Submitted by Phlats Guide ServicesSubmitted on 02/09/2014
Seasonably warm, we can all agree it feels great and would not trade places with any northerner. This weeks past warm spell, has put a spark in everybody. Mother nature sure has blessed us with the spectacular weather.
Tarpon fishing has been great in the ICW and inside the local inlets. The bigger tarpon are grouped up hanging near deep channel edges and drop offs. These tarpon are ranging in size from 50 to 100 pounds, they are picky at times best bet, fish the out going tides using live baits or jigs worked along the bottom for best results. The smaller tarpon are in the back bays and canals taking plugs , jigs and live baits worked in there vicinity. The tarpon can be seen near the surface allowing anglers to pin point were the bait should be presented.
Snook fishing is on fire do to bait schools and strong tidal flow. Schools of snook can be found in potholes and around sand flats. Artificial lures and live baits will get your drag screaming. Be sure to stay quite when fishing shallow, snook spoke easily. Docks and sea walls allow anglers to sight fish snook, using doa cal and doa shrimp in glow and gold glitter and Arkansas glow. The snook are actively taking top water plugs in the shallow, last of outgoing tide working plug slowly near structure and pot holes for best results.
