Fishing Report for 3/22/12

From the News Herald

Freshwater:

Lake Wimico is hot with bass fishermen. Bass tournaments lately have been producing large stringers. The shellcrackers should be bedding on the full moon of April, and if they didn’t on the last full moon of March. Lake Wimico also has been on fire with bream catches. Most anglers are using worms and spinner baits. Bream are biting on worms and crickets and they are everywhere. 

Inshore:

St. Joe Bay is coming back to life. Good flounder reports have been coming from Black’s Island and around the bomb holes. Surf fishing is producing nice whiting and all you want to catch. Spanish mackerel are at the Eagle Harbor area and out in the open water and along the Gulf side of Cape San Blas also. Use mackerel trees or Got-cha plugs, available at the Scallop Cove Bait and Tackle shop, trolled behind spoons to improve your chances. No cobia have yet been weighed in Gulf County, but are expected this week.

Offshore:

Fishermen from boats are reporting a few cobias being caught. It’s still a little early but the month of April should be hot for not only cobia but pompano as well.
