Fishing is through the roof, get out there!

Choctawhatchee Bay: Good along the mouths of the creeks and rivers.
Creeks/river: Great fishing for trout (all sizes), redfish and a few stripers. Fish are biting on everything: soft, hard and live bait. Mullet still up in the creeks.

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.
