On a recent trip, 5/20, we ran about 5 miles north of the Withalacoochee River entrance at Yankeetown and fished the first 2 hours of the falling tide. Just south of the Waccassasa River, this area of the Gulf of Mexico is referred to as the Grass Flats, and is teaming with aquatic life.

We typically drift the Flats for Spotted Sea Trout, although there’s a wide variety of other species in the area. The deadly “Cajun Thunder” (a rattling float) is the rig of choice.

The bite was pretty good Friday morning. Caught our limit of Trout in short order. Although we kept enought to eat, about 7, we landed over 2 dozen “Spots” in less than 2 hours. Many were keepers that we released.

We left the Flats about 9:30 a.m. and headed for the outer markers of the Cross Florida Barge Canal in search of Cobia. Although the “Cobes” were a no show, we caught several Trout, a couple Spanish Mackerel, 2 small Gag Grouper, and a decent sized Reef Shark.

Yes, fishing in the Gulf is alive and well, and that’s the feeling you get every time you go, alive and well!

Pictured below is a mess of Spots.

‘Till next time…See you on the Gulf!

Good Luck

The peace and quiet of the river, the cast of the rod, the strike, and the sound of your voice saying,

"I Got One",

ringing across the water and into the forest.
