Fishing Reports

Solid Snook Bite Lately

On our Bradenton fishing charters lately guests have been experiencing fast action on snook and spotted sea trout. The bite for snook has been really good on the morning incoming tides last week with live pilchards “whitebait” used for bait to entice the bite. Some of the days last week we caught upwards of 35-40 snook on a half day fishing charter. We have been catching them on the flats that have nice potholes scattered and good water flow.

There has also been an abundance of seatrout caught on some of the deeper grass flats that have good tidal flow. The trout have been in some of the shallower grass and have been even mixed with some of the snook occasionally up towards the mangroves. The best bet for them has been a little deeper for the eating sized fish 15-20 inches. We have also caught a fair amount of fish over the 20 inch mark which is promising to see for the future. There has been Spanish mackerel caught in the same areas mixed with the trout as well as ladyfish.

The tarpon are here and hungry, this weather that passed through over Memorial Day weekend along with the full moon today will affect their behavior a bit so keep that in mind.
