Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters July 13th - 19th Report Wet and Windy Week ... This week has been extremely challenging to say the least, but we still were able to catch some nice fish. I had to cancel two trips this week due to rain and most of the week we saw a steady 15-20 knot of winds out of the west making some of the areas I would normally fish difficult to get too. Bait has been ...full report


Crystal River And Homosassa Fishing Report

Capt Kyle Messier

July is finally here!! Does chasing schools of HUGE Tarpon, Black Drum, and Redfish excite you? How about running and gunning from a Mackerel feeding frenzy to a Bluefish feeding frenzy? Chances are with great action like this most anglers will get extremely hot and sweaty while battling all of these options. Good news though, is that Florida’s greatest Scalloping Grounds are open for business ...full report

Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters June 29- July 4 Report Well, the fishing has been pretty hit or miss during the dog days of summer. We are still catching fish, but some days the bite is really slow. Fry/ Hatch bait has moved out to the beaches and near passes. The bait is plentiful and the fish seem to prefer it over the lager baits. I have been bouncing from Sarasota Bay to the Skyway and everywhere ...full report

HERNANDO LAKE In Hernando Fl

caseycourterier

I am new to the area, and have not had much time to fish the lake, but in the past three trips I have been killing the jumbo Bluegills and Black Crappie. I am originally from Northern Michigan so that's what we call them. I think down here they may be called Bream and Specs, I'm not sure though. On 2/15/13 I caught 12 gills the largest on was 12.5 inches long and 6.75 inches from top to bottom. ...full report


Anclote Fishing Pier

We took our kayak out on the Anclote River for some morning fishing. Bites were steady from 6:30 AM until 8:30 AM. We were landing keeper Mangrove Snappers with live shrimp on a cork. We also landed a small Flounder and 6lbs. Sheepshead using Gulp® Sand Fleas on a red jig. From 8:30AM until 10:30AM, action stopped dead, other than pinfish and other small fish stealing our bait. As we were reeling ...full report

My clients in the Venice beach area have brought news of Blacktips along the beaches. The largest one this week I have seen was 3 feet long, caught on live shrimp. Large Flounder, the biggest one 20 inches are also along the beaches. The best technique I know and heard used this week was using pieces of squid cut into strips and then threaded onto a jig head, bounced off the bottom with a lift-pause-reel, ...full report

Richie27" Snook6/30/11 Caspersons BeachThe Snook have been hitting on shrimp, Pinfish, small white jigs as well as top water baits during the mornings & throughout the afternoon. Early evening, watch near rock piles and lighted areas such as bridge bumpers where these fish have been holding. Top water baits resembling small Baitfish are the most effective for night time. For Redfish, outgoing ...full report


Pasco County Florida

Pasco County waters have been heating up, with a number of King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Trout being caught in virtually any depth of water. The tides have been strong, and so has the bite on live and artificial baits. Movement of the bait has been the key to targeting different species. Faster movements with flashy baits will produce the Kings and Spanish. Slower movement on the top ...full report
