Fishing Report - March 7, 2012

From the News Herald (;

Freshwater: This warming trend is great for fishing. Good reports from Lake Wimico and Howard Creek are of catches of shellcracker, bass and catfish. The rising waters last week also was good for catfish at the damns and in the big rivers. Crappie continue to bite in all the waters around the Forgotten Coast, but better reports are coming in from Depot Creek.

Inshore/Piers: This week the water temperature in St. Joe Bay was 66 degrees. Only a few more weeks until the magic number of 68 degrees is reached. Redfish are being spotted in Eagle Harbor and on the flats in the bay, as are trout. Some decent-sized fish are being caught at the sea wall in the marina, but the better reports are coming in from Cape San Blas and Indian Pass. Snowbirds are reporting good whiting catches from the beaches and a few pompano.
