The mackerel migration is red hot from Venice to Boca Grande. We are catching more than I want to clean. You can have fun with strong fish and take a mess home too. the Spanish are about two pounds each and king average about fifteen. If you want to enjoy some of our best action this is it.
There are some tarpon mixed in off Boca Grande and plenty of sharks. We have caught our first cobia and even a blackfin tuna off Venice. Bait fish schools have moved in and action will last as long as food hangs around.
Inside action is good around Englewood also; but not the red hot action like in the Gulf right now. Some nice Charlotte Harbor snook are hungry and the season is still open. Fall action is cranking; you can’t catch fish if you don’t go fishing. Let’s go fishing’ soon!
