Charlotte Harbor - Saltwater Fishing Report
Over the last few days the winds are calming down and the air and water temperature are finally warming up. we noticed bait(white bait and glass minnows) starting to move back into the harbor along with them the spanish mackerel and a few bluefish. up on the flats of the eastwall and west wall of the harbor, schools of redfish have been tailing during the lower tides. If you can pushpole shallow enough with your boat or have a set of waders you can stalk up on the fish quietly and throw soft pastics or shrimp in front of them. There are a few big trout still around also on these flats.
Charlotte Harbor Fishing Forecast:
Over the next couple of weeks the fishing is going to be of the hook, with the water temp. finally climbing and the arrival of bait. These fish have kind of been on a diet with the food source thin do to the extreme cold weather this past winter and there metabolism being low They will be on a feeding freenze. I would say any of the sand bars in Charlotte Harbor will be holding all kinds of fish with the bait coming in and out with the tide and getting swept over these bars the fish will be lying in wait for there next easy meal. Tarpon should be on their way and arriving in Boca grande pass very soon.
Redfish, Trout, Spanish Mackerel and Cobia
