Clearwater - Saltwater Fishing Report
KINGFISH: Kings have arrived at numerous locations and are eager to eat. Spring is here. Reports have been coming in from close to shore all the way out to 10 miles. Its going to be a banner sorting for these migratory speedsters. The next two months will produce great catches. With summer just around the corner, fishing is getting ready to pop. As the bait starts to
show up, expect Mackerel and King Fish, as well Cobia to follow them into the nearshore
reefs and hard bottom off Clearwater. Mackerel, Kingfish, Cobia, Redfish, and
even some Tarpon can be caught in April until the end of summer.
The kingfish are here in full force.Tarpon started to show in are backwaters
with a few in the clearwater area. and Tampa Bay. Pompano have show up in good numbers in the passes and also around the jettysand on the beaches
Pink and white bucktail jig tips with shrimp has worked the best so far, but dock goofy jigs with a fly
will get it done as well. Redfish, Trout, and Snook have been in the same places in the backwater.
Small Pinfish and Pigfish with the tail and fins cut off is producing the better fish.You don't want to kill the bait,
it just needs to flutter on the bottom. With so many species around, you can have a shot at catching
some big fish to test your skills.
