The pelagics (migratory fish) are on the move in the Gulf of Mexico.

Over the last month or so we’ve seen several different species of fishes on their semi-annual migration. Some of the most sought after game fish in the world, i.e. Snook, Tarpon and Cobia, are being caught just off the Citrus County and Levy County Coasts. As well as the pelagics, several of our resident populations are alive and well, just waiting for the chance to inhale a bait.

Recently the Speckled Trout and Redfish bite has improved, as well as the Spanish Mackerel and Blues. Best bet for this time of year is the Grass Flats, about 5 miles north of the Withalacoochee River. Lots of Sea Trout in the Flats, and plenty of Reds in closer.

Tarpon Tip:

When fishing the Grass Flats for Trout, drag an entire Mullett around on an unattended line behind the boat. Use heavy line/leader with a 7 to 10/0 circle hook, and a small float (just enough to keep the bait up out of the grass). Great way to get yourself a ‘Silver King’.

Until next time…see you on the Gulf!
Good Luck
