Tarpon, Reds and Snook are Staple
Surprisingly giant tarpon are still holding on strong. While overall and for reasons by several variables, tarpon have been in an off cycle state wide this past spring. Post-season numbers of fish are generally not of the likes we see in spring. However, several areas are holding good numbers of feeding fish at this time.
Near shore-the mackerel and bonita are
in the bait on the 20 foot contour line. Mango snapper are being taking
on the reefs and rocky outcroppings from land based structure to well
offshore. While difficult to pinpoint when and where, this time of year
we do get some visits from some offshore reds on the nearshore rock
piles, hard bottom and occasionally in the passes. Unlike their flats
counterparts, these reds can exceed 30 lbs. While they are CPR (catch,
picture and release only) they are
sporting and make for some great pictures.
Summer doldrums are near behind us as were are now just weeks away from peak fall conditions.
