The Gulf American Red Snapper opening day is next week, June1st. This season will remain open through the end of July. The deep sea fishing offshore of the Clearwater area has been phenomenal the past 10 years for ARS, Grouper and various other species. This year should be no exception and we are expecting good fishing throughout the season. The limit on ARS is 2 per person, so we always try to get into the Grouper and whatever else is open and in season along with some catch and release Amberjack, if you’re looking for a workout!
Along with the opening of Snapper season, our inshore boat has been getting into some Tarpon along the beaches, Snook and Redfish too. The Trout bite will remain good all summer, the Tarpon will be around until September and the Redfish all year.
