Bait has invaded the area and with it, so have the fish. I can’t begin to tell you how good the fishing is right now. Loading up the livewell in just a couple of throws ensures that we should have a banner day of fishing. The water has cooled off with all the rain and longer nights and the fish have responded by eating the bottom out of the boat.
Redfishing is as good as it can get right now. It has been many years since I have seen and caught as many Redfish as we are right now. Days of 50-100 reds are not uncommon right now and many of the fish are big. Schools of fish have invaded the flats from Tarpon Springs to Clearwater. Most schools have over 100 fish in them ranging from 21” to 32” but we have caught some bigger including on that topped 40”. Once these schools are located, chumming heavy ensures the bite will be one. These fish have been very aggressive and cooperative.
Snook fishing has also been great. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to take one of these tasty fish home for dinner as the season is short. Snook have been making their way back in from the beaches and towards staging areas before they go to their winter haunts. Again with the snook, chumming heavy in areas where you know they will be will get these fish active and on a feeding frenzy.
A variety of other species have kept us busy as well. Snapper, Trippletail, jacks, Trout, and a few Cobia. Kingfish and Mackerel should be invading the area soon also. Fishing should continue to be great until the arrival of winter. Don’t miss out on the best fishing you have ever experienced.
