Ten Thousand Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report
Someone asked me the other day, what my 5 favorite fish were to chase? I said, simple that would be tarpon,Tarpon,tarpon,tarpon, and of course tarpon!
It is that time of year, and you guessed it. Im fishing for tarpon. This year started early for us, landed our first fish in February and since then they have gotten full attention!
Although it was an early season, I wouldn't say we are at full capacity yet. More fish are filtering everyday, along with some really big ones that almost scare you.
Good stable weather is the key to good fishing. This year has been mild as far as the spring winds, yet the water has been getting stirred up making the hunt a little tough and time consuming.
Mornings are providing plenty of rolling fish, afternoons with a higher tide and murky water has been tricky. Enough fish around to stay driven and motivated.
When we have the clean water, the sight fishing for the laid up fish has been intense with extremely aggressive takes. Some fish have been hitting the fly as soon as it touches the water before you even have a chance to strip the line making for some great stories as well as memories.
Want to take some time and say thank you to all my loyal clients. You have made this a great season and we have caught some great fish. Thank you so much, see you soon.
Ten Thousand Islands Fishing Forecast:
Stable weather will bring much more fish in as we get closer to summer.
