If you’ve been thinking of booking a trip but haven’t, nows an excellent time. Call me and book now for this summer before it’s over and here’s why.
In general it’s one of the best times of the year to fish, May, June and through the summer. At certain tides and times of day the water is gin clear. The water around the sandy flats and shoals surrounding the coast becomes a beautiful aqua marine turquoise blue color depending on the conditions. All sorts of aquatic life becomes visible beneath the clear water window. Huge starfish, baitfish, all sorts of rays including the magnificent spotted eagle ray, and loads of coastal fish species including tarpon, snook, jacks pompano and others.
It’s been a really good week for tarpon. We’ve been leaving the dock at first light and getting to our spots before sunrise. Definitely my favorite hour of the day. Sometimes this time of year the tarpon bite is early in the morning. We’ve been fishing to the schools that are running along the beaches heading north on the their annual spring migration.
Snook fishing has also been a ball especially along the beaches. At higher tides and when the the sun is up so we have better visibility we’re able to sight fish. Another one of my favorite ways to fish. The snook will hug the edge of the water next to the sand. We through are baits or flies in front of them, wait for them to approach then hook up! it’s actually not as easy as it sounds and we don’t always hook up but we do have good success and it’s a great challenge.
I also have some good backcountry shark and tarpon spots then can be productive depending on the tide.
