Fishing Report – Tarpon Springs- Its getting good

By February 23, 2009Fishing Reports

This past week was a busy one I fished every day with both my Airboat and my 2400 Ranger bay boat. The first few days were spent in Charlotte harbor fishing the extreme low tides with the airboat and the fishing was outstanding. Bob Dolan and his sons caught several slot redfish along with many speckled trout. Joe Marina and some of his friends fished off the airboat and had a banner day Charlotte Harbor Fishing, FLwith several oversized reds along with a limit of keeper reds and trout. I did use my Ranger for a couple of trips this week in the Anclote Island area off of Tarpon Springs. I was able to find a very good supply of sardine to use for bait. Tom Heller and his brother fished one of the days and we were trying to hold off an impending cold front, the fish did not seem to mind the weather at all. The best bite of the day happened right as the front was overtaking us. They were able to boat several trout and a couple of snook in a very short time before we had to run for cover. The final trip of the week was a long time client Joe Romanowski and his friends. These guys Snook Fishing Tampa, FLare from Michigan and bad weather has followed them the last 4 years in a row. But this year was different the sun was shining and the snook were biting, the bait of choice was again live sardines. With water temperatures starting to stay in the high 60’s it is about to really bust loose, everyday more and more snook are starting to show up from there winter homes and the trout and reds are starting to roam the flats looking for food.
