People always ask what is the best time of year to fish? Great question with many answers. Obviously the fall is awesome for redfish. This is the time of year they school up on the flats in abundance. Snook is great in the fall as well, while they fatten up for winter. Winter can be a lot of fun, fishing the beautiful creeks and protected mangrove areas. You will catch snook, red fish, trout, black drum and sheep head. Spring is wonderful for big trout and snook that are heading for the beach. Of course the tarpon are hear which is the highlight of spring. Summer is hot and so is the beach fishing. Snook and trout will be out there along with a few tarpon. I guess the best time to fish is the present.
