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.

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.

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.
