Pine Island Sound - Ding Darling Refuge & Eastern Charlotte Harbor

Tip of the week 

Tarpon will be cruising the beaches in the morning on the incoming tide and then settling into the passes and sounds for the afternoon crab flush.

Seven-day forecast 

Typical summer weather with land breezes giving way to a sea breeze in the afternoons. Watch for those afternoon thunderstorms


With a full moon mid-week the afternoon outgoing tides will provide lots of moving water and a crab feast for the tarpon. Water temps will be in the mid to high 80s.
