Pine Island Sound Tarpon, Snook and Redfish Fishing Report

Capt. Dave Pecci
May 12, 2014
Charlotte Harbor - Saltwater Fishing Report

Early in the week the fishing was all but perfect with increased numbers of tarpon cruising the beaches of each day. By mid-week the southeast and southeast winds caused swells and poor visibility. Many of the tarpon moved off the beach and the ones still there were running deep and very hard to spot in time to make a decent presentation. We fished the backcountry Friday with great success on reds and snook.

Fly Fishing Technics: We spent most of the week either poling or staked out on the shoals of Charlotte Harbor's barrier Islands. A few tarpon were also cruising the beaches.

Tarpon Fishing Tip of the Week: When the wind picks up and water clarity drops swap to a fast sinking fly and possibly a sink tip line to get down to the strike zone fast.

Charlotte Harbor Fishing Forecast:

The weather is forecasted to stabilize. Water temps will be in the 80s. The beaches should settle down and the tarpon should be showing up in good numbers. There are tarpon on the shoals in Charlotte Harbor and those numbers will increase with the big afternoon tides.

Target Species:

Tarpon. Other Species Fished for This Week: Snook and Redfish
