Well it is nearing the end of April and our busy season is still in full swing. We've still been having some late cold fronts and actually are experiencing the remenants of one the last couple of days. The last couple nights temperatures have dipped into the mid 60s providing for very nice evenings, though the water temperature dipped a bit today in the bay and got down into the mid 70s which shook things up a bit with the tarpon fishing. Yesterday fishing was great for them Capt. Bill Bassett had good tarpon action both in the morning and then again in the afternoon on a full day trip releasing several fish. Capt. Chris Daly and Capt. Rick Stanczyk both released multiple tarpon in the morning on half day trips. Capt. Mike Venezia has had some tarpon action on his trips as of late as well as Capt. Ben Ekblom and Capt. John Johansen. Today Capt. Rick Stanczyk reported a nice tarpon in the morning and then fishing had slowed down but this afternoon he had a good rally and landed a couple more tarpon around the bridges plus some snappers for dinner. They also caught two nice size groupers including a red and black grouper. Capt. Sid Bryant landed a nice big tarpon this afternoon as well. Capt. Clyde Upchurch had an excellent day fishing in the everglades and reported multiple snook and redfish too. Looks like the next few nights will be a little chillier but warming up and hopefully by the weekend we should be back to the normal mid 80s by day and high 70s at night. I don't think the water should cool much more and hopefully the tarpon will pick right back up to normal, this may turn out to be a good thing for the overall season again as it may keep too many fish from firing up and getting caught too early, leaving more for later in May and June!
