As always, the full moon will bring about some good fishing over the next few days. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reviewed and discussed the current status of snook populations in Gulf and Atlantic waters at its June 12 meeting in Lakeland before deciding to allow the recreational harvest of Gulf of Mexico snook to reopen this September. The harvest of snook in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters has been closed since early 2010. The FWC also approved a proposal to make tarpon and bonefish catch-and-release-only fisheries.

Finally! After three years of waiting, the FWCC has opened up snook season! Yay! However, the same week they approved a proposal to make tarpon and bonefish catch-and-release-only fisheries and moved forward with a proposal to modify the types of gear used to target tarpon in Boca Grande Pass, which has some locals up in arms. Winds are expected to remain weak during the week with relatively flat seass; most shower and thunderstorm activity will remain over land areas the next few days. So anglers are encouraged to start tarpon fishing while it's hot!

Two fishing tournaments, the 2013 Fishing Classic in Stuart Florida and the Clay Roberts Memorial Inshore Slam Fishing Tournament in Jacksonville, will take place over the weekend. Tarpon fishing in the coastal gulf should be good next week. However if conditions aren’t good for tarpon in the gulf, there should be good action with trout, blues, Spanish mackerel and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Look for reds and big trout in shallow water early in the day. Catch and release night snook fishing in the ICW near passes should also be a good option.
