  1. A few more tips on Sheepshead

    Inshore Reports
    I have been researching on the forum about how to fish for sheepshead. A few final questions before I give it a try. My teenage son and I will be heading out Sunday after early church in newly purchased boat. I was planning to fish Mid Bay bridge. I assumed I should anchor and try to position...
  2. Niceville 4/10-11

    Inshore Reports
    Spent Sunday afternoon at the bay with my daughter. Soaked some shrimp while we played and relaxed onshore. She caught some hardheads, I landed a tiny stingray as well as a 30" red. Today I stopped by the boat ramp for an hour on my way home from work to toss some artificials and see if there...
  3. 27 Feb Mid-Bay Bridge

    Kayaking Reports
    Launched with H-MANEOD around 0745 from White Point and headed south along the bridge. Hit a couple pilings halfway out and pulled up some sheepshead then pushed to the channel. At the channel I had the first hook up with a black drum on live shrimp. As I landed it my second rod with a live...
  4. 18 Feb and 20 Feb Mid-Bay Bridge

    Kayaking Reports
    18 Feb - Launched around 0930 and headed south working pilings towards the channel. Landed a total of 10 sheepshead from 14" to 20", a 27" black drum, and 4 or 5 undersize grey snapper. 20 Feb - Launched with H-MANEOD at sun-up from White Point and worked our way out the channel. The wind and...
  5. Mid-Bay Bridge 10-22

    Kayaking Reports
    Launched out of White Point at 4pm. Saw something utterly destroying full-size mullet right after launching. It was insane, they were literally flopping onshore escaping whatever it was. I'm assuming flipper but never saw any fins, so who knows. Pushed out to the bridge to check out what the...
  6. Choctaw Slots

    Kayaking Reports
    Launched about 415pm off white point with my anchor and ready to battle the wind. Using light gear at first (quantum pti20 and 12lb test w/no leader) got broken off by some decent fish around pilings at the midbay. Finally finesse two tourney winner slots, a 26" and 26.5" up. Released one and...
  7. Choctawhatchee Bay & Surrounding Area

    General Discussion
    I would like to introduce myself, I am newly registered on the forum but not new to the forum by any means I have been a “lurker” for years. Searching for local reports concerning Choctawhatchee Bay and the surrounding area. As well as learning a bunch about kayak fishing and kayaks via this...
  8. Rocky Bayou

    Kayaking Reports
    Taking advantage of some leave days and my wife and I went to Rocky Bayou for some paddling. Figured it'd be a good place with smaller beginner friendly fish and my goal was to try getting her first kayak fish. Had a blast in the couple hours we were out. SW winds 5-10, not too choppy. Bait...
  9. North Choctawhatchee by Mid-Bay Bridge

    Kayaking Reports
    I've had some days off work and have been spending probably way too much time fishing. I've spent most of that time near home; White Point launching from Maxwell-Gunter Rec. area. By and far the most active and voracious fish out in that area during all times of day are the hardhead cats and...
  10. Mid Bay Niceville

    Kayak Forum
    Was having pretty reliable bites along mid-bay (northern half of the bridge) with live shrimp last week, couldn't keep the sheepshead away and even snagged a couple bull reds (biggest fish I've ever caught, was a blast!) But they were in 23'+ deep water in the middle of the water column...
