Fishing around government cut and the beaches has been excellent and there’s just about tarpon everywhere. Most typefaces you can find Tarpon and with the moon phase coming up it allows us an opportunity to do combination trips of casting artificial’s and drifting crabs on the beach. Most of the tarpon have been large migratory fish in the hundred pound class range. Around the dock lights and bridges there has been some smaller fish Mixtown in the 60 pound range but not many most of our largest fish of the season so far have been caught on attificials and inside the bay.
Some mullet are still around from the spring small migration/run and we needed some on our last trip proved to be the ticket as well as live crab.
The artificials of choice have been the trusty bait fish hogy paddle tails.
As we move into summer I’ll probably expect to shift over to the inlets and target a little bit more snook. However last Year the fishing was better on the dock lights then the bridges for large snook.
Looking forward to the next several months it should be great As fish move up and down the coast coming out of the keys to the fishing shit just get better and better.
