Had a busy second week fishing both the bay and Clearwater harbor area. Fishing was good with Redfish, Trout, Snook and Triple tail being caught. Early in the week I fished out of Safety harbor and we fished for snook and trout. Did good on both, middle of the week I fished for triple tail out of Dunedin Marina, and we started the day by running south along the stone crab traps looking for Triple tail. We ran down from Clearwater beach to sandy key, and made our way down to Johns pass and St.pete beach where we caught a 6 triple tail with 2 shorts, 2 just legal, and 2 jumbos. I finished off the week fishing back over in Dunedin Clearwater area catch trout and a few redfish.

These structures provide fish much-needed shade, good ambush points with current dynamics and lots of forage species. More or less an emergent reef, a bridge gives anglers a clear target to fish and the ability to move up or down a few pilings to locate the bite. Common targets include tarpon, cobia, pompano, snapper, grouper, sheepshead, redfish, black drum, speckled trout and snook. Spanish mackerel and bluefish make seasonal appearances, and ladyfish are always a possibility.
• On the Space Coast, sheepshead are feeding inside Port Canaveral near structure as well as residential canals in both the Indian and Banana Rivers. Live shrimp, fiddler crabs, or cut clams, have all worked well. A few nice black drum up to 19 inches have been caught on fresh cut ladyfish or mullet fished along channel drop-off’s throughout the Haulover and Barge Canals, and the Thousand Islands. The black drum are most active during the first few hours of the day, reports Capt. Keith Mixon of Mixin’ Work With Play Fishing Charters. (321-212-8484).

My brother and I took a charter with Captain Greg Doherty this past Wednesday. It was the best fishing trip I have ever taken. Captain Greg had us on fish early and often. He knew exactly what the fish were going to do and when they were going to do it! It was almost surreal as he knew exactly where to be and where to put the bait. We caught so many fish that my brother and I lost track of the final number. Greg’s accomplished fishing skills are only secondary to his great personality. I’ve been on charters where the captain makes you feel uncomfortable or inadequate because you aren’t an experienced saltwater fisherman. Captain Greg demonstrated patience and a desire to actually teach rather than judge. He is a guy that truly gets a kick out of watching you catch fish and makes the trip an enjoyable experience. I had an awesome trip and hope to book another charter with Captain Greg Doherty in the future.
