Pine Island Sound, Charlotte Harbor Fly Fishing and Light Tackle

Capt. Dave Pecci
April 18, 2014
Charlotte Harbor - Saltwater Fishing Report

Pine Island Sound, Ding Darling Reserve, Eastern Charlotte Harbor Fishing

Conditions: The weather fronts are becoming weaker as we move further into Spring. Bait is becoming more plentiful and water levels in the upper Charlotte Harbor are improving.

Technics that are working: If clouds or water conditions keep you from sight fishing you can blind cast to edges and potholes around the grass flats for redfish and sea trout. On the warmer days, try fly fishing the back country. Make your presentations tight to the mangroves. The snook and redfish will be there escaping the heat. When fly fishing after a passing cold front switch to a sinking intermediate or sink tip line and fish the deeper channels and holes using weighted flies.

Tip: I have never met an oyster bed I didn't like. It's worth a few snagged flies to explore them. There are many of these beds in Pine Island Sound to explore.

Charlotte Harbor Fishing Forecast:

The exiting cold front will give way to light east and southeast winds. The water will continue to warm ushering the first of the 2014 tarpon run. Watch for them at the passes and of Boca Grande and Captiva.

Target Species:

What's biting: Snook, Redfish, Seatrout and Jacks.
