Bang I’d say March came in like a lion.....whew has it been blowing or what..... .Just ask the NFGFC ( North Florida Gulf Fishing Club members who fished last Saturday (3/3) about the w-i-n-d which blew all the water back to Mexico. They had a tough day on the water but several teams weighed in limits of five trout including Michael Aman of Perry with his daughter Makayla who won the event with a 13+ pound string of trout. Michael also had BIG trout of the tourney with a 26”

, 6.33 Pound BEAUTY. Michael said they had 6 ( six , count ‘em) bites all day!


here is a report from David Bosch,of Tifton, Ga. “Fished with Peng and Ronnie from TN on Saturday the 3rd.  Got delayed until around 11:30 by the extreme low water, but eventually got on some fish.  We wound up with 13 sea trout and a couple of surprise Spanish.  We caught the majority of our fish in the middle of the rising tide in around 4.5’ - 5'.  Water temps were 65 to 67. Started out with shrimp and white curly tail grubs. Picked up pins fairly easily and then used a mixture of the three.”

Doug Garwood from Dalton Ga. was down in Steinhatchee, most of last week, with his buddy Joe and they caught a bunch of short trout while having 2 – 4 keepers each day with a limit of reds every day they fished. 1.5 – 2.5 ft. was Doug’s best depth as he prefers throwing Renegades all day.

Cooler temps this week will slow the bite in shallower water and probably have less effect on the deeper fish. Try Bite-A-Bait fighters and MirrOLure’s L30 MR s.
