March 2021 Fishing Report

Englewood & Boca Grande Monthly Fishing Updates

March 1st, 2021 | Capt. Cameron Schurlknight

Spring is just around the corner and I’m looking forward to some of the best fishing of the year. Cold winters like we’ve had produce some of the best spring fishing! Lately, we’ve been fishing nearshore on the ledges and having a great bite with sheepshead, snapper and triple tail mixed in. Lots of great table fare and action. This bite should last into about the first 10 days of March.

Looking forward, the baitfish will be returning to the flats shortly and the snook redfish and trout will be eager to eat after this cold winter. March and April will produce great flats fishing.

Tarpon season is right after that. I start fishing for the Silver King in April. If you want to catch one this year give me a call soon! I still have some good tide dates available in April - July. That is the peak spring season for the tarpon as they move into our area. More adult tarpon mass here than any other place in the world. My favorite fish to target by far!

I look forward to seeing everyone this spring and summer!
