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!
