We are excited about Tarpon season here in South Fl. As the weather becomes more humid, and we work each day to avoid rain showers, we all know it's Tarpon time. Although a "dry" summer season has unfolded so far, we've found a reasonable amount of good fish. On a recent trip, we took to the Everglades back country in search of the mighty "silver king" and found some in the 10-50 lb class on our first stop. We threw some live baits and soft plastics to them, and were surprised with how they took more to the artificials. In just a few moments we "jumped" four, and brought one "to the hand" after a solid fight! In typical tarpon fashion we got many acrobatic leaps, solid runs and lighting quick direction changes before she came to the hand. We have some dates left in late July, come aboard today to take advantage of this summer pattern today. Book A-Squared Charters today.

Hello A2 fans. Glad to be able to share a report, as we have been extremely busy! So thankful for the many return clients and referrals we've had this season. After a nasty winter, by Florida standards, our weather is not starting to settle. Our days are still pleasant, but our summer season is coming... We had a solid stretch with a good Redfish bite and although it has slowed, out triple tail are slowly trickling in. The picture attached is our returning client Jennifer with the first and what I suspect will be our best for a while. It tipped the scale at 12 lbs! Jennifer fought this fish with pure excellence, and brought it boat side. We are excited for our annual Redfish spawn, when our Redfish stick to tight schools...this provides our anglers the opportunity to catch many Redfish in one stop! Book with us today, and hook into a great spring bite!
Spotty weather, GOOD bite.

Greetings A2 current and future clients. This month has dealt us a weather challenge, with unseasonably wet conditions, but we've worked hard to keep our ice chest with good fish in it. On a recent trip, we zipped into the Glades on our new Pathfinder and found a good Redfish bite. Sprinkled in have been Tarpon, juvenile Snook and some Trout. We've spent most of our days throwing the best popping corks in the industry- Four horsemen.. paired with 1/4 jigs and soft plastic baits. Our fishing now is good and we are anticipating our first cold fronts, and with them the migration of trophy black drum and other species. See y'all on the water. Capt A2.

A2 fans. We are excited to share we have a NEW Pathfinder 2300 Bay Boat! (See photos attached). This vessel can comfortably fish FOUR folks! Our weather has begun to change, and our favorite time of the year to be outside is QUICKLY approaching. Contact us to book your trip today! Currently, we are finding good size Redfish (Red drum) very close to home but also within a short boat ride from the ramp as well. We are looking for two major areas to target, first, are the classic mangrove shorelines and second are marked channels adjacent to grass flats. Each of these zones are hit at different tides, we prefer the mangrove scenario on a rising or the first few hours of the dropping tide. Whereas the channel scenario I prefer to do on the last three hours of a dropping tide. In either scenario, we are sticking to our tried and true soft plastic bait rig.. We prefer GULP shrimp imitation patterns in as natural a color as you can find. We are throwing these with a popping cork rig with LOTS of success! All in all, our fishing weather will only get better and we know the fishing will do the same just as soon as we begin getting our first few winter blasts! See y'all on the water!
