Awesome Summer Red-fishing !!!

Tarpon Springs - Saltwater Fishing Report

Captain John Fischbach, a full-time Tarpon Springs Fishing Guide of Absolute Florida Flats Fishing, a long time fishing guide service for over 25 years, from Hudson, new port richey, holiday, Dunedin and clearwater reports when spotting tailing redfish on bends in creeks it's a pretty good time to lower the super silent and stealthy dual power poles after shutting down the trolling motor. It's a sure way to play the schooling redfish until the tide turns or the fish get pushed up the creek from all the drag screaming bull-dogging hook ups and fights all the way to the boat, which is quite the adrenaline rush!! Stalking your fish and feeding them cut bait of all sorts from cut mullet to cut up chunks of pilchards, as the redfish forage on the bottom for crustaceans, the tender chunks of our offerings are irresistible. This technique has been getting the release count over 10-15 fish on 1/2 day flats fishing charters and 3/4 day charters have been the way to go, with 30-50 releases+ in order to get your wrist aching from all the beautiful fish that ate your chunk bait!!! 25lb fluorocarbon matched to a 1/0-2/0 Owner MUTU LIGHT CIRCLE hook. Redfishing with artificial bait is definitely a lot of fun right now also. Berkley Gulp shrimp in new penny and natural colors rigged on a worm hook is another technique.
