A few beautiful Northwest Florida days sandwiched by a couple of nasty rainstorms has created a mixed bag for fishing this past week. If you were lucky enough to pick a day with nice weather you were sure to find something biting! Rough surf caused for a bit of work keeping a line in the water fishing from shore, but if you could get the line to stay out Pompano and Blues are both biting.
The piers are on fire right now with a lot of different catches, and bait is plentiful.
