Fishing is good!

Choctawhatchee Bay: Folks are either striking out or killing the fish. It’s a hard call. Trouts and reds being caught along with a few blues and Spanish mackerel.
Creeks/river: River keeps getting better with the shellcracker starting to bite on popping bugs and flies.
Surf: Pompano fishing is still good. A kayak fisherman reported seeing a school of black fin tuna and folks have been catching them off the pier!

“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.
