Long-time Tarpon Springs fishing guide Captain John Fischbach of Absolute Florida Flats Fishing reports a prediction of an early Tarpon Migration by the Abundant signs, sightings and catches of Cobia also known as ling along with juvenile Tarpon starting to pop up on the outside of their winter haunts. Tarpon Springs Fishing Charters and New Port Richey gulf coast inshore flats fishing on The West Central Florida Gulf Coast with a top notch Charter Captain based on the Anclote River in Tarpon Springs Florida attracts Anglers from far and wide serving Pasco county, Pinellas county, Hillsborough county and Hernando county. High yields and high-quality catches of Snook have been taken on three quarter snook fishing charters and full day charters although half-day charters get the job done. Your best bet is to book a six-hour trip giving you 6 to 7 hours dock to dock with at least six hours of fishing time allowing one hour for travel time to and from where the fertile areas where the Snook and Redfish are congregated around the river mouth of the Pithlachascotee River and Anclote River in mass numbers where I take my clients to intercept them as they make their way to the barrier islands where the spawning process takes place. Now is the time to book your West central Pasco Snook catching charter if you would like to bring home a delicious snook! the summer closure on the common snook, in our area begins SOON!!!!! Spotted sea trout are available at every feeding station at certain tide stages and moon phases. The old mighty pilchard used on my live bait flats fishing trips are here to stay and are readily available to me as I am running charters on a daily basis. The migratory bait is accompanied by the threadfin herring, one of the top 5 live baits for Tarpon.
