Get ready Spring is coming

By | whatsNext

There are two seasons that the fishermen and the fish look forward to Spring and Fall. These two times of year are when the water temps are at their most comfortable for the fish and it is also when they feed the most often. But in my personal opinion i think they much prefer the Spring time as opposed to the Fall, and the reason why is because in the Spring they are going from cold water to warm and I know I would look forward to that!

Regardless what the fish like i know it is my favorite time, anything and everything will be starting to arrive in our waters. From Cobia to Trout and Tarpon to Snook, we will have an abundance of big hungry fish cruising our area in a matter of 4 to 5 ¬†weeks! So now is the time to get ready, refresh your tackle and make sure your castanets are not full of holes. And if you are waiting to get out with me on a charter start looking at dates NOW, May and June Tarpon are almost filled up and march and April inshore are booking at a very rapid rate! So don’t miss out on what should be one of the best springs we have had in a while!

Lets fish!

Fall is upon us!

I know it is still 90 degrees out but the humidity is starting to fall and the winds have a hint of north to them now, and the cold fronts that were staying to our north are rolling though to the Caribbean also. Soon the cool and cold air trapped to our north will find its way to Florida and begin to cool our warm waters. This is one of most anticipated times of year, the water temps will drop and the fish that have been slow and lethargic all summer will have renewed vigor and better yet a very big appetite. Our Migrating fish that made there way to the north Gulf will be passing back through on there quest to stay with the warm water they crave. While they are passing through we will have 3 or 4 weeks with them here in Tampa Bay, depending on mother nature of course. The rivers and Bays will begin to see activity from the one fish that seems to trigger it all…the Mullet. These plankton eating fools will gather in enormous schools preparing to spawn in the winter, while they are in these schools the Redfish, Trout, and Snook will join in looking for an easy meal, and we will be there to give it to them.006 (2)

Well it is HOT summer has arrived and the water has warmed up to a comfortable 86 or 87 degrees! I know that may sound hot to some, but when the air temps are in the mid 90’s that doesn’t feel to bad. And We have the perfect activity for this time of year.

Scalloping, these bi valve creatures invade our flats every year and are some of the tastiest treats our waters have to offer. They are very easy to capture also, all you need is a mask and snorkel, some swim fins, and a mesh bag to carry them in. Finding them is not very difficult once you know what you are looking for, it is like an underwater Easter egg hunt.

There are some laws that you must abide by such as you cannot be in possession of scallops south of the Pasco/ Hernando county line. And you can only have 2 gallons per person in you boat at any time with a limit of 10 gallons per boat at any time. Scalloping is a great way to “beat the heat” this time of year for sure, and anybody can do it. And at the end of the day you will have a great dinner for your efforts.

If you are interested in doing a scallop charter just give me a shout and we will get in the water.
