Cooler water temperatures here in Clearwater have turned many target species on! Good numbers of Grouper and Hogfish have been hitting on the nearshore reefs. The Kingfish are still around and will be most likely for another couple of weeks. As it gets farther into our winter fishing season, we expect this trend to continue. As for now the deep sea bottom Fishing in Clearwater is red hot, call me to book a charter!
With the summer heat in full swing the fishing has been better deeper. We have been fishing the shorter trips earlier than normal to take advantage of cooler conditions. The deep sea charters have been producing nice Grouper, Snapper and more throughout the entire day due to cooler water temps farther offshore.
Here’s a couple on Cobia caught during a full day fishing charter out of Clearwater Beach Florida!
