More Tarpon are Showing on the Beaches Daily
Conditions: May conditions are here, water temps in the mid-eighties. Watch for those afternoon thunderstorms.
Bait: threadfin herring, Green back Herring, pinfish, shrimp, crab
Species to target this week: Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Seatrout.
Fishing Tactics: The beach is the place if the wind and swells allow. Go early and look for rolling tarpon before the wind gets going. There are big snook cruising in the troughs and on the second bars.
My Fly Fishing Tip of the Week: Anchoring up for tarpon has been more effective than stalking them with a trolling motor.
My Spin Fishing Tip of the Week: White bait and pass crabs are both getting bites from the beach tarpon. Stay back and shut off your outboard. Long casts are key.
7 day outlook: There will be some wind and showers early in the week. Things will cleat on Wednesday night. The rain and clouds should cool the backcountry water temps. More tarpon are arriving daily on the beaches and in the sounds.
I have a few Tarpon days available in May. Contact me today for details.
