Tarpon, Redfish and more in Southwest Florida

Our weather in southwest Florida around Pine Island continues to search for its consistent summer pattern. A low pressure system brought all day rains for the holiday weekend and now we are on a high with thunderstorms few and far between. It’s all good though as the rainy days brought down the high water temperatures and now we are experiencing beautiful weather to take advantage of it.

Our best tarpon fishing came from the beaches from Boca Grande Pass to Blind Pass. The fish aren’t as thick as they were in previous weeks but there are still plenty, you just need to hunt a little harder. I have also noticed plenty of snook on the beaches, most are males in the mid twenty inch range with a few larger females mixed in.

We found redfish around oyster bars in northern Pine Island Sound at the beginning of the falling tide, most of the fish we caught were in the thirty inch class. No big schools, but a couple here and there. Sea trout up to nineteen inches are still running on the deeper grass flats as are plenty of Spanish mackerel and sharks.

We should get back into a summer weather pattern soon with clear mornings for fishing before the heat of the day followed with afternoon storms to cool things back down.
