Fishing Reports

Spring Fishing!

During the past couple weeks anglers have enjoyed catching a variety of fish on our Bradenton fishing charters. The snook bite has been great with fast action on most trips. Last week some cooler weather moved in and put the snook into a slower pattern but the redfish have shown up around the mangroves in some of the shallower bays feeding mostly on crustaceans and we have enticed some to eat whitebait as well.

The trout bite has been fairly consistent with some days being better than others but we have been landing quite a few quality fish. The sheepshead bite is going to be the most consistent with more cool weather moving in to our area early this week. No matter the conditions we seem to never have too much trouble getting some of these tasty fish in the boat. On the deeper grass flats we have seen some Spanish mackerel and ladyfish mixed in with the trout. It is only a matter of time before the weather stables out and we can start targeting the schools of mackerels and bonitas off the beach which always provides great action with the occasional spinner shark in the mix.
