As with any type of fishing southwest Florida is seasonal. Spring is the prime time for fishing the flats. When things start to warm up redfish and large trout come up on the flats in droves for one reason. To feast! As southwest Florida approaches summer we find more snook and the occasional tarpon. In summer all species are available but the Silver King takes most of our attention along with big snook that roam the beach. The fall mullet run signals another feeding frenzy on the flats for all species. Winter means searching deeper water and superb or great shallow water sight fishing on selected days.
