Phenominal Fishing Continues !

Capt. John Fischbach
April 28, 2016
New Port Richey - Saltwater Fishing Report

Snook fishing,Trout fishing and Redfishing and Tarpon fishing is absolutely fish-tastic!!! On west central Florida's gulf coast, the fishing has gone into frenzy mode. Daily 3/4 and full day fishing charters using live bait, pilchards and threadfin herring has heated up and have been producing limits on trout, redfish and snook, with many releases after limits are caught with Captain John Fischbach Of Absolute Florida Flats Fishing with over 26 years of local fishing knowledge, a long time fishing guide. Oversize Snook and Redfish have been coming over the gunwale for photos to provide life long lasting memories before being released. Care must be taken when handling oversize Reds and Snook as to not damage their

organs. Holding these fish vertically damages their organs and is lethal to these reproducing size fish. Not only do we want them to reproduce thousands of more fish, but who wants to kill a fish for a photo when care can be taken….?? Keep the gills wet, no more than 30 seconds out of the water, hold them horizontally ALWAYS supporting the belly! Be sure to not take them out of the water after bringing them boat side right away, let them breathe a little 20-30 seconds before they have to hold their breath

out of the water for the photos, revive them after your photos properly in a side to side motion holding them facing the water current, not forward and backwards, pushing water into a fishes gills backwards drowns them!!! Only let go of the lower jaw when they let you know they are ready…. you'll know it when the twitches stop and the normal swimming motion comes back. A good thing to look for is the pectoral fin movement and tail movement, that's when you know your resuscitate them properly.

Target Species:

Snook, Tarpon, Red-fish, Spotted Sea Trout, and more Offshore !
