The Water's Warmin Up and so is the Bite!

Capt. Clay Eavenson
March 30, 2008
Tarpon Springs - Saltwater Fishing Report

We had a cold front early in the week and the water temps dropped drastically. Thankfully, the air temps are back up and so are the water temps. As of today the temps are flirting with 70 degrees in New Port Richey and Tarpon Springs. That has the bait showing up as well as everything that eats it. Redfish, trout, mackerel, and cobia were all caught on charters this week and I'm looking for more of the same this next week.

With water temperatures switching from 70 degrees to 52 degrees then back to 70 degrees, we've really had to stay on our game. The fish were on the move and we rarely fished the same spots twice throughout the course of the week. Shortly after the cold front we had two slow days but now were back to normal and the redfish were chewing nicely. Fish to 7lbs were caught on scaled sardines. Though the schools of fish haven't quite bunched up together like the week before we still found schools of fish today in groups of 30 to 60 fish.

Another thing that is working in our favor is that the wind has laid down in the last couple of days. It is also forecasted to be pretty calm this week. That makes finding fish easier and it also makes casting to the fish easier.

This past week was good but this next week should be great. Keep tabs on the site and look for a great fishing report next week.

Tarpon Springs Fishing Forecast:

Cobia should re-appear and stay. Keep your eye out for big stingrays. They just might have a "brown bomber" tailing them.
