Apalachicola River Fishing

The Apalachicola River is a 106 mile river that flows south from Lake Seminole in Chattahoochee into Apalachicola Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The Apalachicola River features the largest forested floodplain in Florida and is bordered by the Apalachicola National Forest. The best areas for fishing on the Apalachicola River are in the upper river outside of Lake Seminole and lower river near Apalachicola Bay. The Apalachicola River has great fishing for many species including; Largemouth Bass, Shellcracker, Striped Bass, Sunshine Bass, Spotted Bass, White Bass, Bluegill, Blue Catfish, and Flathead Catfish. Bluegill and shellcracker fishing is excellent in the spring around fallen or submerged treetops and in sloughs off the river. Best baits are crickets, earthworms, catalpa worms, and oak worms. Bass fishing is superb in the spring and summer on the Apalachicola River. Anglers should use plastic worms and crankbaits. White and sunshine bass will hit in the spring and fall off sandbars. Use jigs, spoons, or live shad. Speckled perch will hit from January through March around fallen treetops. Use live minnows for best results. Apalachicola Bay produces 90 percent of the oysters in Florida as well as a very strong shrimping and crabbing industry.
