—Yesterday, tarpon were being caught in the passes and along the beaches of Anna Maria Island, Egmont Key, and Tampa Bay. The fish have been eating best during moving tides, and will take dead or live thread fin herring or live crabs.

—Heavy tackle is the key to landing these strong and acrobatic fish, with 50 pound braid, a long 80 pound leader, and a 7/o circle hook necessary to get the job done.

—Now that the tarpon have finished spawning and the large female fish have moved back into nearshore waters, it is not uncommon to hook 100+ pounders consistently.

—Tight Lines!

—After a slow week, Anna Maria Island’s tarpon fishing has begun to heat back up again. The fish that had traveled offshore to spawn have returned, and they are HUNGRY.

—We have being fishing the beaches in the early morning with crabs and threadfin herring, then anchoring and chumming on the edges of passes and deep channels as the day progresses.

—They say there is nothing like fighting a silver king, and my clients and I have to agree. Once you fight a big tarpon and witness their acrobatic jumps, you’ll be hooked for life (no pun intended).

—Mid-May is usually tarpon time. This year has not disappointed. We have hooked up with plenty of fish on my boat this week,  and the next couple weeks look even better! Now is the time if you have ever wanted to hook a tarpon!

—Fishing the nearshore reefs has been another productive method this month.

—Large mangrove snapper, kingfish, cobia, and groupers have keep my customers scrambling!

—As the mercury keeps on climbing, fishing tarpon and nearshore reefs is a great way to beat the backwater heat and have a memorable day!

—June has been hot and sticky. We saw rain in the area most afternoons and the flotilla of boats on the water assure us summertime is in full effect! On my boat, snook and tarpon have been the main Anna Maria Island targets in June. Also being routinely caught in and around the bay and local beaches are; seatrout, mangrove snapper, grouper, mackerel and sharks.
—Snook fishing this time of the year tends to move out of the back bays and into the passes and beaches. This is an annual migration pattern that these fish follow year after year in order to breed. We have been capitalizing on their need to feed while on this journey. Whitebait and small hard-bodied lures have been baits of choice.
—There are still good numbers of tarpon moving up and down the beaches and passes. We have been catching these fish on live bait on moving tides. The trick with tarpon is being very stealthy. Getting up wind / up tide from the fish, cutting the engine and drifting and/or anchoring have been proven methods. The tarpon fishing has really heated up this last week of the month on the moon.
—One of the best things about summer time fishing, here around Anna Maria Island and Tampa Bay, is the great variety of species you can encounter in a single four hour fishing trip. Snapper,  grouper and flounder along with and mackerel and sharks can be found on many shallow rock piles and reefs.

—–The weather and the fishing this past week out of Island Discount Tackle has been nothing short of spectacular.
—–Offshore we still have kingfish. In fact I had three trips this week where we caught good numbers of kings up to twenty-five pounds. While fishing for kings we also caught spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, black tip sharks and catch-and-release grouper.
—–Inshore snook are making their run to the passes for the spawn. Lots of dark fish just out from the backcountry showed up just this past week. Redfish are still there for the taking just not in the huge schools of a couple of weeks ago. Trout will be on the deeper grass flats around the bay as we come up on this next full moon.

—–Fishing this past week out of Island Discount Tackle at Keyes Marina on Anna Maria Island has been steady with some red hot action mixed in. Speckled trout, redfish and snook have been feeding when the current has been moving .
—–Speckled trout have been the go-to fish for some fillets for the dinner table and exciting action on the flats of Tampa Bay . Many gator trout were landed this past week on my recent charters. A lively shiner rigged on a 1/0 hook with a piece of 30 lb fluorocarbon leader under a popping cork has drawn many of these snaggle toothed predators to the dinner table. Make the old school bobbers pop and gurgle and the bait flash to draw the strikes. Continue Reading…
