Tarpon time! It’s been a great week fishing the backcountry estuaries of Southwest Florida. Tarpon have showed along with the sharks, snook are in the passes and the backcountry, a few reds are being caught, jacks seem to be everywhere and some nice snapper are being caught. We’ve had really good tides coming off the full moon, the strong incoming tide has kept the fish feeding as well as the hard falling tides in the afternoons.
Water is almost gin clear along the beaches and we’ve been sight fishing snook. Going forward fishing should continue to improve.
Oliver Minh and his boys caught the first tarpon of the season and batted the beast for almost an hour. Click here to learn more about tarpon charters in Naples.
Had a fun trip with Jim Mazzarelli and his daughter Anna and her girlfriend Sam, we found a cool spot to get out of the boat and snook fishing this fishy cut for snook.
