Southwest FL- Pine Island Sound - Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor

Tip of the week 

The rain has lowered the salinity and the water temp in the upper harbor. Sight fishing will be tough but there's lots of snook and reds around to blind cast to. The beaches are holding snook - big ones! Plan to cover lots of territory to find them but once you find them they will be ready to bite! There'll be great fishing all of September!

Seven-day forecast 

Delay your fishing plans for a week or so.

Hurricane Irma has messed up the fishing for a few days. Thankfully the Charlotte Harbor area was spared the more destructive part of the hurricane. Iwill be a wekk or two until normalcy returns but the fall fishing on the Harbor will be very good.
