Charlotte Harbor Fishing Report

Posted January 04, 2020

Captain Rich fishing out of Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda,FL reported excellent fishing on Charlotte Harbor this week.
There has been a good run of Trout, Spanish, Pompano and Sheepshead moving into Charlotte Harbor as our winter time fishery is now in full swing. As water temperatures continue to cool the fishing has remained very active.
The Sea Trout are starting to show up in their usual patterns and with good numbers.Most trips have been swinging over 100 fish over the rail.
Pompano have been adding a lot of excellent action on each trip as of late and they are absolutely one of my favorites to not only catch but on the grill as well. While most of our Pompano have been caught as by catch While targeting a multi species bite more fish can be caught by specifically targeting Pompano with silly jigs and pompano jigs fished with the short hop and pause method across the sand bar edges. Jeff from MO caught this world class (22”) Florida Pompano on our New Year Day Inshore Charter.
We have plenty of open dates available offering 4, 6 and 8 hour fishing charters on Charlotte Harbor during our winter and spring Florida fishing season and we invite you to check out our trip offerings here on FishAnyWhere and book your Charlotte Harbor Fishing charter today.
