    Adventure Coast Fishing Report

    by Capt. Josh Fritz

    Summer fishing is heating up. Summer is here and so is the heat. Start your day early and prepare yourself for the sun and heat. Drink water to stay hydrated. Wear plenty of sunblock and a cap or wide brimmed hat with sunglasses to protect your eyes.

    Fishing is great right now. We have tarpon all over the Florida Coast and right here in Florida’s Adventure Coast is the stomping grounds for world record tarpon. We have shallow water that is crystal clear making sight fishing for poons as good as it gets. Fly fisherman come from all around the world to target this fish and so should you.
