Default Fishing Charlotte Harbor Area

Would like to get to know and learn the area with regard to fishing for Snook, Tarpon, anything and everything that wants to stretch my line, moving to PG soon and would like to make a few fishin' buddies. If anyone in the area would like to share some information by all means let me know.

Yup Big House or Harbor Hopper are probably you're best bet when I comes to finding someone to go out fishing with. Big House really doesn't have much to do other than-eat, go fishing, and probably some bar hoppin'.

I'm sure he'll be along soon.

He still hasn't gotten any official fishing lessons from me yet but I understand he's not too bad out there on the waters. Haha

I have the boat and the gear but not always the fuel. Share the expense and we'll be good buds.
I plan on launching Monday morning with my visiting step-son. Will let you know how we do.

Thanks for the response, do you fish fresh water as well? In other words, Bass, Crappie, gills, whatever?

Foxrivman1,

I sent you a DM.

I fish pretty much, anywhere and anytime. I grew up fishing on the Genesee River, the great lakes, and the finger lakes, as well as some farmland flats. So anything that swims in fresh water - I've caught. And, I have fished all over the Chesapeake Bay.

Now I fish Port Charlotte Harbor and "The Pass" almost exclusively since my boat is docked out back, and I don't trailer it. The fishing here is different, and so you have to adjust your techniques a tad, and target the species your after a bit. But the most important thing to know is - EVERYTHING EATS SHRIMP. Once you learn that, and put your hook in the water, you'll be successful.

Are you a good story teller? Because, when you fish down here, you will see and experience things that will make you a great one. It is just awesome down here.

Messing About,
Are you down here now? DM me and let me know your whereabouts, and maybe we can go out sometime.

I have a couple people that haveta go out with me as well. BeachbumWannabe and I have missed a couple times. I gotta call him again, last time he was WORKING! What a horrible, pitiful, excuse for not going fishing when someone calls! LOL That was a first! See, you'll become a good story teller if you fish with me, and OH!!! You better out-fish me, or you'll never hear the end of that either.

Then after we are done fishing, we go to the bar, and a whole new competition begins! LOL

Had to laugh when I saw that. There was a guy named Captain Mel Berman who had a great Saturday morning fishing show on the radio and I learned a lot from him. He used to say that shrimp was the Sarah Lee of baits...."Everybody doesn't like something but nobody doesn't like Sarah Lee..."
