Its Tarpon time again! Anglers fishing with me this past week had several shots at tarpon that are migrating our coastal beaches. Most bites came from floating live blue crabs and pinfish in the lanes that tarpon were moving in.
Fly anglers also had several shots in shallow water along the beaches with lack of sun being the factor most days as this greatly decreases seeing fish without having to make a rushed cast.
Bay fishing is still good on the deeper flats for trout, mackerel, ladyfish, etc. using DOA CAL shad tail swim baits.
Look for the tarpon bite to only get better as sub-tropical storm Alberto moves away and our beach waters settle down.
