Pine Island Sound - Ding Darling Refuge & Eastern Charlotte Harbor

Tip of the week 

Early morning departures are less important now. Reds and snook are moving into the creeks. Trout are on the grass. Floating lines and weighted flies are getting just deep enough for consistent bites.

Seven-day forecast 

The mangroves are waking up and the trout are moving back on the grass flats as the water cools.


Cooler days and cooler water are here finally. Once we get this rain behind us the fishing will improve
