Inshore Adventures

Ive spent the last week fishing the inshore waters of Charlotte Harbor, Gasparilla sound and Lemon bay. Ive gotten to fish some great families in search of some outdoor adventure. Redfish and snook and trout have been prevalent in our inshore waters.

Mostly feeding on live white bait and pinfish. These fish have been very active, especially with the water temps falling. Our bait in the area has been all over the place, keeping our inshore species fed and ready to attack your bait as it hits the mangrove line. Fishing for snook and reds on free line with no weight, while trout are still feeding best under a cork on small pinfish.

Juvenile tarpon stole the show on Scott and Heathers inshore trip. After they braved a windy morning and a brief drizzle, they started catching a handful of snook and mangrove snapper. As the rain let up, they both caught tarpon too. These fish in their juvenile size can aggravate even the most experienced angler. As they are known to be picky eaters, they picked right! Catching both on live white bait. These tarpon have the same tenacity as their older much larger siblings. Screaming drag off light tackle, jumping though the air to throw the hook.
