Clearwater Fishing in April

It is now April, and the weather has been mild this winter. The smell of orange blossoms are in the air. Do you know what that means ? KINGFISH ARE HERE !!!  That right folks, King mackerel, kings, slimeys, whatever you want to call them, they made it to town.  We troll for them, four lines out and when you do run into them, all four lines can have a fish on. Total CHAOS, it great, love chaos.  Spanish mackerels and bonitos are being caught also when trolling.

Now on the bottom fishing, grouper fishing still sucks and will probably suck until May sometime when new groupers move into the area. But the Hog fishing has been pretty good,we have been catching a few on most trips. Better catches on the 6 hr than the four hour. We have been trolling and catching our kings then go bottom fishing for the hogs and grunts and porgies. Hope to see you soon!!
