The three picture are old rods that I rebuilt. The first two were colored to look like its on fire. The next one has rattle snake skin under the guides. If you want a rod tricked out or a custom rod built contact Capt. Darel Carter at www.hookedoncharters.com or call 941-456-0415.
Redfish bite had been hot near oyster bars using live bait first thing in the morning or on lower tides, look for pot hole to hold these fish, most are over slot. Also under the bushes using live or cut baits later in the day. Small sharks will also produce using the same techniques.
Snook action is better than it ever has been using live bait or artificial jigs near mangroves or drop off areas in about 3-5ft of water, look for moving water these fish will bite best closer to the tide changes but can been found all across the harbor.
Tarpon have been schooling in small numbers in the lower parts of the harbor, Use live threadfins under a cork or throwing D.O.A Bait buster's Dark color preferably. Also juvenile tarpon have been consistent in canals and the mouth of Myakka River. Due to the high winds recently spotting these fish has been difficult, but choosing your days and going first thing in the morning should increase your chances.
Offshore the Kingfish bite is staying consistent, follow the shrimp boats to find these fish.
