Spring time fishing around Palm Island, Manasota Key, and Boca Grande FL. has gotten good!!! We are seeing schools of redfish on the flats, and lots of snook for rod bending action. Our water temperature has been hovering in the high 70s, but we are yet to see 80 degrees consistently this spring season.
Even though, there are tarpon being caught in the southern sound, and groups of fish gathering in "Big Pass". We are on the door step of some stellar fishing. The next few weeks, the weather should become a bit more consistent and with that the fishery will explode with opportunity!!!
This late spring/early summer season is shaping up to be a great time to go fishing in South West Florida!!!
