The Florida Flats are Heating up

Spent the whole day on the flats of Charlotte Harbor. Launched an hour after sunrise. Came back in around 4pm. The fishing has been slow, but things are heating up a bit. Caught a nice red and a decent snook. Rays running around. Plenty of bait filtering in too. Its small at this point. But the temperature is rising daily. And I know the fishing is going to crank up very soon.

In the weeks ahead, I expect more reds, more snook and trout will be prowling the flats. And they will be more agressive too. Ready to take a fly. Then by month’s end, tarpon will start to arrive. Great news. Game on!
