Clearwater - Saltwater Fishing Report
July 18, 2010 Hello Everyone. Spotted Sea Trout remains a decent catch throughout June and July with several large fish being landed. Miss Lydia, visiting with her father, from Alabama caught this 25 inch fish using a Scaled Sardine for bait. Lydia also had a blast catching several Black-Tip sharks. While several sharks were swimming around the boat, she would just lower her sardine to the nearest one and the fight would begin. Many Tarpon were seen on this fishing trip in a deep cut near the Islands. We had a few bites but no solid Tarpon hook-ups on this trip.
Shark fishing should be excellent all summer long. Late afternoon trips ending around 9 or 10pm can be scheduled in order to avoid the heat of the day. Rock piles along the beaches will hold Redfish, Black Drum and Flounder through-out August and September.
And remember – The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly. ~ Author unknown.
