With our recent hot temperatures and water temps hovering mid to high 90* in the Gulf and high 90’s in the backwaters, aka the flats of Clearwater, you’d think fishing would be slow. But on the contrary, fishing been pretty good!
Snook fishing has been ok.  Fish have been 30″ to pushing 40″ in the flats of clearwater sound to the ICW of Indian Rocks narrows.  Snook have not been interested in chasing live bait unless we have had some rain,the water temps cool, and makes them more aggressive so cut threadfins or chunk of ladyfish been working well.
Redfishing has been the most consistent with 25-31 inches being the norm. The middle of both tides has produced the most results. These Reds have been hanging on oyster bars and drop offs with good water flow. Dead bait has been the ticket, due to the hot water.
Sharks have started to spawn on the flat through our the backwaters that make for some great action.
So forget about the heat, and let’s get out and do some serious summer fishing!!!
