Port St. Joe to Keaton Beach
Capt. Kevin Lanier of KC Sportfishing covers fishing from Mexico Beach to Steinhatchee, including Apalachicola, St. George Island, Carabelle, St. Marks and Keaton Beach
As we enter the latter part of February there is a slight noticeable change in the weather happening. Days are starting to get longer and the temperatures are rising. We are looking at mid to high 70’s this weekend.
Fishing near are inshore is picking up slowly with Reds, Sheepshead, and Mangrove Snapper topping the list around seawalls, docks, and near shore structure, Live shrimp is still your best bet with gold spoons, 1/2 ounce, being a close second.
Off shore is still a goodbye with Vermillion Snapper being the hot ticket. Red Grouper are still open and they are hungry. We always seem to find them in patches. Small live pinfish will get these fish every time.
Trigger fish will be the next opener in our area follow by Amberjack. Watch the weather and get out when you can.
