  • Tarpon Springs Fishing Report - FL

    Absolute Florida Flats Fishing, a fishing guide service serving the West Central FL. Gulf Coast area of Tarpon springs, Clearwater and New Port Richey reports the inshore/ nearshore fall fishing season is finally here. With our 1st baby cool front that stalled just to the north of Hernando county, the day light hours are shortening daily. It won’t be long before they start falling down through our region telling the fish to FEED!!! Cooling water temperatures and air temperatures make it the most comfortable fishing of the year, the migration of the (baitfish) pilchard’s small to full blown size returning to all the beach’s and flats, the fishing is going to take off with all the predator species on hand. Snook season is opened for fish measuring 28” to 33” !, the Red-fish spawn is on and happening right now in the shallow fishing flats. The season change will trigger many changes in our fishery, the barometric change along with cooler water will begin the annual migration of the big Spotted Sea Trout, not to mention all the nearshore species that will be headed back to their winter haunts. Cobia, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Bonita and more. We will start our day by catching (cast netting) a live-well full of the bait of choice (pilchards), and depending on the targeted fish inshore and nearshore we will fish from deep stained waters of the nearby river’s and estuary system’s, the area flat’s, barrier islands, sounds and bays to the beach’s and nearshore rock piles and artificial reefs for Grouper and snapper till we get-r-done! grouper are in 8′-15′ of water in our pristine shallow water reefs and our hard rocky bottom. During this time of the season all the predator game fish have the feed bag on looking to store fat for the upcoming winter, all on light tackle spinning equipment, pilchard’s are their favorite food this time of year due to its high protein and good fat, and we will have a bait well full of them, live bait chumming is very effective to creating a feeding frenzy for non-stop aggressive fish catching ! We have already had a taste of a 1st cool down, and our days are shortening in length lowering the water temperature. This fishing should remain with us through December. This is a special time of year for fishing (MY FAVORITE TIME) with your family, friends and buddy’s, business acquaintance, good company from out of town on a visit to our beautiful State.
