January 2015 Fishing in St Pete Beach

Had a great weekend – despite cooler temperatures and low tides, the fish were biting. Jumbo live shrimp tossed under the Merry Pier yielded redfish, black drum and even a flounder! The redfish were all at the top of the slot, and hits were pretty tentative – the fish would simply inhale the shrimp and slowly swim off. FYI, small black drum are excellent, so long as you trim all of the darker meat off the fillets. Dredge in butter, coat with blackening seasoning, and toss in a smoking hit pan. Turn frequently to prevent burning, and serve with drawn butter. Awesome!
