With the last 10 days of rain and wind with a low-pressure that built in the Southeast part of eastern U.S. has kept most charter boats off the water. By the weekend things are going to get back to afternoon showers and thunderstorms which should get fishing back to normal with tarpon moving back into the nearshore beaches. The snook will be more in the passes and backwaters and redfish will be on spoil islands, mangroves, shorelines and oyster bars. The bait of choice will still be scaled sardines, pinfish, grunts and chunked ladyfish as well as cut threadfin herring. So now is the time to book that charter and enjoy the Clearwater Fl fishing area.
