Default Bo Bo's Gone

Im mad they are already gone, whats the next season to look for. Sheepshead is way too boring for me. I like the drag and fight from Bo Bo's. Want that same fishing high. So I think Im going to chill, if I cant find anything. Anybody got anything for me?

We just went out of Destin on the boat Sunday and there were bo bo's everywhere, it was like we were driving through school after school. There were multiple large pods within 1 mile of shore. If we wanted to catch 100 of them we could have. Don't give up yet!

Sunrise to about 9-10am you can find them running the beaches. If you are fishing in or around the passes, key in on the high tides. They have been moving inside the passes and along the beaches when the water in comming in. Also, try on the first day or two the wind switches from the north after a front pushes through.


Destin has been very active

Targeting bonito off piers and jetties is a wintertime event so they should be around for a while yet until the water starts warming, but the conditions required for an appearance are anyone's guess, they are pretty unpredictable in my opinion. Put in the time and you'll eventually be in the right place at the right time. It's been my experience lately that they are somewhat more likely to show up when the surf is up a bit, so any southern component to the wind might up the odds of an appearance. By spring you'll need a boat to target them.
Squid should put in an appearance any time and they are typically around until the spanish show up in the spring. The pompano spring run usually starts sometime in March. Cobia usually show up near the beginning of April.
