Hudson Fishing Overview

The fishing opportunities in Hudson are top notch with plenty of sought after inshore and nearshore species to target across a diverse range of habitats. Whether you love sight casting on the fly or bottom fishing the reefs, Hudson has trips for anglers of all levels. If the fishing alone isn’t enough, this area has mild weather and some of the most picturesque white sand beaches making it one of the best vacation spots in the country.

Hudson Freshwater Fishing

Lake Tarpon is on the east side of Hudson and happens to be one of the most robust fisheries in the world. This lake is fairly large with a surface area of 2,500 acres and a healthy largemouth bass. This fishery is thriving due to low fishing pressure which makes it a prime spot to wet a line. Biologists who monitor Lake Tarpon found that the largemouth population is well balanced making it one of the top ten best bass fishing lakes in the state.

Hudson Inshore Fishing

The shallow waters near Hudson are home to popular inshore fish and a few bucket list species. The incredible inshore fishing is due to an abundance of excellent habitat which offers plenty of cover and prey. While fishing with conventional tackle is common, anglers who love fly fishing will want to take advantage of these prime backwater spots.

From spring through the summer, tarpon swing through the area on their annual migration with snook following close behind. In the summer and fall giant bull redfish move through the bays and channels into the flats to spawn. When the water temperatures start to drop speckled trout become extremely aggressive and feed on all the baitfish and shrimp they can find.

Hudson Nearshore Fishing

Just off the coast of Hudson, the seafloor is littered with reefs and wrecks that hold bigger and more powerful fish. A nearshore trip will put you on some of the most amazing fish without spending a ton of time traveling to the first spot. Bottom fishing around deep structure is the best way to target snapper and grouper species along with the formidable amberjack. On the fringe of the reefs, schools of kingfish and cobia can be caught by casting bait.

    What an awesome trip! Captain Brad is super knowledgeable and was a great help with not only the typical trivia questions but tips and tricks on techniques and your style of fishing. He was willing to work with me on getting a variety of fish but also taking the time to get a tarpon, which was well worth the wait. He was a great coach during the long battle and would've lost it if it weren't for him. The boat was great and would work well for a smaller group. Overall was a fantastic trip. Ill be sure to book Captain Brad again next time I'm in the area.

    We had a great fishing trip in Clearwater Florida. Our captains (Brett and Luke) were very nice and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Brett and Luke. They put us on some King Mackerel that fought like crazy. It was a lot of fun. Ask for Captain Brad.

    Bad weather plagued our trip. A big fog bank rolled in on us. Caught a few but it could have been better. I saw no other boats catching fish either. Chris knows his stuff and I'm booking a Tarpon trip with him next month.

    The trip I had with Captain Roy was amazing! Being from out of town he was very helpful because I'm used to fishing for pan fish and fishing in Florida is a little different then that. My buddy, his 6 year old son, and I all had a lot of laughs and caught some fish. Caught my biggest fish and got to see a dolphin swimming around our boat. I'll definitely be planning on another trip with Captain Roy.
