Fishing Advice - visiting St. Pete area end of April
Hello good folks of Florida! NC native here. I’ll be spending my spring fishing vacation in Gulfport, Fl this year April 23-28. Was wondering if anyone has any advice for the inshore species this time of year. My main targets are snook, red and black drum, flounder, trout and possibly a tarpon. Already rigged up my tarpon reel yesterday with 50lbs braided on an 8ft MH rod. Mostly be fishing from shore, but will have my kayak with me. Any advice from rigs, setups, bait(live or artificial) tides, water structures, locations, your hotspots (j/k) etc will be much appreciated. I do believe we will be getting a charter one of the days (hopefully the 1st day). Thanks in advance for any advice and I’ll post up my success when it’s all said and done. Hoping to make this years trip epic!
