FISHING REPORT: 4/13-4/12
Hey Gulfsters and thanks again for all of the questions, pictures, and reports! The weather has been a little crazy and the wind has definitely been tough to avoid but during the calm periods the fishing has been great. April is a fantastic month to get out if you have an opportunity. There’s some great nearshore and inshore fishing going on right now. The reports this week from the Skyway Fishing pier have been awesome! Lots of grouper, mackerel, and some very active kingfishing. The guys under the Skyway on the boats are hooking multiple tarpon per trip. I expect the tarpon to really start to show up on the beaches this week. Looking back in my fishing logs, I’d say everything is about 3 weeks behind “the norm” as far as the beach goes. If you are along the beaches, I did see some cobia along St. Petersburg Beach this week two years ago, so keep an eye out for those while searching for tarpon, snook, or kingfish. I usually will have a dark, soft bait, jig ready to go in case I see a cobia. As always feel free to contact me with any questions via email email@example.com or on Instagram @snookjam.
