Anyone ever fish here? I'm going this coming weekend and was wondering if anything is biting. Any suggestions on catching anything other than hardheads and sail cats? Thanks!!

Wow!!

Ok I think I have information overload! :D Thanks for all the great info. I'm hoping to try stump hole this year (think it was the Capt's #4 spot or so) and I really hope to catch something other than catfish. Once again thanks for all the info!!

Fishing trip....

Well the trip has come and gone...... We caught plenty of catfish, about 50 in a couple hour period. Nothing else tho. I guess I'm going to have to pay for a trip around the bay to find the cool fishing spots. :( Had a wonderful time tho.... the water was kind of dirty but I've heard all it has been doing is raining. Best of luck on the fishing!!

Thanks - I was figuring a day with a guide would be a good idea. I have fished the gulf a lot, albeit mostly down near Sarasota, so I figure the same tactics will work here. Some clousers, poppers, shrimp, crab patterns should work. I will bring some tying materials and make up some patterns and have some fun with that too. Then there is always live bait. A bit concerned with what I am reading about sharks, seem more prevalent up here than down nearSarasota. Down there, I just made sure to stay out of the water after sundown. Any advice is appreciated!

I have one buddy who has tried fly fishing off the beach close to there, who said that it was tough just because of the prevailing winds are usually blowing in your face, makes it harder to cast. Staying out of the water after dusk is a great idea!! Plenty of sharks, but mostly medium to small sized sharks. I believe there is only one bait store relatively close to the state park, so if they are out of live bait, it could be a trek to find something fresh.
