Tarpon can still be found in good numbers on the beach from Captiva to the Venice Jetty. Hookup numbers have been good when targeting the tarpon with crabs or threadfin on a cork.
Snook fishing is getting hot this time of year as well. They can be targeted in the all the passes on the outgoing tide as well as in the troughs of the bars throughout Charlotte Harbor. Free lined pinfish & threadfin have been hard for the snook to pass up. Snook up to 40 inches have been common.
The offshore bite has been steady as well. Big mangrove & yellowtail snapper have been plentiful. Remember to always have fun & take a kid fishing!
