February Tides – Fish the February Tides on St. Andrew Bay!
We didn’t get out to fish but a couple of times in January. The weather for the month was pleasant. I have reports of the redfish bite being consistent. The reports of the trout bite have been that the bite is slow, and fisherman are having a difficult time locating the fish.
The couple of times I got out, I found that to be the case.
The February tides should bring improved fishing. The redfish should start to school up. I had gotten one report from a neighbor of mine that they saw a huge school of redfish while they were doing some site seeing at the Pier Park pier.
Redfish are being caught at night fishing jigs with artificial and live bait under the Hathaway Bridge. Be there when the water is moving and I have had better luck on outgoing February tides.
Weather and time permitting we hope to get out on the Gulf and cruise the beaches looking for those schools of redfish. With boat gas prices being lower it is easier to justify spending the money on gas and Vivian enjoys getting out on the Gulf on nice days. 🙂
In shore you may find redfish schools cruising the bay as well. Look for bird activity. The schools of redfish will push the bait to the top as they feed below and the birds will tell you where that is happening.
We hope you get to get more fishing time in and fish the February tides! 😉
