Fishing Report — Back Bay

By Phillip Houston of The Dawn Patrol


Spring is almost here, and the fishing is starting to pick up again slowly but surely.


The piers are starting to show some signs of real life out there, and the big story was the catches of blackfin tuna at the Navarre pier. Bonita, redfish black drum, sheepshead, squid, and spotty pompano and redfish have been produced at the piers lately.


Everyone fisherman has cobia fever starting around the end of March


There is still plenty of action to find in the bay. Trout on the grass beds and deep water docks. Around the bridges, you’ll find sheepshead and redfish.
