Navarre Fishing Report for the Month of June


Navarre Fishing Report – June

Welcome to the Navarre Fishing Report for June! We’ve had an excellent month of fishing in Navarre Beach, Florida, with plenty of exciting catches to report. If you’re eager to reel in a variety of fish, read on for the latest updates and tips.

Weather Conditions

June has blessed us with fantastic fishing weather and ideal water temperatures. The hot, sunny days are perfect for fishing, but remember to protect yourself from the sun. Wear sunglasses, a hat, and SPF 50+ sunscreen. Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade to avoid heat exhaustion.

What’s Biting?


The trout bite is thriving, with many catches over 20 inches daily. You’ll find plenty of trout activity on the flats and inshore waters this month. It’s a great opportunity to catch the trout of a lifetime!

Best Baits for Trout:

  • Live Bait: Pinfish and shrimp around grass and sand mixed areas work wonders. Rig live bait on a popping cork for easy trout catches.
  • Artificial Lures: Topwater lures, paddle tails, and jerk baits are highly effective in Santa Rosa Sound and Pensacola Bay.



June is prime time for redfish, with the bite improving daily. Redfish are schooling all over Santa Rosa Sound and will continue for the next three months. Now’s the time to schedule a trip and join the action.

Best Baits for Redfish:

  • Live Bait: Shrimp, pinfish, and cut ladyfish or mullet for bottom fishing.
  • Artificial Baits: Gold spoons and jerk baits are producing excellent results.

Other Species

Thanks to the fantastic weather this June, we’ve been catching a diverse range of species. Here’s a detailed look at what’s biting:

Croakers are abundant this month, often found in shallow waters and estuaries. These fish are great for beginners due to their high numbers and ease of catch. Use small live baits like shrimp or cut bait for the best results.

Black Drum:
Black drum are showing up in good numbers. These fish are often found near structures such as docks and bridges. They respond well to live shrimp, crabs, and cut bait. They put up a great fight, making them a favorite among anglers.

Spanish Mackerel:
Spanish mackerel are active and can be spotted near the surface, especially around schools of baitfish. Fast-moving lures like spoons, jigs, and small trolling lures are perfect for attracting their attention.

Bluefish are biting well in both inshore and nearshore waters. They are aggressive feeders, so using flashy lures, plugs, or cut bait will yield good results. Be cautious handling them as they have sharp teeth.

Crevalle Jack:
These powerful fish are providing thrilling catches this month. Often found in schools, they can be caught using live bait like mullet or artificial lures that mimic small baitfish. Prepare for a strong fight when you hook one!

Flounder are prevalent on the sandy and muddy bottoms. They are best caught using live minnows or shrimp, and jigging soft plastic baits close to the bottom. Their unique shape and delicious taste make them a prized catch.

Sheepshead are frequently found around structures with barnacles and crustaceans. Using fiddler crabs, shrimp, or sand fleas as bait can help you land these striped beauties. Their fight and taste make them a popular target.
