Charlotte Harbor Flats
I took this shot almost two weeks ago on my buddy Capt. Eric Wrenn's boat when we decided to go looking for tarpon in late February. We found quite a few big fish cruising in 69 degree water but didn't hook any. What was most impressive was the clarity of the water all over the northern end of Pine Island Sound and the south part of Charlotte Harbor. I'd been spending the winter just off Matlacha chasing redfish by the hundreds and was happy to be reminded how much our deeper water can look just like the Keys this time of year and how productive it can be.
