite Along the Beach
On today's episode we talk with Capt. Jordan Todd of Saltwater Obsessions out of Port St Joe, FL. We talk about the improving Spring bite and the methods that are bringing fish to the boat. Along the beach is where most of the action can be found and this is the time of year to be prepared for many different scenarios as you could catch any thing from a Cobia to Pompano. The problem with running the beaches in the Spring is weather related. Windy days can force you to stay inshore and the good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to find success there as well but if you can run the beaches the fish are thick.

Port St Joe/Apalachicola Report: Wind & Redfish
On today's show we talk with Capt. Jordan Todd with Saltwater Obsessions out of Port St Joe, FL.

Inshore the redfish and speckled trout bite has been solid and the pilchards are expected to show up in full force any day now.

Port St Joe/Apalachicola Report: Spawning Speckled Trout
On today's episode we talk with Capt. Jordan Todd of Saltwater Obsessions out of Port St Joe, FL. We talk about catching bait and the best way to approach it if you aren't on the water every day. We also talk about a few recent client trips & talk about conservation of speckled trout. This is the time of year they move onto the flats to spawn. The important thing to remember is to release the bigger females that are more than likely full of eggs. A couple of rules to note, the female trout are always the big gators that everyone is after. That makes it really important to quickly release them after some measurements and a pic or two. Secondly, the males make grunting sounds when brought to hand, those are the ones you want to keep.

Panama City Beach Report: The Spring Bite is on Fire
On today's episode we talk with Capt. Justin Leake of Panama City Inshore out of Panama City Beach, FL. We talk about the Spring time bite and it sounds like it is completely transitioned to the Spring patterns. The Cobia numbers are improved so far this year over the previous few years, the Spanish, jack crevelle, redfish & pompano have all taken up their spring time residence on the beach, so if you can get a weather window to check it out, it will be worth the effort this time of year. Inshore the bay fishing has come alive as the trout are starting to spawn as the bait moves back in. All in all, it's a great time of year to get out on the water!

Destin Report: Sheepshead on the Cold Fronts
On today's episode we talk with Capt. Lionel James of Lion's Tale Adventures out of Destin, FL. He tells us about the red hot sheepshead bite at the Destin Bridge. The weather has been dicey at best and on those Spring days when the wind is howling & a cold front shuts down the other species, that's when its time to get after the Sheepshead. You can even exit your vessel and fish directly from a piling if it is too bumpy. Hopefully warmer water temps are right around the corner and a few consecutive days will push things into Spring.

Port St Joe & Apalachicola Report: Cobia, Wind & More Wind
On today's show we talk with Capt. Jordan Todd with Saltwater Obsessions out of Port St Joe, FL. & it sounds like Spring is just right there. In fact, if the wind dies down the bite should go off in a day or two. With a week or even a few days of no cold fronts or wind the Spring pattern will kick off in full numbers. There are still fish to be caught but it has been challenging given the increased wind. Capt. Jordan tells us how he is fishing them on these windy days & talks about nabbing a Cobia when the wind dies down!
