Winter has arrived briefly

This week the fishing was really fun. One day we did get offshore and caught bonita one after the other and what a tough fighting fish. In the backcountry the snook bite has been good and some bigger fish are starting to show up. The redfish have been a bit scattered but still catching quite a few along with some gator trout to 25″. A cold front will arrive tonight so temperatures will drop but its supposed to bounce back in a few days so i don’t see any significant changes.

Come out for a snook fishing charter

Bull Redfish

Due to the warm weather and low winds we were able to do a cool trip today. We headed out around the sanibel lighthouse and in to the gulf. We were only about a mile off the beach and the birds and pelicans were on a huge bait pob. I knew I found the fish and as we pulled our baits behind the boat we noticed big boils in the water.

Our first three or four strikes were either not hooked or cut off. Then we hooked a big bull redfish, wow what a fight and a beautiful fish. We caught a few more redfish and some sharks and got cut off a few more times. In the clear water I could see tarpon swimming through the bait and taking mouthfuls of bait but they were not keying on a single bait so we did not hook one. But it was a great day to catch and watch this feeding frenzy. There were redfish, tarpon, bonita, kingfish and sharks just having there way in a sea of bait.

Redfish Charters

Tarpon Fishing

Tarpon fishing in our area is best in spring. The big schools of fish start to show up from the south when the water temperature approaches 80. I typically start my tarpon fishing charters in the end of april through the middle of june. Hunting the silver king is a challenge and also a thrill when you are hooked up to fish. What a rush of adrenaline these beautiful fish provide. My tarpon season is starting to fill up already so if you want to book a trip it’s best to do it in advance. Hope to see you in the spring.

The bite is on!!

This week has been really good for the big 3, snook, redfish and big gator trout are all biting in our area. The water temperature remains in the low 70’s and the fish are chewing. Bait is very abundant and the we are able to chum and get the fish on the feed. We are enjoying fairly warm weather and the fall fishing has been good. Come on out with sea reed charters for the pine island slam, snook, redfish, and sea trout.
