Tarpon are starting to show up in decent numbers off the beach. Shrimp or small mullet and croakers has been the best bait for getting their attention. In the lagoon, I’ve been catching a good amount of black drum and seatrout in some of the deeper water mangrove shores.

As we continue to get more summer-like weather patterns, expect larger amounts of bait fish to keep showing up and turn the top water bite on.
