What a time of year we are entering! Now is the time to book your trip for tarpon, cobia, big snook, sharks and the list goes on. Tarpon are beginning to show in big numbers and the bite should be as good as it gets over the next 8 weeks! . Our Cobia migration has already started and we are seeing some really big fish in the 50 to 90 lb. range. There is not too many species we dont have the opportunity to fish for this time of year so let’s get out there for some epic fishing.

What a start to our 2020 fishing season! We have been experiencing some phenomenal inshore fishing for snook, redfish, and trout. There has also been a large number of cobia wintering in our bay this year which bodes well for our upcoming cobia season. Over the last few weeks we have had an incredible snook bite and have enjoyed catching some big jack crevalle and redfish. If you are looking for table fare our sheepshead fishing is about to be on fire as well. If the last few weeks are any indicator of how our upcoming spring season will unfold, its going to be a great one! Call us today at 813-205-2327 to book your spring fishing trip.
