Home Ten Thousand Islands General Fishing & The Outdoors

any advice appreciated

Me and a buddy are coming down with our kayaks this weekend in hopes of landing a snook or tarpon. Any help would be greatly appreciated, not looking for anyone's secret GPS spots, just if we need to be fishing around the outer islands or more in the backwaters. More than willing to help someone out if there ever in the panhandle as well.

    Where are y'all launching from? Goodland, Marco, EC or Choko? Regardless, I think most of the snook are in transition from deep in the backcountry to the outside. I'd concentrate on creeks and shorelines in the middle grounds- leaning more outside than in. The tarpon bite has been getting better. I would look for them in some of the bights and deeper passes close to or on the outside. As always, keep an eye peeled for rolling fish. Good luck and let us know how you make out. Tight lines.

    Thank you so much for the information. We are thinking about EC since the first and only other time was good land and spent so much time just paddling out of the channel. Are they hitting on top water yet? Up here in the panhandle the water is still just a little bit off, two weeks of warm weather and it will be on fire.
