Fishing is good!

Choctawhatchee Bay: Lots of redfish and a good amount of trout at the ship and in Hogtown Bayou.
Creeks/river: Redfish have been spotted as far up as Bishop Lake on Mitchell River along with shellcracker. Fish are biting on popping bugs.
Surf: Mixed bag in the surf: lady fish, whiting and pompano.

“Don’t pay attention to the weatherman’s prediction, all you need to do is get out there and you will catch fish,” Danny said.
