    Does anyone know if a fishing calendar exists anywhere? I always seem to hear about the "annual Cobia migration" or "lobster season" or "scalloping" after its over?

    our forum is a large database, search and read and soon you will know. Mine is in my head.

    right on....too much in my head to remember so I'll start compiling stuff as I see it. Maybe I'll post the results in the future. Would be nice to have something to refer to so there isn't any guessing. Would help noobs as well, like myself.

    Feb and March are sheephead months. I have yet to do much fishing for them but hope to change that.

    If you want to go scalloping, that's pretty much July on the west coast. Pick a spot from Cedar Key northward and find the fleet.

    They basically look like rocks sitting in the weeds. Some will swim away from you, which is pretty neat.

    There may still be some left since it is still early in August. You will need dive flag to do this.

    It is a fun and relaxing time until you hit the boat launches. Put your patience cap on when you get there.

    November, December, January are the best sheephead months because that's when they come in from offshore to spawn.

    Thanks Sam. I usually have seen the most reports around February.

    Can't say I fish much in November or December, but will keep an eye on it.
