Default Whatís up?

I am from Minnesota and come down to Destin area for some fishing. I am disabled so I get to a spot and hang there for the day. In the past I can usually catch a few reds, black drum, blues and flounder. This year nothing, nada, had one bit on cut bate. Using, live shrimp, fresh peeled shrimp and cut bait along with Fishbites. Was it the hurricane or did a red tide come through? We havenít even caught a cat. What is going on.

Most likely red tide to be blamed. I fished at list 6 times over the winter and only managed 1 catfish. Sad story, few years from now and it should be good again.

Been slow in Panama City as well. I blame the rain, hurricane and red tide. The hurricane followed by an above average amour of rain muddied up the water here pretty bad.

Thank you for your input. It is all making Seanís now as to why there just seems to be no fish around the surf.

I don’t know if it’ll help but try to set up close to a pier or jetties. That should hold some better fish. Tomorrow morning should be ideal with the small warm front and tide change around 7am. You have a small window but you might land something better. Best wishes it’s always tough in January!
