Winter bull reds

December 02, 2018Location: Destin, FL, USA

Bull reds daily in the surf now , black drum coming through in large schools along with some blue fish. There’s a few pompano around to keep things interesting. We’ve got 3 days of rain in the forecast so I expect the fishing to slow down considerably as the freshwater runs off into the gulf . Bright side of heavy rain is sea run speckled trout! As the freshwater runs off into choctawhatchee bay , trout in large numbers will chase higher salinity water out into the gulf. We target them off the beach only during these certain conditions . If you don’t mind putting on some waders and working a jerk bait we can put you on some of these big ol gator trout !
