Inshore & Nearshore

The Catch

Permit have been hanging out on our nearshore wrecks.  These fish are commonly spotted when they come up to the surface to feed.  My client Chris hooked up on his first during a nearshore trip out of Boca Grande.  He fed it a live blue crab.  Tarpon are still schooling in passes and along our beaches.  They seem content this year and should hang around though the first few weeks of July before they really start to thin out.

Inshore the snook bite has been great,  Andrew of the youtube channel “Noob Angler”  hooked up to some nice snook during his inshore trip.  We tagged ALL our snook for Grey Fishtag Research.  These tags are lightweight and designed for inshore species.  When a tagged fish is recaptured the angler can report it online or via the phone number on the tag.  If you catch a tagged fish, its great if you can get a measurement and remember the location caught.  Handle with care if you intend to release the catch to continue its journey.  It will be interesting to see how these fish grow and where these fish end up.  Be on the look out for them if you fish Boca Grande/ Charlotte Harbor/ Englewood area!
