Charlotte Harbor Fishing Report
Obsession Sportfishing Charters Fishing Report Wed, March 26th, 2014
Light tackle and fly fishing is great this time of year throughout Charlotte Harbor. Snook, Redfish and Trout are active and in their usual haunts. Snook can be found on sand near mangroves try light colored soft plastic lures and white flies with a bit of flash. Redfish are up in the shallows and around oyster beds. The old standby copper spoon and dark colored sinking flies are producing well. Trout are on the grass flats usually near an edge or deep hole. Use top water lures and flies for some real fun. Spanish Mackerel are spread out in the lower Harbor along the transitions from flats to deeper water. They love flashy lures and flies but you have to move them fast. Cobia and tarpon are spotty right now but that will change as the bait continues to move into Pine Island and Gasparilla Sounds.

Pesky cold fronts have made the fishing a bit challenging. Water temps are dropping 8-12* when the fronts come through. Cooler water means adjustments. Deep holes and slower retrieves do the trick. As the temps rebound the fish become more aggressive and move out of the holes. There’s been some big redfish around and the trout are very cooperative. I didn’t have a good week with the snook but that will change. The beaches have been quiet with just a few ladyfish and Spanish around. I am hearing stories of tarpon sightings as they start dropping out of the backcountry, won’t be long now!
