March Fishing Report
March Fishing Report
March 3, 2021
Inshore: The speckled trout and redfish have been plentiful all winter and the action will only get better as the water warms. The bull red fishing is really picking up and boy do they put up a good fight. We've caught several that were 40 inches long this week. The sheepshead action is just getting started as well, and that's something everyone around here looks forward to this time of year. The sheepshead spawn during March and April and it makes for some very exciting fishing. The spanish mackerel will be showing up any day now as well. Overall it's an excellent time to experience the inshore fishery in Panama City. . Offshore: Fishing is great, we've mainly been targeting triggerfish which are in-season March 1st - April 31st along with vermillion snapper and white snapper. The catch and release amberjack fishing has been awesome, if you want to catch something that really fights reef donkeys are the fish for you. They are plentiful this time of year and will often strike top water lures and jigs.
