Pine Island Sound - Ding Darling Refuge & Eastern Charlotte Harbor

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Watch for pods of tarpon moving up and down the beach. If the action is slow move your attention to the Sounds.

Seven-day forecast 

Chance of showers mid-week. Onshore winds could make for tough beach fishing. But there are tarpon moving throughout Pine Island and Gasparilla sounds. Water temps are in the mid eighties, watch for rolling fish, they'll be gulping air in this heat.

Conditions 

The tarpon are cruising the beaches with steady action other than slack tide. No big wind or heavy rain is forecasted so the fishing should remain good. There are a few big snook in the troughs and on the bars just off the breakers.
