May has been very productive for Longboat Key fishing, especially the Tarpon bite. We have jumped over 100 fish this past month. Let’s look for June to be just as impressive. The bite has been the best at the tide change near Bean Point. We have also been pretty successfully out at the bigger bridges in the Bay.
Inshore, the Snook bite has remained strong. Most of the fish are around the 25″ mark. We did manage to land several lager fish this past month along with lose a couple of big ones as well.
Redfish Near the Mangroves
The Redfish bite has been better on the higher part of the tide around deeper edges of mangroves. The Trout bite picked up at the the end of May. It will most likely get better into June with most fish being caught in 3′ – 4′ of spotted grass areas. June is filling up fast as school is out and summer break begins.
