Summer Fishing Fun
Fishing inshore Gasperalla Sound & Charlotte Harbor this week the trout bite has been great. Incoming tides have brought in gorgeous waters and hungry fish. Larger fish are eating small/medium pinfish under a float set out on a grassy area. The float keeps your bait out of the grass and a rattling jig head alerts the trout to fish in distress.
Nearshore and in the harbor look for schools of large jacks. They have been moving in and out with the tides. Traditionally known as a “trash” fish because they aren’t great for eating. They are a BLAST to catch and a great bait to stock up on for sharks! ( Fun fact; The tiger shark Ted caught earlier this year was caught using a jack crevalle as bait) Raygin Below caught three back to back, using a small weighted Tsunami jig and a Penn Spinfisher 2500 Reel. Cast ahead of the school and reel though them, they also cant resist a top-water lure.
