  • Tarpon Springs Fishing Report - FL

    Tarpon Springs fishing guide, Capt. Rich Knox reports inshore flats fishing charters are producing excellent catches of a wide range of fish with the arrival of the migratory baitfish schools of green backs technically known as (pilchards). From New Port Richey to Clearwater everything imaginable seems to be chewing if they come upon your baits, Snook, Red-fish, Spotted Sea Trout, Jack-Crevalle, and now showing up on our inshore flats are the Spanish Mackerel. We are using light tackle spinning outfits spooled with 8-15 lb. Test and 25lb. Fluorocarbon leader of about 4 feet, using all 100% line to line connections finished off with a1/0 live bait hook,. The fish are in a transition mode due to rising water temperatures and can be found from the main-shoreline to well up in the estuary systems. To catch your bait you need a quality cast net, a good chum block or some better yet , home made chum made with some tropical fish food, jack mackerel, steamed rolled oats, and some menhaden oil to bring the bait to you to cast -net up a well full. Look for Pelicans and or terns working and diving into the water to find a good location to start releasing your chum to catch your bait !
