dseem to be bringing in a couple different types of fish to the holes.
Bonnet sharks and a few larger sharks hanging out in the deeper warmer water.
I think the sharks came up right before the cooler weather and use the holes for more comfortable water temps.
Watch for a few Tarpon out here, if the waters warms 4 degrees there will be a lot more, We had several reports
of Tarpon here before the chilly weather

Fishin Frank & Robert   03/29/17-------- maybe a Tarpon or two, And the School of Balck drum

like Black tip or black nose, But there are quite a few Big lemon sharks.
Tarpon have moved into the holes there is good Tarpon fishing here. and watch for bird activity
as that is a good sign of 10 to 50 pound King mackerel.
Yes the king you always wanted to ctach 30 pound ish are right here in the harbor

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--03/22/15------Sharks, Cobia, Cat-fish, and Lady fish
not great fishing but worth a shot at a Shark dinner

so a good ambush bet

the Gag grouper should be thick in the holes any day spawning

Fishin Frank & Robert   03/24/16---- Spanish and Tarpon along with some Cobia
The Cobia are over the holes as they move north or south,
what I would do is if you have time try trolling a 15' depth running Rapala, I think I would use the mackerel
color let it out until it bumps bottom then bring it in 1 crank.

quite a few Tarpon they seem to visit this hole while the 20 foot hole has more regular

Jacks . If you see Tarpon rolling go deep with the baits,

Fishin Frank 05/09/15 ----- the Mackerel have moved back into the Harbor
and to find them cast spoons or jig through the bait schools.
But I would let them sink a bit first cat see the splash then count to four and start reeling

Fishin Frank & Robert   05/09/16-----There is so much fish out here,
Tarpon, Sharks even Grouper then the Lady fish and Spanish just a lot of different fish
BIg news the Black Drum are back, huge schools of them feeding or breeding
out in the holes right now.

Fishin Frank & Robert   05/17/16----- I wish it was all good news like the school of monster black drum
which in fact is at least 3 schools working the Harbor, but the truth is we had a lot of cat-fish move
into the holes in the last few days, and I think that is why the Tarpon and the Sharks are starting

to head back into the holes.
all in all greta fishing through out the open Harbor for mackerel, Lady fish, pompano along the bars
Tarpon , jacks , sharks, you get the idea

 

June

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/17/17-------- Cat fish, Some schools of Bait and the Tarpon are
just starting to find their way here.
Big Sharks down in the Pirate Harbor hole. up to the middle hole
Nurse sharks up to 10 foot are in the holes.

Jacks , Blue fish, Cat fish, Thread fins. the farther south you are now the better. watch for glass minnow

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/08/15------Silver Trout and a bunch of sharks
small sharks ot big ones, Cat-fish, Cobia, Tarpon all are out here, fish for one
and you are fishing for all of them

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/15/15------A few Tarpon not steady or even enough to fish
for , but enough to keep an eye out when passing by,
The sharks small to big are here, but not great numbers as the Tarpon get thicker out by the passes
so the sharks move that way.
Spanish mackerel are following the tides in and then out, the mackerel are some what larger

then a month ago, makes sense right?

 

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/24/15------Tarpon check the Tarpon map,
There is quite a few sharks here as well as the Tarpon and lots of monster cat fish.
The lady fish and Spanish are here as well, some nice schools of Thread fins, for bait
the bait is moving from the 41 bridges all the way down to cape haze so you do have to look.
income tides I would check the bridges and then look down the middle east side of the Harbor.
On the out going tides I would check close to burnt store and two pines

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/09/16----- Tarpon and Sharks, a bunch yes lot of Cobia
not a lot of keeper size Cobia, but there is still, quite a few Larger cobia.
and just a ton of small sharks.

the Cat=fish. But yes all are back herein the holes.
Capt. Karl caught 2 Cobia by drifting the middle hole with live thread fins, free lined out from the boat.

trolling a 15 foot diving lure and a larger spoon is producing good results. Bottom fishing these holes
is not very productive at all, drift or troll. un-less you just want to relax and not be bothered by those
pesky fish.

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/20/16-----Tarpon are steady here, The Rapala Sub walk rules the
lures for Tarpon With teh DOA bait buster a close 2nd.
Dead bait or live working
SORRY but tons of cat fish out here in the holes, but the tails make great bait for sharks or Tarpon

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/27/16----- Tarpon moving in good and lots of cat fish
The Sharks have come back up the habor and are in the holes. I guess following the Tarpon

Fishin Frank & Robert   04/06/16---- catch the wind, Spanish mackerel and Sharks
along with some Tarpon and Cobia.
The Tarpon are here but you need to work for them.

Fishin Frank & Robert   04/16/16----the holes have Tarpon, Cobia, Cat-fish, and a bunch of Sharks
 

Fishin Frank & Robert   04/29/16---- Tarpon Cobia and tons of Sharks
Lots of Silver Trout and Spanish mackerel.
Cow nose rays and Thread fins are what is bringing in the huge amounts of fish

 

May-5

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--05/25/15------ Tarpon are scatted all over crabs and Thread fins
Still are a lot of Sharks, the sharks are in bunches.

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--05/15/15------ Shark tarpon Cobia, lot os cat fish and some
Jacks . If you see Tarpon rolling go deep with the baits,

Fishin Frank 05/09/15 ----- the Mackerel have moved back into the Harbor
and to find them cast spoons or jig through the bait schools.
But I would let them sink a bit first cat see the splash then count to four and start reeling

Fishin Frank & Robert   05/09/16-----There is so much fish out here,
Tarpon, Sharks even Grouper then the Lady fish and Spanish just a lot of different fish
BIg news the Black Drum are back, huge schools of them feeding or breeding
out in the holes right now.

Fishin Frank & Robert   05/17/16----- I wish it was all good news like the school of monster black drum
which in fact is at least 3 schools working the Harbor, but the truth is we had a lot of cat-fish move
into the holes in the last few days, and I think that is why the Tarpon and the Sharks are starting

to head back into the holes.
all in all greta fishing through out the open Harbor for mackerel, Lady fish, pompano along the bars
Tarpon , jacks , sharks, you get the idea

 

June

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/02/15------ Lots of sharks, Tarpon fishing here is scattered
not real good but over by cape haze the Tarpon are more steady. the holes have a few tarpoon
but better to be lucky than good.
Jacks , Blue fish, Cat fish, Thread fins. the farther south you are now the better. watch for glass minnow

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/08/15------Silver Trout and a bunch of sharks
small sharks ot big ones, Cat-fish, Cobia, Tarpon all are out here, fish for one
and you are fishing for all of them

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/15/15------A few Tarpon not steady or even enough to fish
for , but enough to keep an eye out when passing by,
The sharks small to big are here, but not great numbers as the Tarpon get thicker out by the passes
so the sharks move that way.
Spanish mackerel are following the tides in and then out, the mackerel are some what larger

then a month ago, makes sense right?

 

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--06/24/15------Tarpon check the Tarpon map,
There is quite a few sharks here as well as the Tarpon and lots of monster cat fish.
The lady fish and Spanish are here as well, some nice schools of Thread fins, for bait
the bait is moving from the 41 bridges all the way down to cape haze so you do have to look.
income tides I would check the bridges and then look down the middle east side of the Harbor.
On the out going tides I would check close to burnt store and two pines

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/09/16----- Tarpon and Sharks, a bunch yes lot of Cobia
not a lot of keeper size Cobia, but there is still, quite a few Larger cobia.
and just a ton of small sharks.

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/13/16---- Sharks and Cobia, and Tarpon, I wont mention
the Cat=fish. But yes all are back herein the holes.
Capt. Karl caught 2 Cobia by drifting the middle hole with live thread fins, free lined out from the boat.

trolling a 15 foot diving lure and a larger spoon is producing good results. Bottom fishing these holes
is not very productive at all, drift or troll. un-less you just want to relax and not be bothered by those
pesky fish.

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/20/16-----Tarpon are steady here, The Rapala Sub walk rules the
lures for Tarpon With teh DOA bait buster a close 2nd.
Dead bait or live working
SORRY but tons of cat fish out here in the holes, but the tails make great bait for sharks or Tarpon

Fishin Frank & Robert   06/27/16----- Tarpon moving in good and lots of cat fish
The Sharks have come back up the habor and are in the holes. I guess following the Tarpon


 

July
Fishin Frank & Robert's report--07/28/15------ Tarpon and as many Cat-Fish as you want
the sharks and Silver Trout are thick as well, But there is plenty of Tarpon to keep you casting

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--07/15/15------ Tarpon are the big thing but the
Most fish here would be cat fish, so chunk up one of the cats and try to catch your Tarpon
A good by catch to the Tarpon is the sharks, Yes big or small the holes have them all/.

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--07/06/15-----Tarpon and tons of cat fish
and a lot of sharks, Cobia are steady here. but not many keeper size

August
Fishin Frank & Robert   08/24/15------Tarpon all over and yes there is Sharks, and when these two
are there so are the cat fish
 

Fishin Frank & Robert   08/12/15------ Lots of cat-fish. The Tarpon are doing well

Cat-fish , lady fish, or cut mullet, for Lures the bait buster or storm swim bait
I am excitteds to try the new Savage swim lures

 

September
Fishin Frank & Robert   09/15/15------ Tarpon still here and quite a few cat fish
But there is still time for that 100 pound plus Tarpon to end the season with

Fishin Frank & Robert   09/07/15------Tarpon and a lot of them, bobber jigging is the key

October
 

Fishin Frank & Robert   10/27/15----- Bonnet Sharks on the bottom,,
For you Tarpon people, watch for lady fish, there is plenty of Tarpon still here
But they are following the lady fish,

Fishin Frank & Robert   10/03/15------ The Tarpon are in and out of the holes
worth a look if the wind dies down a bit.

Fishin Frank & Robert   10/09/15------Tarpon look for the Birds, and watch close for Lady fish
that is what every thing is near to. Slow drift or trolling will catch you some Nice fish

Fishin Frank & Robert   10/19/15----- Gag grouper, and schools of Lady fish and Spanish

November

Fishin Frank & Robert   11/23/15----- Lady fish and Mackerel both here, Good chance for your Tarpon
and a Cobia out here in the holes

Fishin Frank & Robert   11/13/15----- Spanish and Sharks, The Cobia are out here as well
I think more Cobia would be found near Burnt store or Cape haze but they travel so much
it is still a good bet for Cobia.

Fishin Frank & Robert   11/30/15----- Spanish mackerel Cobia and Sharks all
still doing well here,
Big news is the Tarpon are holding in here the Savage Trout lure is kickin Tarpon butt
but we are almost out of stock, I am Praying the get in before the next cold spell hit
as that may move the Tarpon South

December

Fishin Frank & Robert's report--12/30/14------- Cobia and some Sharp nose
and Bonnet sharks
