Fall 2019 Tarpon Springs Redfish Report


Targeting Redfish 

As the days get shorter look for redfish to start schooling up , fish will usually be eating cut bait best while the water temperatures are in the 80's. Fish mangrove lines on the higher tides and docks or channel edges on the lower water.  

Targeting Flounder

Flounder fishing will get hot in the next month or so, fish the deeper cuts and potholes using light leader (20lb Bullbuster leader) and jigheads 1/8oz upto 1/2oz. Slowly drift while bouncing jigs and wait for the telltale thump of a flounder bite. Whitebait, pinfish and shrimp work great.

Targeting Snook

Snook fishing will continue to be good as they try to fatten up for winter and from coming off of post spawn, focus on river and creeks mouths. Mullet, whitebait and even ladyfish are good choices for the bigger fish. Recommend  20lb Bullbuster braid with 30-50lb Bullbuster Leader and a 3/0-5/0 circle hook, depending on the bait size and structure. 

Targeting  Cobia

Fall is prime time for the annual Cobia migration. Look for the Cobia to start showing up on inshore flats, nearshore structure and following stingrays. Chumming can be the best way to find cobia, chum blocks or cut up bait in the water will attract curious cobia. If it doesn't attract the cobia themselves it'll bring in sharks or stingrays both of which cobia follow around for an easy meal. Big pinfish, blue Crabs and buck tail jigs are great choices. Bullbuster 50lb braid wil 50-80lb Bullbuster leader for the bigger fish.
