12/24/18 Fishing Report: (See Fishing Report Archive at bottom of page)
December is a great month to fish this area. The temperatures have moderated with little to
no humidity and fish are active. Redfish and Speckled Trout are two of the top fish to fish for.
You can get into the rivers and around the islands where wind does not create a problem and
do very well sight fishing in the crystal clear waters of this area.
Description of the Inshore waters:
There are three fresh water, spring fed rivers that flow into the Gulf of Mexico in this area that
create a natural estuary, and give this area the title of Nature Coast. With crystal clear water,
large grass flats, islands, and back country coves, this water just begs to be fished and
people from all over the world take advantage of its popularity.

Speckled Trout (Seatrout)

Spring is the best time for fly fishing for cobia that migrate up the coast. Spanish Mackerel
