Update on the Choctawhatchee River:
A year has passed since my last post about the Choctawhatchee River in the Panhandle. The bream/shellcracker bite so far this spring up until the present has not been anything near what it was this time last year. However, actually it has been a decent bite with some huge blue gills and shellcrackers going into the box.
I fish the river 3 or 4 days a week and catch all the fish I need to keep and release the others. I'm not much of a bass fisherman but do enjoy fishing bass with a good friend who fishes nothing else. The bass bite has been good for several weeks and from what I can tell the tournament folks are happy.
Here are a few photos of a decent bream catch last week. We brough 36 keepers home and thie photos are of the largest.
