October and November as they feed with FURY!! Looking to fatten up for the winter, they are green (spunky) in their post spawn mode, wouldn't you be??? hehe.. If you hire me as your tarpon springs fishing guide for your tarpon springs fishing charter, I will take you to the quality fish. Fresh live large pilchards 3-4″ with 4-5′ of leader with a 3/0 circle hook- remember preservation and conservation for under slot size and oversize moss backs, will make any snook instantly eat when they find your bait freelined or under a cork, is how the pilchards are fished.
