Happy Fishing! Check out this weekend's Big Bend fishing report

APALACHEE BAY

Otto Hough (Facebook @myhometownfishing) says, ”Ma Nature certainly offered up some interesting weather patterns over the first part of week with overnight boomers streaming inland to the west of the Ochlocknee during the morning hours, then waves of boomers popping up in the eastern portions of Apalachee Bay by early afternoon before pushing onshore. It's been a stretch of days where the windows of opportunity have been slim before the pop-up boomers begin firing up. Hopefully, these next three days during the full moon period will be kind to anglers, boaters, kayakers and scallopers.

"With full moon tides in the weekend mix, there'll be moderate mid-to-late morning lows followed by significant late afternoon flood tides with lots of water leaving after the tide turns going into the evening hours.  Major solunar feed periods will be closely tracking the last three hours of those afternoon rising tides.

"Trout fishing has been a bit of a challenge given the hit or miss marine weather conditions. When conditions allowed, early morning topwater plugging was producing well. With the water falling out through the morning hours over each of these next three days, if weather permits early on, work topwater with One Knockers, Skitterwalks, Super Spooks or Moonwalkers, by walking the dawg. I have all my favorite bone colored lures rigged with single inline 2/0 hooks that allow the ability to work them somewhat successfully in areas of floating grasses. The trout continue to be actively feeding on the schools of greenies in the skinny waters of the Big Bend. As the day moves along, look to find those trout slipping outside into 5 to 7 feet of water in search of a little cooler conditions.
