Late Season Cold Fronts

Capt. John Fischbach
March 13, 2013
Clearwater - Saltwater Fishing Report

Tarpon Springs fishing guide Capt. Rich Knox reports inshore flats fishing, steady Spotted Sea Trout, Red-fishing, Snook and more on the late season cold fronts that have been passing through. Even with water temperatures hitting 60*F the fish are still active enough to have a great day on the water, find protected areas on the high tide of the day and work it well, north facing shorelines also heat up faster as the rising sun beats on them all day, with daylight saving time here these temps won't last long ! There are plenty of large Trout around even on the coldest of day's, select shrimp or even better fresh live scaled sardines work well along with a number of artificial baits, like a 1/4 oz jig with a green and white 3″ paddle tail pogy or gulp shrimp in new penny imitation work for me. Red-fish are still stuck on select shrimp in most places as our migratory baitfish run has been slowed down by cloudy water and low temperatures in the New Port Richey, Tarpon Springs and Clearwater areas. Snook are found i9n the creek mouths and all estuary systems and are willing when a properly presented Sardine gets in there kill zone. On the nearshore fishing Reef's and Wreck's there are sign's of the Spanish Mackerel and King-fish arriving as the water cleans up and water temperatures rebound with the passing of these fronts
