Boca Grande fishing charter report – April 18

We had an inshore fishing charter today. We fished around Gasparilla Sound, Bull Bay, and Turtle Bay. Once the tide started flowing this morning, it was almost nonstop action. Blake and his family caught at least 30-40 snook and probably 20 trout, almost all over slot. We are using 30lb fluorocarbon, 4/0 circle hook, small cork and a live white bait. The most productive areas were those with good moving current.

The tarpon are moving into Boca Grande Pass more and more everyday. We’re seeing them along the grass flats and bars as well. Give us a call if you’d like to go on a Boca Grande tarpon fishing charter.

Boca Grande goliath grouper charters are also a thrill. Where else can you catch a fish bigger than you then hop in the water for a photo op?!
