Fishing the tidal creeks in winter.

Fishing the tidal creeks of the Caloosahatchie river.

I like to change tactics in the winter and do some fishing the tidal creeks in winter. I like to change my approach to fishing for snook. As most seasoned fisherman know snook are highly migratory.In the sense that they will move from creeks and backcountry haunts in the spring. To the passes and inlets of the Florida coasts.As winter sets in they reverse their travels to tidal creeks and rivers. And also the canal systems all over central and south Florida.

The key is finding deeper water. That the water temp is at a minium of 60 degrees or higher. At 60 degrees snook tend not to feed as much as in higher water temps. Most of the feeder creeks that come into the river. Are deeper at around 10 to 12ft.

On warm days I like to throw top water minnow imitation such as the Rapala. In the black and gold color. If that gets no responce I switch to bucktail jigs.And lures such as the Snook slayer or the Ultra bucktail. I work the jigs slow at first to see what the fish are looking for.I like the darker colors such as black head with a brown body or a blue body.Dont discount the fact you just might get a bass or two in the mix.

So you don’t have to stop fishing for snook in the winter. You just have to change tactics.Fishing the tidal creeks in winter can pay off in big ways.Thanks and I hope this helps you catch more and bigger fish.

Pine Island Sound Fishing

Fishing the flats

We went down to Pine Island Sound Fishing for some snook,reds,and seatrout. It took some time to secure some of the right kind of bait. We looking for greenbacks but it was a slow tide. And it took a while for the tide to start moving so after we got some bait. We we’re fishing with a red and white popping corks rigged with a live bait hook.

After securing some good bait we headed south for some fishing around the islands around the bomb holes. If you didn’t know during WW2 the gov’t used this area for a practice bombing area. So there are a lot of deep hole out there that get full of mangrove snappers and others during the warmer weather.

Jose’s redfish

We moved into the flats and began chasing some snook and redfish. After catching a couple of small snook. Jose caught a nice little snook. After a few minutes went by Jose hooked into a 26 3/4″ redfish.That red took him around the boat twice.

Jose connected with a snook of 4 or 5 lbs. Then we managed to catch some small snook and the bite finished. So that’s about it for this trip. If you would like to see more posts like these logon to www.countryboystacklebox.com

We tried some fishing for seatrout with CBTB popping corks. We rigged one with live bait and one with a Scorpion jig. We managed to catch only a few small undersized trout. The trout just didn’t want to co-operate. The Pine Island Sound fishing has been good through out the years.

So get to Pine Island and do some fishing. And remember please pick up your trash. Florida is being loved to death it has it’s natural beauty but is being changed rapidly. So we can all do our part to keep our waterways clean.

Saltwater Fishing with CBTB

Pine Island Sound has been a dependable spot

We will be going down to Pine Island to do some Saltwater Fishing with CBTB products. And shoot some video of this trip. We will be chasing after some Snook,redfish,seatrout,and whatever else that will bite.

I will be trying Country Boys Tackle Box popping corks for some seatrout,redfish,and snook. Because the popping corks work good for all these species. Just tie some 30lb mono leader and a 1/0 or a 2/0 livebait hook and start fishing. I like to use greenbacks for bait. But you can use shrimp,pinfish,or others.

CBTB popping cork

Now I don’t have an expensive flats boat. I fish out of a Alumacraft 16.5ft aluminum john boat with a 25hp Mercury outboard on it. I just watch the weather. That being said I have done a lot of work to the boat. Such as adding a floor. A livewell(a must for saltwater fishing) to hold all the bait. And a trolling motor.

For those of you who may not know anything about Pine Island let me tell you about it. Pine Island is a 16 miles long and a few miles wide located in SW Florida. It is relatively un developed because the vast maority of it is wildlife refuge both state and federal. Which means limited development.

The SW Florida region has had it’s share of problems in the past with red tide. Our new Governor has started to get the ball rolling on some new plans. The everglades and the outflow of freshwater from Lake Okeechobee are starting to be addressed. Any help with letter writing and so on to our Congressmen would help the situtation here. I don’t usually write any political stuff here but I feel this is important.

So if you can get to the SW Florida region by all means do so.

Bass fishing in Lake Ariana.

Fishing for bass in Lake Ariana

My friend Jose Lopez  and I went to do some fishing for bass in Lake Ariana  yesterday. We fished for some bass. The day started out slow due to a big moon. After fishing till noon with only one fish of about 1.5lbs. We went to the East side of the lake. 20160426_180606_resized [233417]@Country boys fishing in the near future for fishing videos

The frog bite never materialized. So we switched over to a Zoom 7″ Junebug trick worm rigged Texas style. After I caught one about 2lbs Jose caught a 21″ 4lber. I guess the fish turned on and we caught two more about 2lbs then it slowed down.

We moved up the bank and didn’t do much. So after some refreshments we went back to the spot and I caught a 21″ 4lb bass also. Then I caught two more 2lb fish and that did it for us.Stay tuned for more fishing trips and check out the video on you tube .

Lake Ariana bass

Because I used to live in Auburndale,Fl. this lake has been one of my favorite lakes to fish. It’s not a huge lake by any means but it has a good bass population. The water level has risen in the past years to a good level.

I typically use a C-tail plastic worm or a Scorpion Swim jig. Frogs are also a good choice. Just work them thru the grass or over the eel grass beds very effective. The lake has a good amount of deep holes in it which makes for good summer time fishing. In the summer it gets pretty hot down here so deep holes help.

So try to find these smaller sleeper lakes as I call them. It will help you find more and bigger fish.
