Apalachicola Fishing Report 3-2010

I'm scared to even look at the weather forecast anymore but if you are fortunate enough to be feeling the effects of spring where you are, Enjoy!


According to Capt. David Heinke, he saw his first POMPANO of the year skip on March 19th while on a chartered Flats fishing trip with Ralph Harvey, so he went back on March 20th and caught 2 of them himself! His BEST BET suggestion is Speckled Trout - he's seeing good quality fish right now and with the river down and the water clearing sight fishing is again an option. He's finding Reds that are either real small or really big, no keeper size fish and when he does find them they are REALLY hungry and are beginning to move back to shallow water. Capt. Nathan Donahoe has been Flats fishing all around our barrier islands recently and has hooked up on some big ol Bull Reds. Capt. Adam Hudson was flyfishing for Redfish out of Carrabelle the past 3 days and reports a good showing. Yay! We ARE going to have a spring this year after all.

The past couple of days the Apalachicola, St. George Island and Carrabelle areas have become much more fishable than they have been. Capt. Jr. Holland reports catching 75 speckled trout while Bayfishing on March 18th and on the 19th his anglers limited out on trout and caught 67 large whiting. (Whiting on the beaches is a good sign of spring!) Capt. Tommy Holland's crew also limited out on specs on the 18th & caught his first whiting of the year.

And in the Lower Keys where Tommy & Chris are Permit fishing, they are seeing plenty of fish - however as flyfishermen know, permit are exceedingly tough on a fly but so worth doing. Tarpon, Bones & Cuda's are also being targeted right now. Chris is still open Easter weekend if you can make a fast break!

Find us on Facebook!! Capt. Chris & Tommy Robinson have been posting their most recent fishing photos to Facebook every other day or so. Become a fan of Robinson Brothers Guide Service & check out the fresh fish pictures!
