Fishing is great

Choctawhatchee Bay: East end of the Bay folks reeling in black drum and some redfish. West end much clearer with good trout and flounder, even some silver trout being caught.
Creeks/river: High water in the river making catfish fishing good.
Offshore: Good offshore fishing overall. Some reeling in pompano.

Hunting: Folks are warming up for bow season. Copeland’s has some new Bowtechs now in stock.
