Spring time fishing is turning on Spanish Mackerel are showing up around Boca Grande. The big kings will be off our Gulf Beaches anytime. Barracuda, cobia and more will migrate into local waters soon. Weather is back and forth with windy fronts but some nice days in between. we fish outside if it’s calm or inside protected waters if it’s blowing.
Trout are scattered through Charlotte Harbor, but improving. We had a pompano yesterday and saw a few more. snook and redfish are both closed this year. we should have some catch and release fishing if you just want the fun.
Tarpon will be here before you know it. They should be early if waters continue to warm up. Sharks are already moving in also. We had a beautiful hammerhead in our chum slick last week.
If you’re coming over spring break please get your reservations ASAP. Please check out Captain Van Hubbard on Facebook and our five star ratings on trip adviser! Thank you, will be trying to a new report every week. Captain Van
