Drop Down Sport Fish Charters Fishing Report for St. Augustine Florida - 12/25/2017

 Bait: Ballyhoo 

Water temp: 65 degrees

Water depth: 150-500

What's biting: Wahoo and tuna fish

Merry Christmas everyone from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in St.Augustine Florida. Hope everyone had a good year in 2017. Offshore fishing charters have been pretty decent, some wahoo have been caught and a few tunafish, but nothing red hot. When I troll for wahoo deepsea, I like the morning’s and look for structure that holds bait. Blue and white lures with ballyhoo are a go to. As far as inshore fishing goes, redfish trout, black drum, and sheep heads are all biting very well. I have been catching a lot of creek fish on pop and cork floats with live shrimp drifting over oyster bars on an incoming tide.  A fiddler crab on a jig head or fishfinder rig has also been producing black drum on the bottom. Till next time hope everybody has a merry Christmas and a happy new year and  thank you for all of my clients that fished with me this year can’t wait to see everyone next year and 2018 .
