Fishing Trips

Spring, Summer and Fall Trips
During this time of the year, the redfish, trout and several other game fish move into the shallow waters. Top water lures and flies can produce exciting action, whether you are casting the marsh or fishing the clear bays and flats of the area. Typically, our guests might encounter redfish, trout, pompano, bluefish, ladyfish, jack crevalle, cobia, spinner sharks, tripletail and spanish mackerel. Tarpon are also caught during the summer months.
Winter Trips
As the water temperatures fall, redfish and trout move into the numerous creeks and rivers in the area. This migration occurs due to the fish seeking a more stable water temperature as the seasonal cold fronts pass through. These fish can be caught on artificial lures and flies. Our guests also typically encounter striped bass, bream, and hybrid bass during the winter season.
The Florida Keys
If you've fished with Tommy or Chris in Apalachicola, for a change you might want to join them in the Lower Keys out of Key West in the spring or fall. Keys trips for Permit, Tarpon, Bonefish & Barracuda are February through the end of April and the beginning of September through the first part of November. Please call for availability & details.
