Warm weather sets the fishing on fire!
This years weather went from cold to hot. With the weather absolutely beautiful the fishing has been red hot . This morning when we left the dock the water temperature was warm 76 degrees so we decided to look for some tarpon for the first time this year . When we arrived at the first spot we saw several nice fish rolling and within minutes of casting a sinking mirrolure we hooked up with a nice tarpon in the 70 lb range after a 15 minute fight the Tarpon took its final jump and spit the plug . After fishing for Tarpon we decided to run offshore and look fish for some Triple Tail . After minutes of stopping at our first spot we spotted a nice fish in the 10 range and with a perfect cast with a shrimp we had fish for tonight’s dinner . Later on in the day we decided to fish for some Trout and Pompano so we headed for a grass flat that was in 3 to 5 feet of water . The bait we were using was a Rootbeer Riptide Jig that the Trout and Pompano can’t resist . On our first drift across the flat we scored with some big Trout in the 5 lb range with some nice Pompano mix in . On our way back to the dock we had some time left to we stop at an oyster bar were there has been some redfish schooled We decided to use a shrimp under a popping cork for bait and that seem to do the trick we caught 5 nice Redfish up to 5 lbs. We are coming into the time of the year were the fishing in the Everglades starts to get better day bye day and with spring time right around the corner the Snook will start leaving the backcountry and heading out to gulf and the Tarpon migration should be in full swing . Along with Snook and Tarpon fishing being hot the Trout Pompano Redfish Triple Tail and Cobia fishing will should remain great providing a lot of great action…
