Spring Breakout!!


It's been a busy couple of weeks with the  Fl outdoor expo, boat show and now SPRING BREAK! The kids are out of school and both they and the fish have gone absolutely bonkers!  Over the last couple weeks the water temps have shot up into the mid 70s and because of this, our more tropical species like the snook have been much more active keeping anglers happy boating literally dozens of fish on each trip.  We are also catching redfish, trout, sheepshead and snapper as well. The water is still crystal clear too which has allowed for some great manatee and dolphin viewing opportunities, up close and personal.
Over the next couple weeks we should continue to see the sardines filtering into the bay with the pelagics in tow.  The mackerel, kingfish, sharks and of course the mighty tarpon will be here sooner than later. Savvy anglers have been booking the best dates for their battles with the "silver king".  I'm hopeful this year will be as good as last so don't wait if you want to make appointment with arguably the most exciting gamefish that swims.  Until next time, Tight Lines!!  Capt.
