Florida Fishing Report
The Blackburns did the Bounty Hunter shuffle with these drag sizzling permit.
We have been experiencing some of the best flats fishing we have had in the last 5 years. As in all aspects of the outdoor world, there is an exception. Late and significant cold fronts are still crossing the entire state. Cold-blooded animals such as fish do not do well when the temperature changes near 20 degrees overnight. The good news is the warm trends are quick to follow. From Homosassa to Ft. Myers, the story is the same.
Generally speaking, things are behind 2 weeks or so from the norm. Another blast is forecasted for the weekend. Letís hope that is it for spring of 2005.
Snook, redfish, trout, jacks, pompano, tarpon, cobia, king and Spanish mackerel, permit, and grouper are the primary catches at this time. I will focus my attention to the tarpon for now and through summer. We are a little behind on them now with the cold air and water. The fish are here, but subject to fishing and catching them according to the weather.
Iíll keep the report short with text, but high in bandwidth. My apologizes for all of those I could not get in this report and to the dialup users for a large page/slow-download. Nonetheless, enjoy a few of the highlights of the last 6 weeks.
Joan Christy, along with husband Dana, had some excellent snook, red, and trout fishing while giving Jack Frost of Pennsylvania "the slip".
