Passes (Saltwater)


Fishing the Passes are a good way to catch a variety of saltwater fish. A pass, also known as a strait, is where water will enter a narrow, navigable channel of water that connects two larger navigable bodies of water. These areas usually have a good flow of current during tidal changes. Fish will use this channel to move into the bays or back out to the ocean. Bait fish usually gets pushed through the passes with some current, which helps attract much larger fish. Depending on where you are fishing, you may be able to catch redfish, snook, speckled trout, tarpon, sharks and many more types of fish.
