Our fishing has been good when weather has allowed us out. we endured rain and hig winds several day but I made the best of it. I spent Wednesday in Orlando at the ICAST tackle convention. it was impressive lots of new gear and all the big names were in attendance. I even shook hands and spoke with our Govenor Rick Scott briefly.
There were way too many things to share the exsperience with you but it was very educational for me and I’ll have some neat new tools to share with you on our fishing trips. the most important point I’d like to share is that our fishing industry is growing and going strog right now!
We are enjoying great action trips near shore right now catching snapper, some grouper, barracda, little tunny and seeing a few permit and king mackerel. inside the snook are active and a few redfish are around also finally. trout are fine just smaller and perfict for the famly trips with the kids. Some jacks, ladyfish, flounder and all are adding excitement too.
We still have tarpon if you don’t mind looking around for them. It is not crowded and fun to poke around exploreing. Lots of manatees and dolphin for your entertainment also. Fishing is fine from Boca grande to Venice right now. Come on down and give it a try soon. Let’s go fishin’ now! Captain Van Hubbard
