Default Port St. Joe gigging

Going to stay the first week of Sept at Presnells.

Should I bring my lights and gigs?

Always! I want to say that that is getting really close to what all the guys call the fall run. Good luck when you go and hope to see some great pics of some limits!

I'm used to floundering an edge of a body of water where its deep close to land.

How do you do it where its 2' deep for 1/2 mile out?

High tide work the bank (short stretchs at a time) and if you don't see anythingmove out and try zig zagging in and out looking for beds, then it a matter of tracking'em down from there.

That's what I would try first. But then again I've never been there.

Be prepared for lots, and I mean LOTS, of grass. The key to finding fish is to find the sand patches of decent size. The High/Low tide variation is huge down there so watch the tides. Floundering St. Joe bay on low tide is frustrating. You have to be so far off the bank to float that the wind can hit you even if you are on the lee bank. It's no gravy train, but you'll find a few. Good luck, and take some rods & reels, the specks & reds are rampant down there!

Thanks for the info!

Most of my stay will have a High tide mid-morning. I'll just have to learn the pass in and out of Presnells so I don't have to spend the night ona sand-bar.

I am going to Port St Joe Sept5th for a week, we are staying in the park, we always surf fish but I have been reading this web site for about 6 mths now so I am rigging a 14 ft skif to try for the first time to go gigging in the bay, can anyone tell me where to go from the park launch, and what to expect, I know some are laughing but you got to start sometime somewhere. I live in central ms. not much gigging going on up here. thanks.

I desperately hope the above post is a joke.
