No red tide and great fishing

Posted November 11, 2018

With all the negative National media and social media on red tide we still have not had any measurable amounts from Clearwater to Tarpon Springs . Yes the red tide is still patchy in areas, but with the cold front that just came in, and the next two cold fronts over the next 4 days, the red tide should break up and be gone due to cooling water temperatures and rough waters that disperse and will eliminate the red tide. Water temps have dropped from 86 to 76 degrees. Fish are on the move and the chew redfish are in good numbers. Cut Ladyfish can’t be turned down by these bruisers of the flats. Other baits such as Pinfish and Scaled Sardines will get the job done but don’t be surprised to catch Snoock and Trout in the same areas. So start to book your trip, whether you are a pro or a novice on fly, spin, or artificial. There are many different species to target right now off the Clearwater beaches and back water flats. Spanish Mackerel are all over the beach feeding on bait. Soon their big brothers, the King Mackerel, will show up. A well full of scaled sardines and threadfin herring will put the Spanish Mackerel into a Feeding Frenzy – make sure you have plenty of line because that big smoker Kingfish will eat these baits just as well. To target Kingfish, live shad, big threadfin herring, ladyfish and mullet as well as blue runners are the main baits for these 35mph speedsters. Now’s the time to book that trip of a lifetime
