Snook and Kingfish on the Move

Capt. Dustin Hilliard
October 27, 2016
Tarpon Springs - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fall weather is here and it's been a real nice to have the lower temps keeping us from sweating. Prior to the cold front, the snook bite was great using pilchards and pinfish. Look for the snook to start heading towards the rivers and backcountry spots for their winter hibernation. Redfish have been consistent now that we're in the fall and winter months. On negative low tides, look for the tailing redfish on the last hour of outgoing and first two hours of incoming. A super stealthy approach is a must. I recommend getting out of the boat and wading up to them with a fly, live shrimp or artificial to be able to capitalize more constantly. Offshore, look for the kingfish to move from north to south for their fall migration. As the water temps drop, start on artificial reefs and along the beaches trolling stinger rigs with green backs, ladyfish and threadfins; but lures and spoons can also work great.
