Words from Gulf Coast Fisherman - Fishing the Bay and Gulf -
Panacea, one of the lesser known coastal communities in Florida, claims a high percentage of undeveloped land in the county with plenty of seafood on the docks daily fresh out of the Gulf of Mexico and the area still retains undisturbed natural splendor. Located in Wakulla County, less than an hour drive from Tallahassee, you will find the community warm and friendly. Panacea was named for the all-potent healing powers attributed to a spring that once flowed near town.
Numerous tributaries flow into the bay and produce fantastic fishing in the fall and winter for trout, redfish and sheepshead. When the waters warm in early spring, the trout head for the shallow grass flats along the shoreline and this is when most anglers' attention turns from tributary fishing to drifting the flats for speckled trout. By early April, schools of baitfish appear in the bay bringing Spanish mackerel and ladyfish with them.
In May, cobia arrive and all species are in the bays by then except tarpon that typically show up around the end of the month or early June. Fishing slows somewhat in summer, except for tarpon. By the end of August and first of September, fishing gets its second wind and remains good through fall and early winter.
If you want to feel more weight on your line, a ride into the Gulf will provide you with some of the best grouper fishing in the state. Black and red grouper are plentiful as well as red snapper, amberjack and king mackerel. Bottom fishing is the most popular fishing method offshore but trolling for grouper has become very popular.
