The middle of last week brought a cold front that cooled the area off for a couple of days and changed the fishing some. The cooler temperatures of last week did not cool off the fishing, and did not stick around long. We have warmed up again nicely, taking full advantage of 80 degree temperatures in Southwest Florida. The water is also crystal clear and full of healthy fish.
Inshore fishing charters have produced a lot of healthy snook, and we have been catching good amounts of mangrove snapper. We have also been catching the occasional redfish during our trips, but they have slowed down some from last month. Tarpon are just starting to show up to the area seeing a few here and there. With the temperatures staying warm they everyone is anxiously anticipating their arrival in full force in the next few weeks.
Offshore/nearshore fishing charters have also been very productive. There’s large schools of bait along the beaches that have the Spanish mackerel fired up. They are a fun fish to catch, especially when frenzied on bait schools, as they come shooting out of the water and go airborne while chasing bait. The nearshore wrecks and reefs have also been filled with great permit, and kingfish action. Come take advantage of the best spring time fishing charters in Florida, schedule your trip today.
