East Winds Means Beach Tarpon This Week

Capt. Dave Pecci
May 11, 2015
Charlotte Harbor - Saltwater Fishing Report

Conditions: The big wind and seas have subsided, the tarpon have returned to the beaches outside of Pine Island and Gasparilla Sounds.
Bait: threadfin herring, Green back Herring, pinfish, shrimp, crab

Fishing Tactics: The backcountry fishing as slowed up a bit but the sounds and beaches are producing. Go early and work the troughs and edges until the light get good for sight casting.
My Fly Fishing Tip of the Week: There's a lot of Pilchards and threadfins on the beaches… If your favorite pattern is not working swap to a whitebait imitation.
My Spin Fishing Tip of the Week: Its tarpon time – lube your reel service your drag and pull test your knots.
