Fishing is hot!
Since my last report a while ago, I've done quite a few Guided trips and a couple Red fish tournaments. I haven't written much lately due to I am currently back in school training my brain, but that's winding down and I will be back to writing on a weekly basis. Well the big schools of Bull reds are definitely all around Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound and Matlacha Pass. The trick to that is staying up on where they are and staying on them. The water temp has dropped to around 88 degrees on any given day, the water all around is coffee and should be getting clearer with less rain. I prefer a slight stain in the water but still be able to see bottom in 3 ft of water. Winds are picking up as we head into fall and winter fishing, so make sure you let the wind help you find the fish. I've been out catching my bait before picking up my clients each trip and using mostly pinfish and white bait for the days catches. I use the 3-5 inch ones for reds and snook and any smaller ones for snapper and trout. It won't be long before shrimp will be the go to bait. And for those that have fished with me before Know I totally prefer cut bait when I fish. I've been doing a lot of flats fishing over the last month watching for signs on the water to see where the reds are. Weekends seem to be a little harder to find since there are 10,000 boats on the water running over the skinny water not knowing what they are doing or looking for. But in the middle of the week when there is less traffic and the fish settled back down into a scheduled pattern with the tides and wind it is much easier. Snook have also been out on the flats and catching them is a blast and knowing what to do when they decide to jump and do a little dance trying to spit your rig will definitely increase your catch ratio. I've had several clients loose some nice fish that way. Like and share my Facebook page and see all the latest pics and information on Jimbo's Charters.
If you're ready to go fishing give me a call to plan your trip so we can try and catch the tides right. As I do cater to the Veteran community, if you're a Veteran with proof I have the best prices around and I guarantee it. I'm also on Facebook at Jimbo's Charters.
