Big Tarpon Have Arrived
Fishing is great along the Nature Coast redfish, snook, cobia, and now the big bad tarpon have arrived. Tarpon are tricky fish to target one day they will be in 4-6 feet and another day 6-10 feet run and gun is the way to go i like to start off around the tri pods and work my way in as the day progress. Live finger mullet on a medium heavy rod with 40lb power-pro and a 60lb suffix leader and a 6/0 live bait hook. Or a D.O.A swimming mullet works great also a large Rapala Skitter walk top water lure for a surface strike.
Redfish are all over the place and most of the reds are in the upper slot and over up to 31 inches this week we have been using top water
lures and jerk baits the redfish are hungry and will hit just about anything you present to them just keep casting distance away so the fish dont spook.
Snook are also feeding great every day we get out we are catching 2 to 3 snook some are huge and some are smaller around 24-28 inches.The hot
lure is a white jerk bait rig weedless style with a 20lb suffix leader.
Cobia are roaming in deeper flats around channel markers, tri pods, and crab traps look for stingrays cobia will hang around them and eat up what ever the stingrays kick up all ways keep a rod ready for cobia a Berkely Gulp eel on a 1/4 oz wide gap jig head is a good way to go or a live pinfish under a cork works great to.
The fishing is on fire and there is NO oil here on the Nature Coast so give Capt. Josh a call for available dates .
