Fishing is good, deer are finally on the move!

Choctawhatchee Bay: Speckled trout and redfish along with a few sheepshead. Hearing a few folks are gigging flounder.
Creeks/river: Around the mouth of the river folks are catching some mid-size hybrids. Crappie in the river.

Deer are on the move finally with the bucks starting to chase the does.

Danny Copeland wants to remind folks that the contrary to what FWC has stated about not printing the regulation books, plenty of the new 2012 books have been delivered to the shop. Come by and pick one up. Also, a reminder that new regulations include no closure of season for trout and redfish limit has been upped to two.
