This week we ran several 3 hour nearshore Clearwater fishing charters specifically geared towards young anglers. No experience is required for the kids as we will help along the way. The great thing about these trips is the calm water, short ride time, large variety of fish to target and lots of light tackle action, all of which kids love. We targeted spotted sea trout on the grass flats, on St Joseph sound and around Honeymoon Island. We ended up with several good sized trout, porgies, ladyfish and jacks. Not only is the fishing fun for the kids, we usually see plenty of dolphins and other sea life in it’s nature habitat. This is a fantastic time of year for nearshore as the cooler water has moved a lot of fish closer to shore also. Although these are for kids we encourage the parents to fish also, and often times it becomes a friendly competition parents vs. kids. We do our best to make sure the kids win! The holiday’s are here and there’s nothing better than spending time on the water with the family, also it’s great way to get the youngster’s away from the electronics and into nature!
