Peace River – Port Charlotte Fishing Report: Jan. 2016

Well fellow anglers for me it’s time for long johns and jig heads, must be winter time. No the long johns are not some hot new secret lure. Their main function is to keep this Florida boy warm.

Peace River – Port Charlotte Fishing Report: Nov. 2015

Peace Harbor — Port Charlotte Fishing Report: Oct 2015

Rain, rain, go away!! Hopefully with October here the summer rains will start to subside. This has got to be one of the wettest I’ve seen in a long time. I’m often asked if all this rain affects the fishing. I think the fish in Charlotte Harbor get used to the freshwater but on the other hand it does affect the bait.Sep 28th, 2015

Peace River – Port Charlotte Fishing Report: Sept. 2015

Rain has been in the forecast here in Florida the last few weeks. The Peace River is very high and all of its tributaries such as Horse Creek are dumping plenty of freshwater. The past few weeks the waters in Charlotte Harbor have become darkened due to this.Aug 26th, 2015
