Pier/Beach Fishing


Pathetic!
1/16/2018
 
I know it is January and the water is cold but this is pathetic. Except for a couple of Flounder on Sunday it was almost a fishless week. We did have a couple of days with a few Bluefish around and a single “rat” Red Drum but other than that, the water was void of fish.
 
Brenda got the week started with a couple of Flounder Sunday morning which gave us hope for the catching to improve. However, that just didn’t happen. We did get two days with Bluefish around to keep us entertained and one late afternoon I struggled to catch a single “rat” Red. 



 
By the weekend, another cold blast came in with wind and rough water which resulted in filthy water clarity. The only two positives are that you can pick your spot to fish and it has to improve.
Hopefully the Bonito will show soon!
 
Species caught: Flounder, Bluefish and a “rat” Red Drum. No bait.
 
Water temperature continues below normal. It did recover to 57 just before another cold front hit for the weekend.

2018 off to a slow start with unusually cold water
1/8/2018
 
We begun 2018 with an artic blast that kept us in the sub 50 temperatures and dropped our water temp to as low as 52.7. This is a full ten degree difference from what we experienced this same time frame in 2017. As a result, fishing has been extremely slow except for a couple of days. The water has been clear and thus you could see the total void of fish prowling near the pier. A few Whiting, Drum, Bluefish and Flounder were the only fish around.
 
The week started with a few Whiting hanging in the shallows yet were very slow to bite.You could get a mess for dinner if you hung in there. Kermit was persistent and took home enough for a good meal. However, they did not hang around long as the water got cold. 


 
The skinny water also produced a few Red Drum. With the extremely low tides, we were finally able to pump a few Ghost Shrimp on the beach. That was the ticket to get the Red’s attention. Several under slot fish and an over slot were decked and released. I was able to land one fish that barely made the slot at 18 ¼ inches. I hooked one puppy Drum but lost it trying to lift it over the rail. 


 
Skinny water was not the only action as the end Tee produced good catches of Flounder two days. No one got close to a limit but 9 were caught one of the days. At least they were decent size. Live Bull Minnows were your best chance to get bit. 


 
Species caught: Whiting, Flounder, Bluefish, Red Drum and a Black Drum. No bait.
 
Water temperature dropped as low as 52.7 during the unseasonably cold week. It is still below normal and the fishing has suffered.

Good bye 2017
1/3/2018
 
A quick look back at the closing weeks of 2016 showed good fishing/catching and water temps warmer than this year. The temps held near 67 until a cold front pushed them down to 63 at the end of the year. Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Whiting, Pompano, Bermuda Chub, Bluefish, Octopus, Red and Black Drum were on the catch list. This year, our water temp has been several degrees cooler for the same time frame. Catching has been slow with only a couple of good days of Bonito.  Whiting have been hit or miss in the shallows and “Bull” Red Drum have been strangely absent with the exception of one day. We are still waiting on Squid to show but at least Sheepshead have been around a couple of days during the past two weeks. An occasional Flounder was decked but no consistency in the bite.
 
Other than spectators, the end Tee has been mostly empty. A few anglers ventured to deeper water hoping to cast on Bonito or drag for Flounder. The Bonito did show in good numbers a couple of times and one morning the bite was on. I got reports of 30 or more Bonito being caught. Kimel targeted Flounder several days in a row and was rewarded with a couple of keepers. 


 
Mid-pier held a little Sheepshead action. On two days large schools of Sheepshead were on the move from piling to piling between the outer sand bar and the first Tee. They had lock jaw most of the time but persistence and patience paid off. Live Shrimp enticed a few bites and several nich “Sheepies” were caught. 


 
As usual for this time of year, Skinny water was the place to fish. Whiting were the mainstay but a couple of Red Drum and a lone Pompano were on the catch list. Fresh Shrimp was your best bait but a few Whiting were caught on “Fishbites” as well. Catches seemed to improve over the past few days. Randy, visiting from Mansfield, Georgia, fished hard for a week. He was the lucky angler to catch the only Pompano and a slot Red.  


 
Species caught: Whiting, Sheepshead, Bonito, Flounder, Bluefish, Red Drum and Octopus. Bait was scarce.
 
Water temperature hovered in the low 60’s. It was as low as 59.7 yesterday morning.

Noel Pier Report
12/20/2017

 
We are definitely into the Winter pattern. Our water temp has stayed in the low 60’s, which is about 7 degrees cooler than last year. A quick comparison from this same week last year showed other sharp contrasts. Last year we caught Whiting by the hundreds for three days, Pompano catches were unbelievable, numerous Sheepshead hit the deck and even a few Palometa were caught. However this year saw a few Whiting Sunday morning with the remainder of the week producing only a few here and there. I saw only two Pompano caught. Sheepshead began to show around the pilings but were not eating. The end Tee was lonely both in angler and fish population. Skinny water was the only place to fish if you wanted to get bit.
 
The only game on the end Tee was Flounder. Most catches were small but some keepers made their way into coolers. Live Bull Minnows seemed to be the best option and even that bite was slow. A couple from The Rock, Georgia (near Barnesville, Ga. and the 1250 acre rance that was owned by Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy) were visiting and trying their luck pier fishing. Kari showed us how to catch a Flounder. 


 
If you didn’t have the patience to drag for Flounder on the end Tee, then your options in skinny water were better. Schools of mostly “Rat” Red and “Puppy” Black Drum were gathered under the pier between pilings. The bite was consistent with Ghost Shrimp, fresh Shrimp or fresh cut Squid for bait. Most of the Reds were under slot and the same for the Blacks. Here are a few of the keepers that were invited for dinner: 



 
Species caught: Whiting, Red Drum, Black Drum, Flounder, Bluefish and Hardtails. Bait was scarce.
 
Water temperature hovered in the low 60’s.

One last King
12/13/2017
 
 
Our first full week of December was cold, windy and came with a few surprises. Whiting were thick in the shallows, a few Flounder were still biting and the water temp dropped like a rock, as we had the coldest temperatures all year. A Manatee swam by and a lost Bonefish was caught mixed with the Whiting. The angler population was sparce so you had your pick for rail space anywhere except in the shallows – “Whiting hole”. Check out the video of the Manatee on his way to winter grounds and the picture of Brenda’s Bonefish.





 
Whiting were the most caught fish all week. They moved into the shallows thick and were more than willing to eat. Fresh shrimp, fresh squid and “FishBites” worked well. Coolers were loaded with catches of upwards of 50 fish. Kaleigh and Tyler, Brenda, Ted and even I got in on the action with the following result: 


 


Flounder came in second as several were decked. You had to work at it but if you put in the time targeting them, you could take home enough for a meal. Brenda worked the Flounder hard most of the week and had success using bull minnows. No limits caught but a 3 fish average left her with a decent catch for the week. 


 
Thanksgiving usually marks the close of our King Mackerel season and it looked like that would be the case this year. We had not caught a King in over two weeks. The water temp had dropped and the amount of bait around the pier was few. However, Wednesday the conditions were promising with wind speed and direction along with current, got our hopes up. Tommy L. braved the cold air and wind to cast his X-Raps for a final try. His excitement rocketed as a large King blew-up on his Rap. No hook-up but it did bolster the hope for one last King. After an hour and a half of casting, the cold wind took it’s toll and Tommy headed in to get thawed out. As he exited the pier, I headed out to the Tee. I didn’t even bring my King rod and reel as I too thought it was over. However, after hearing Tommy’s story, I rigged one of my bottom rods for Kings and began throwing a Cigar minnow. Nothing for a while then a bite that turned out to be a small Spinner Shark. Rob joined me and was throwing a bubble rig when I got slammed. Line began peeling of the spool and after about 100 yards the line went limp. I got cut-off. Rob had had enough and headed back to the shallows. I was getting cold and decided I would throw one more cig before calling it a day. I made several drifts and made that statement many of us make: “one more drift” and I am going home. Half way through the drift, I got hit again.Line ripped through the water and I knew it was a King. Who would believe a December 6th King in Panama City Beach. It was not big at 11 pounds 4 ounces but it was worth the effort. Will it be the last King of the year? Time will tell. 


 
Species caught: Whiting, Red Drum, Flounder, King Mackerel,Bonito,  Bluefish, Bonefish, small Jacks and Hardtails. Bait was scarce.
 
Water temperature dropped as low as 60 with the cold week we had.

Big difference from last year
12/5/2017
 
This week last year brought a great King Mackerel bite on Monday with close to 20 being decked and many lost. There were no Kings this week. Then Tuesday-Thursday last year was rough water with Sharks and Catfish. The week closed with a great skinny water bite of Sheepshead, Pompano, Red and Black Drum. This year there were Whiting, Rat Reds and tiny Pompano. One slot Red, no Sheepshead or legal Pompano. The choice bait last year was Ghost Shrimp. They were plentiful on the beach. However, this year, if you want to pump Ghost Shrimp you have to go to the Bay as the Beach has almost zero holes.
 
Skinny water seemed to be the most productive area to fish this week. Whiting were hanging close to the beach and just outside of the first sand bar early mornings and late afternoons. Ghost Shrimp was the top bait but a few were caught on fresh Shrimp and Fish Bites. A good size school of Rat Reds were around most of the week. I convinced 12 to eat one afternoon using cut local Squid. Several others were caught during the week but I am aware of only one big enough to keep. Guy W. caught it and it was barely legal at 18.5 inches. Tiny Pompano were abundant but were not any bigger than 8 inches. Friday afternoon brought a rare sight. We thought it was a small shark about 4-5 feet but as it got closer we could identify it’s rostrum. It was a Sawfish, the first I have ever seen locally. Even though it looks more like a shark it is in the Ray family. It never got close enough for a photo but at least there were several others there to verify the ID. 


 


The Tee was mostly void of fish unless you wanted to throw a bubble rig for Hardtails. There were a few Flounder if you were persistant. Most were under 15 inches. Bull Minnows worked best but Terry M. showed they will bite almost anything. Terry was working his Octopus jig when he felt a hit. Thinking he had a nice Octopus, he set the hook and pulled up the biggest Flounder caught this season. It was just over 20 inches and about 3.5 pounds. 


 
Octopus have been scarce the past few weeks but Nori located a nice one Saturday. No doubt, it went home with him for a fresh dinner. 


 
Species caught: Whiting, Red Drum, Flounder, Pompano, Octopus, small Jacks and Hardtails. Bait: Cigar Minnows, Ballyhoo, Hardtails and a few Speedos and Scaled Sardine.
 
Water temperature fell as low as 66.8 this week then warmed a little by the weekend.

Unusual Catches
11/27/2017
 
 
Pier fishing brings a mixed bag of species but this week brought a couple of unusual catches. Who says you have to go off shore to catch Grouper or Red Snapper? There were still Kings around and the Flounder bite continued. Red and Black Drum were in the shallows. A few Whiting were caught in the evenings and even a few big Squid were around. A few small Pompano came over the rail but none were keepers.
 
Sunday brought us a couple of King Mackerel but that would be the last ones for the remainder of the week. Monday through Saturday would be void of any more Kings. However, the “fish tale” on how the bigger one on Sunday was caught, is what made Von’s trip from Georgia worth the effort. Most of us had given up on this King season as over. So, dragging for Flounder had taken over the Tee. Von was dragging a large Bull Minnow using a mono leader and a small single hook when he suddenly got slammed. Line began peeling off the spool and everyone was confused about what he had. The mystery soon turned into excitement and  caution as the 19.25 pound King Mackerel surfaced. Noone thought the mono leader would hold but the hook placement was perfect. Just as the fish hit the deck the hook fell out. Nice Flounder Von…. 



If that tale wasn’t good enough, how about Red Snapper and Grouper from the pier. Monday, Wynn from Scottsboro, Alabama was spending a little time on the M. B. Miller when something hit his bait. He was not expecting to see this when he reeled in the fish. A Red Snapper from the pier and it would have been a keeper if it had been in season. Then Wednesday morning Curly caught a small Grouper. Of course it had to go back as it was only about 8 inches. 


 
Our young anglers were having a good week and Brewton from Cumming, Georgia proved it with this bruiser. Red and Black Drum were hanging in the shallows. It seemed as only under or over slot fish were the only ones around. Several “Bull” Reds were landed and released just like the one Brewton caught. There were schools of “Rat” Reds and “Puppy” Drum too. Fresh Squid, small Choffers and Ghost Shrimp got you bit. 


 
The Flounder bite was on most of the week. There were no limits caught but anglers who targeted the Flounder took home enough fish for a good fish fry. Bull Minnows worked well but several were caught on jigs with Gulp baits. Hugh took his share and as you can see in this photo his daughters were excited too. Kerim had to work hard for this one but it was worth it. 


 
Species caught: King Mackerel, Red Drum, Flounder, Ladyfish, Black Drum, Pompano, Red Snapper, Grouper, small Jacks and Hardtails. Bait: Cigar Minnows, Choffer and Hardtails but not as plentiful as had been.
 
Water temperature ranged between 67 and 71 most of the week.
